Campus Buildings

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) students looking to get ahead on their degree plan can fulfill an advanced elective credit, all while learning more about the works of Edgar Allen Poe, or delving into classic courtroom drama.

Two distinct courses will be offered this Wintermester through TAMIU’s College of Arts and Sciences. Wintermester courses will be held Jan. 2 – 13, 2023. These accelerated courses offer students an opportunity to earn credit for a full semester course in a mere two weeks.

The first course, Poe’s Tales of Terror (ENGL 4330), will discuss the works of acclaimed American writer Edgar Allen Poe. The course is led by Dr. Jonathan Murphy, TAMIU associate professor of English.

The course is offered Monday – Friday from 12:30 – 4:45 p.m. For additional information, email Dr. Murphy at jonathan.murphy@tamiu.edu.  

The second course, America on Trial (ENGL 3371), will help students understand the American legal system through 10 courtroom-based films. The course aims to illuminate the role of American courts, social fairness and the gaps between justice and the law. The course is taught by Regents Professor Dr. Manuel Broncano.  

The course is open to students of all majors, but does require a prerequisite Sophomore Survey of Literature. The course is offered Monday – Friday from 5:30 – 9:45 p.m. For additional information, email Dr. Broncano at manuel.broncano@tamiu.edu.
