Course: GU100 Title: Student Success Credits: 1
  This required one-credit hour course introduces Grantham students to various strategies for learning and helps develop skills essential for succeeding in an online education program. Students complete selfassessments to become familiar with their learning styles and how to use their learning styles in online studies. Students successfully completing this course are more proficient in time management, reading skills, writing techniques, memory abilities, and test-taking strategies. Students learn how to navigate within Grantham University's online course learning environment, submit assignments, and where to go for academic assistance. GU100 is normally taken with level 100 or 200 courses that offer the most common challenges in working in an online learning environment. Students complete assignments in both courses simultaneously as a learning strategy for general education and entry-level knowledge acquisition while developing successful online study skills. Successful completion of G
Course: CS192 Title: Programming Essentials Credits: 3
  This course introduces students to problem-solving concepts that programmers need to know and understand to skillfully use any programming language. Throughout this course students use language-independent problem-solving methods to structure logic (sequencing, branching, repetition), and data (records, objects). Students will also use diagramming and charting methods to communicate solutions and use arrays, menus, and flow charts to communicate structured programming solutions.
Course: EN361 Title: Technical Writing Credits: 3
  This course teaches the skills needed to produce such forms as memos, informal reports, proposals, and letters of applications. The course starts with theory and proceeds to skills and applications. Some of the topics studied include the Technical Writing Process, Research, Summarizing, Outlining, and Formatting of various reports. Your knowledge of the subject matter will be evaluated through objective tests, and your writing skills will be evaluated by your performance on writing assignments.
Course: ET105 Title: Fundamental Properties of DC Circuits and Lab Credits: 4
  This is a comprehensive course on the properties of Direct Current (DC) circuits. Topics include electrical components, electrical quantities and units; voltage, current, and resistance; Ohm's Law, energy and power; series and parallel circuits; series-parallel circuits; magnetism and electromagnetism. This innovative laboratory course is based on computer-simulated experiments for electric circuits using Electronics Workbench (Multisim). Circuits are modified easily with on-screen editing, and analysis results provide faster feedback than a series of experiments using hardwired circuits. The experiments are designed to help reinforce the theory learned in the circuit analysis course. A series of troubleshooting problems help students develop troubleshooting skills. Topics include voltage and current in DC circuits, Ohm's Law, series and parallel circuits, and voltage and current divider rules.
