1. There is a course, “Ethics and Biotechnology”, which offers Depth Science credit (DSC). It is offered under two course listings – PHIL 4530 and ADVS 3200. It is one and the same course, no matter what it is called. But if you are majoring in the humanities (majoring in Philosophy), and you seek to gain DSC credit for the course, you must sign up under ADVS 3200. If you goofed and took the course under the other listing, talk to me, and we’ll try to fix it.

2. I have many copies of the last two issues of Dialogue, the undergraduate journal of philosophy’s national honor society, Phi Sigma Tau. I will leave these copis in a box outside my office door (Main 208). Feel free to take a copy. They are good and interesting areticles by your undergraduate peers at other institutions.
