classes by prof. havstad
All academic classes for which I have acted as instructor are arranged alphabetically below. Pictures link to syllabi—just click to view and download. Wherever possible, links to folders containing the full set of readings for each class have also been provided, in the short course description.
There are two expandable menus at the bottom of the page which sort all the classes either by audience (for whom each class has been designed) or by institution (where each class is / was taught). This is in case you would like to look for "gen ed" classes in particular, or grad classes, or current (University of Utah) classes, etc. Please feel free to send any further questions to joyceDOThavstadATutahDOTedu
