GEN02 READINGS IN PHILIPPINE HISTORY
The course aims to expose students to different facets of Philippine history through the lens of eyewitnesses. Rather than relying on secondary sources such as textbooks, which is the usual approach in teaching Philippine History different types of primary sources will be used- written (qualitative and quantitative), oral, visual, audio-visual, digital covering various aspects of Philippine life (political, economic, social and cultural). Students are expected to analyze the selected readings contextually and in terms of content (stated and implied). The end goal is to enable the students to understand and appreciate our rich past by deriving insights from those who were actually present at the time of the event.
NLANDICHO: ART APPRECIATION
This course is a
3-unit course for second year students that will be taken for 18 weeks or 54
hours for lecture course. This course aims to provide students the opportunity
to observe, participate in, or otherwise experience works of art in order to
appreciate their role and purpose in life. Students will be exposed to various
works of art, ranging from the classical art forms to modern art installations,
performance art, indie films, enhanced e-books, and multimedia aesthetics.
These works of art will be examined from an aesthetic point of view and also as
reflections or critiques of the societies that produced them. The course will
thus build upon and hone the skill of understanding, critical appreciation, and
expression of one’s views. At the end of the course, the students must be able
to approach a work of art from a perspective informed by the history and
tradition of art and the social milieu in which it was produced as well as the
perspective of aesthetics. Such an approach would require a written appraisal
of the meaning and value of the works of art taken up in class and possible
some within the immediate vicinity of the student’s experience. The written
essays must clearly demonstrate not only understanding and appreciation of a
specified work of art, but also a sense of the work’s important in life,
culture, and history.
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIETY
The course deals with interactions between science and
technology and social, cultural, political, and economic contexts that shape
and are shaped by them.
This interdisciplinary course engages students to
confront the realities brought about by science and technology in society. Such
realities pervade the personal, the public, and the global aspects of our
living and are integral to human development. Scientific knowledge and
technological development happen in the context of society with all its
socio-political, cultural, economic, and philosophical underpinnings at play.
This course seeks to instill reflective knowledge in the students that they are
able to live the good life and display ethical decision making in the face of
scientific and technological advancement.

ACCOUNTING RESEARCH METHODS
The goal of this course is
to develop the ability to conduct empirical research on (1) the role of
accounting information in the firm (i.e., contracting and corporate governance,
(2) how managers choose to exercise their discretion to implement their firms’ financial
accounting, reporting, and disclosure strategies. In doing so, we will develop
an understanding of the economic, finance, and accounting theory that underlies
empirical accounting research. As we go through each study in this class, we
will focus on identifying and understanding three critical elements of each
study: (1) the research question, (2) the motivation, and (3) the research
design. An author must describe the incremental contribution to the literature
to motivate his paper. Therefore, we will also build an understanding of the
major results in the literature and evaluate the strength and weakness of each
