Individual questions and concerns should be handled through an email directly to both instructors using the email address at the top of this syllabus. Email is the preferred and best way for contacting the instructors; please sure to include both instructors in the course. 


Students must use the MSU Student Email system.  The instructors will respond or at least acknowledge email messages from students within a maximum of five (5) business days when MSU is in session; in the summer, when MSU is open 4 days a week (Monday – Thursday), the instructors will respond within a maximum of 3 days. Beyond standard university holidays and breaks, the instructors will notify students of any extended periods of time when email contact is not practical (professional meetings, etc).


Students should include the course number (RADS 6233) in the subject line of the email and include his/her name in the body of the email. If students do not use the course number, the instructors will return with an email asking for more information; this will delay getting answers to students.


The instructors will be available to meet virtually with any interested students if they request it outside of the mid-semester check in and participation activity (see date in the course schedule). An appointment must be made and confirmed by email ahead of time with the instructors.    

This is an online course; however, there is one mandatory check-in/participation session. For the rest of the semester, students should be vigilant in logging onto D2L. Regular checks will insure that messages from the instructors are received in a timely manner. This course is on a schedule that will be strictly adhered to. See the Course Schedule for specific information about activities and due dates.

Please note, late submissions will NOT be accepted for this course and will result in a grade of “0”. If there are extenuating circumstances, please contact the instructors at least a minimum of two (2) days before the due date to make other arrangements. All assignments are considered final and will be graded as such.

Note: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

Student Honor Creed

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.
