Oddly enough, the contribution of behavioral science to helping people deal with dog behavioral problems and train dogs has only been modest. In this course, we will explore modern approaches to dog behavioral problems and training that incorporate the latest findings from behavioral science.

We will cover the use of behavioral functional analysis to:

  • uncover the causes of undesired behavior
  • explore just what it is about humans that dogs find reinforcing
  • critically evaluate different approaches to dog training
  • survey the use of temperament tests to assess the suitability of dogs for different roles

This course is part of the Dog Behavior and Cognition XSeries.

This course is approved for CEUs by the following organizations:

  • Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT)

The origin of dogs is shrouded in mystery. In this course, you will learn how to interpret the often contradictory ideas about how, why, where and when dogs arose.

Geneticists, archaeologists, anthropologists and behavioral scientists offer a variety of often opposing ideas about how dogs—the first domesticated species—arose. Some place the origin of dogs over 100,000 years ago; others place the start of dogs just 12,000 years ago. Claims for the location of the origin of dogs range from China to Europe and many places in between. Diverse scholars have suggested dogs arose as trash scavengers or as hunters’ helpers.

This course will provide you with the tools you need to find your own way through the confusing claims about the origin of dogs.

This course is part of the Dog Behavior and Cognition XSeries. 

No previous knowledge of any of the sciences contributing to the origins of dogs is assumed. Form your own assessment of the mysterious origins of “man’s best friend.”

The world as it presents itself to dogs is not the same as the world humans experience. While dogs are far from blind, the experience of smell and sound plays a far more important role in their lives than ours.

In this course, you will learn how dogs think and comprehend the world around them. You will learn how simple relationships between objects like strings and tubes are completely incomprehensible to dogs, but social relationships are powerfully salient to both species.

The macroeconomy is the sum of all our productive efforts, spending, and income. Economic outcomes are the result of our complex interactions with other people, businesses, the government, as well as with people and businesses globally. In this economics course, you will learn the basic stylized framework that economists use to think about, account for, measure and explain these complex interactions and outcomes.

In the first half of the course, we consider how households decide how much to work and how to spend and save money. We will also look at how businesses make economic decisions such as how many workers to hire and how many machines and buildings to use to produce their products.

In the second half of the course, we consider how different policies can potentially enhance or distort market outcomes by offsetting, alleviating, or amplifying these inefficiencies. Our focus will be on five aspects of economic policy:

  • labor market policies and unemployment
  • R&D and innovation policies
  • fiscal policies and taxation
  • monetary policy and inflation

This orientation course is meant to introduce learners, teachers, and higher education leaders to the Global Freshman Academy (GFA). We recommend you browse the course to learn about GFA, its mission, how it works, the courses that will be available over the coming months, and the outcomes we hope to provide to our learners. Click "See more" to view frequently asked questions.

FAQ

Is Financial Aid Available?
We are pursuing options to make financial aid available, but at this time it is not available to GFA students.

Can I receive university credit for courses via GFA even if I have not received my high school diploma or passed the high school equivalency exam?
Anyone can take these courses for ASU credit. However, if you’d like to apply them toward a university degree, you will most likely need your high school diploma or proof that you’ve passed the high school equivalency exam. This will also depend on the policies of the particular university to which you are applying.

Is GFA for Freshman only?
No. While GFA is perfect for incoming Freshman who want to enjoy a flexible, economically-viable model for taking Freshman-level courses, ambitious high school students who want a jump-start for their college career, or adult-learners returning to Freshman year after a hiatus, these introductory-level courses can be taken by anyone who wants to continue lifelong learning or by educators who want to share resources with students.

Will GFA be extended to full college degrees?
At this time, edX and ASU are focused on breaking down the barriers to successfully completing Freshman year.

Will I get a letter grade on my Verified Certificate? 
No. Your Verified Certificate is provided by edX to any student who completes an ID Verified course with a passing score (which varies, but will be clearly communicated via course materials) and will not feature a letter grade. Additionally, your Verified Certificate does not equal credit earned by ASU and you will still need to complete the steps required for credit conversion after you have earned the Verified Certificate.

Will I get a letter grade on my Arizona State University transcript?
Yes students who pursue the ID Verified track will receive a letter grade from ASU for the course and an official Arizona State University transcript if they pay the credit fee.

Why is the estimated effort (18 hours per week) for these courses so high? 
As a tier-1 public research university, ASU courses reflect the rigorous standards faculty members expect of their students. Given this, ASU recommends that for a 7.5 week course, students should be prepared to spend 6 hours a week on coursework for every 1 course credit. So for a 3 credit course, you should expect to spend approximately 18 hours of coursework per week.

To what extent can I use credits earned via GFA to apply for a university degree?
Arizona State University is an accredited university. Credits you earn via Global Freshman Academy will appear on an Arizona State University transcript and can be used as transfer credits anywhere ASU credits are accepted. We recommend that you check with your university to see whether ASU credits are accepted. While having earned ASU credits before you apply to a university will not guarantee your admittance, we believe many universities will value the hard work you have already completed.

Will Arizona State University credits be accepted at international universities?
University credits are typically recognized globally when they come from accredited institutions. Please check with your local university to see Arizona State University credits are accepted.

After having taken a class and passed, what is the maximum allotted time to pay for the credit through ASU?
You will be able to upgrade from a standard Verified Certificate to credit for one year after you successfully complete and pass the course.

How will exam proctoring work?
Students who have chosen the Verified track in the course will be asked to re-verify their ID upon launching any proctored exam in a GFA course. During a proctored exam, students will be monitored for the duration of the exam, and suspect behavior will be flagged and reviewed within 3-5 days of exam submission. A webcam will be required for proctored exams.

Will GFA courses be offering any accommodations for people with learning disabilities? Especially during proctored exams?
edX is committed to achieving full accessibility (WCAG 2.0 compliant or better) in the platform. We are continuously making accessibility improvements as we build out new capabilities and programs in order to meet this stringent standard. In terms of our proctoring solution, we are working with the software vendor and our university partners to ensure anyone taking courses for credit eligibility has an equitable experience. Accessibility is a key requirement for Arizona State University, as well. All Global Freshman Academy courses delivered through the edX platform will be ADA compliant and transcripts for hearing impaired students will be available for each video.

What is the full list of courses offered via Global Freshman Academy?
To see the most up-to-date list of courses offered by Global Freshman Academy, visit the Future GFA Courses section of the Welcome to Global Freshman Academy Course.

If I fail a class in GFA, will it be reflected on my transcript? 
If you do not pass the course, you will not be eligible for the upgrade to credit. The failure will not appear anywhere on your ASU transcript.

If I fail a GFA course, will I have the option to retake it at no additional cost? 
With the Global Freshman Academy, you only pay for the course credit once you receive a passing grade. If you need to retake a course, you can do so at anytime but will be required to again pay the $45 ID Verification fee.

If I already know the material of a course offered via GFA, would I have the option to test-out and receive ASU credit? 
At this time, we do not offer an option to test out of the material offered in a GFA course. You will need to complete and pass all course material in order to be eligible for credit.

Will you have courses in other subject areas? e.g., Education, Management, Psychics, Computer Science, etc.
The Global Freshman Academy is a collection of freshman level courses that fulfill a specific set of general education requirements. The general studies focus areas will include Mathematical Studies, English, Humanities, Arts and Design, Social-Behavioral Sciences and Natural Sciences. To see the most up-to-date list of courses offered by Global Freshman Academy, visit the Future GFA Courses section of the Welcome to Global Freshman Academy Course.

How do I transfer the credits that I might earn through GFA?
Once you complete your course(s) and are ready to transfer the credit earned, you will simply request your official transcript from ASU and submit to the the university to which you are applying.

I have previously earned credits from other universities. Can I still take courses through GFA?
We would first recommend checking with the university of your choice, whether that is ASU or elsewhere, to see which of the credits you already have would transfer in and what freshman year classes you may still need to take. This will give you a better idea of what GFA courses you would find beneficial.
