COLLEGE INFORMATION

Named after Sir John Abbott, Canada's third prime minister, the College primarily serves Montreal's West Island community, although you can also meet students here from other parts of Quebec and Canada. Located in historic Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, on the western tip of the Island of Montreal, John Abbott`s distinctive red brick buildings and magnificent campus were originally deeded to McGill University in 1906 by Sir William Macdonald. Established in 1971, John Abbott offers five pre-university and eleven career programs, including Quebec`s only English-language CEGEP training in Pre-Hospital Emergency Care, Dental Hygiene, Information and Library Technologies, Engineering Technologies, Police Technology, and Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention. Over 5600 students are enrolled in the Day Division and another 2000 in Continuing Education. Only a half hour drive from downtown Montreal, the College is easily accessible by city bus or commuter train.

C ERTIFICATES

Certificates can be earned with any regular DEC, without extra courses or workload. They allow students to focus on and explore topics of interest to them within clusters of courses. Certificates are the most self-directed learning option a student can register for at John Abbott, and they are accompanied by extra-curricular opportunities as well as academic rewards.

Environmental Studies

Over the last fifty years the environment has increasingly become important to all sectors of society. Pollution, species extinctions, climate change, resource depletion, and a host of other environmental problems touch everyone now more than ever. Our basic life-support system is maintained by all the species that make-up the biosphere--from the smallest to the largest. The survival of these species is interconnected and dependent on each other. The actual processes that take place between species and the environment are extremely complex and fragile. If humanity causes the extinction of one species--it inevitably means the extinction of numerous species and the decline of our lifesupport system for future generations and us. Unfortunately, our current economic models have neglected to factor into the equation the tremendous benefits nature provides. However, when economists and environmental scientists have tried to estimate in dollars what it would cost us to accomplish the services nature provides the results are staggering. Using multiple databases, they estimate that nature provides $33 trillion dollars worth of services every year--that's nearly twice the annual Gross National Product or GNP of all the countries in the world combined. For example, forests prevent soil erosion, landslides, and flooding; maintain the purity of the air and water; affect local and global rainfall; temper climatic fluctuations; and promote watersheds and biodiversity. Other ecosystems like bogs, wetlands, grasslands, deserts, oceans, coral reefs, tundra-arctic regions, and so on similarly provide unique benefits. Learning to live in harmony with the natural environment and thinking critically about environmental issues requires an interdisciplinary approach. The Environmental Studies Certificate Option is an interdisciplinary curriculum that seeks to improve the student`s understanding of key scientific, economic, and political issues that underlie environmental problems and their management. Students can address environmental issues from a variety of perspectives drawn from the natural sciences, the social sciences, physical education, the humanities, and the arts. Students in the certificate choose from a variety of courses that best suit their own personal approach to environmental studies. Perhaps the best reason for pursuing an environmental studies certificate is a student's own personal interest in learning more about the environment. In some cases, earning a certificate can also make a graduate more attractive to employers and to gaining entry into university programs. Problems encountered in the "real-world" often require understanding beyond that of a single academic discipline. For this reason, more and more employers seek people with interdisciplinary training. The Environmental Studies Certificate Option exposes students to a broad range of knowledge. It helps put other courses into perspective. The Environmental Studies Certificate is evidence to university departments and employers that the student has acquired not only depth in the major field, but breadth beyond that field--an outstanding combination. Students within any of the college's programs can receive an Environmental Studies Certificate. To achieve the Certificate students must take at least six courses designated as Environmental Studies courses, and complete a "Special Project", involving a self-designated assignment, in one of those courses. A list of eligible courses can be found semester by semester in the Schedule of Courses or on the John Abbott College website. Such courses can be taken as the student's General Education requirements, as well as within their program of study. The Certificate will be granted upon graduation. For more information, please email the Coordinator of Environmental Studies at [email protected]

Peace Studies

Peace is multi-layered and multi-faceted. It is non-violence in thought, word and act; it is radical and reactionary, personal and political. It is urgent. As we attend to ourselves and personal interactions we reflect global problems. The Peace Studies Certificate brings together college courses which inform students about world issues and their impacts on our personal lives. It works to empower them to take action on their own, to allow them to state clearly, Peace matters. We are all involved in the exploitation and distribution of resources and services, and need to be aware of what our choices as consumers and civilians entail. The potential for widespread conflict is great in the interplay of global trade, consumption and aid. War is one of the least sustainable activities on earth, yet conflicts of ideology can result in violent confrontations bringing incalculable immediate and long-term human tragedy. Absolutism, the Page 8

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE

COURSE CALENDAR | College Information

belief in the superiority of one set of ideas over all others, often the refuge of the powerless and sometimes the smokescreen of the powerful, charts a course towards conflict and interference in the autonomy of others. Charters, Conventions, pressure groups, individuals and international institutions attempt to define peace. The UN and the International Court of Justice are key institutions. Organizations of civil society struggle to help achieve goals of social and economic justice, human rights, education, health, environmental responsibility and peace, while others work in the opposite direction toward maximum exploitation and consumption. In Canada there is a project to develop a federal Department of Peace, and many initiatives responding to the UN millennium call for a culture of peace through peace education. John Abbott is a pioneer in peace teaching: the Peace Certificate is over 30 years old, the oldest in the country. The Peace Studies Certificate helps individuals to unfold their own courses toward peace and deal with the repercussions of others` violence. Students can learn to identify models which promote peace, and move in that direction. To complete the Certificate, register with the certificate coordinator, take at least six Peace Studies courses from the Schedule of Classes course list, and undertake a special project, which is a self-designated assignment in one of those courses. The list of eligible courses can also be found on the JAC website: www.johnabbott.qc.ca/peacestudies/courses. These courses can be chosen among the student`s General Education requirements as well as within their program of study. For more information, please email the Peace Studies Coordinator at [email protected]

Women`s Studies and Gender R elations

WHA T I S W OM E N ' S S T U D I E S ?

Women`s Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study that has moved from being studies by, for and about women to exploring how different identities and forms of oppression, like sexism, racism and homophobia, overlap and intersect in many areas of life such as media, family, sports, politics, etc. What has remained as a defining feature of a Women`s Studies education is the connection of learning to community involvement and meaningful social change. A Women`s Studies education ideally enables students to describe their worlds, analyze problems and envision change.

WH O DO E S W OM E N ' S ST U DI E S ?

Everyone! There is a common misperception that feminism is anti-male. It isn`t. Feminism is against sexism, racism, homophobia and other systemic forms of oppression. Women and men in both pre-university and technology programs are eligible.

WH Y D O W O M EN ' S ST U DI E S ?

Women`s Studies students learn to ask unique questions about the world and their place in it. This helps them in their university studies, on the job and in daily life. Women`s Studies leads to a number of career paths in education, art, media, non-governmental organizations as well as to fields such as law, medicine and science. The best reason to do Women`s Studies is because you are curious or interested!

HO W DO Y O U D O W OM E N ' S ST U D IE S ?

Certificate programs are offered to John Abbott students as a supplement to their existing program of study, providing students an opportunity to explore a field of interest more deeply. Certificates do not require that students take extra courses, only that they choose six of their courses from those eligible for certificate credit as part of students` regular program.

COURSE CALENDAR | Program Structure

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

Each CEGEP program leading to a Diplome d'Études Collégiales or DEC is made up of two components: GENERAL EDUCATION and CONCENTRATION courses.

G ENERAL E DUCATIO N

The compulsory subjects common to all CEGEP programs are English (4 courses), French (2 courses), Humanities (3 courses), Physical Education (3 courses), and complementary courses (2 courses). These subjects are referred to as GENERAL EDUCATION. The two complementary courses, which also make up a part of the General Education requirements, provide an opportunity for students to explore subjects outside their field of concentration. Note that Liberal Arts (700.B0), Arts & Sciences (700.A0), and Double DEC (200.12) students achieve Complementary competencies as part of their Concentration Courses of choice.

C ONCENTRATION C OURSES

Concentration courses are those courses which are directly related to your program.

G ENERAL I NFORMATION

CO UR S E TI TL E S , N UM B E R S , P O N D ERA TI O N A N D RE Q UI S IT E S

Every course in the Calendar is identified with a title, number, ponderation, and possible requisite courses. For example: LITERARY THEMES 603- 103- MQ ( 2. 2. 3 ) | P: 603-101-MQ Weekly homework hours Weekly lab, workshop or studio hours Weekly teaching hours MQ: Ministère du Québec, RE: Réseau, AB: Abbott Course number Subject discipline code The ponderation (2.2.3) specifies the weekly learning activities of the course. In the above example, this means there are 2 teaching hours per week and 2 hours for lab, classroom or studio work. The last digit represents the weekly hours that should be spent on homework in order to pass the course. Also in this example, students would need to have passed the 603-101-MQ (prerequisite course) in order to register for the 603-103-MQ course. In other cases, you may have co-requisites which are courses that need to be taken either before or in the same semester as another one. Note that prerequisites are identified by a capital (P:) while co-requisites are marked with a capital (C:).

HO W T O CA L CU LA T E CRE D IT V A L U E

A credit is equal to 3 hours per week of learning activities (teaching, lab, studio, stage/workshop and homework). Credits for a course are determined by adding the total number of hours in the ponderation and dividing by three. For example: (2 + 2 + 3) ÷ 3 = 2.33 credits

Understanding the CEGEP program structure while trying to choose courses can be confusing. Academic Advisors are available throughout the year to provide assistance with course selection and diploma requirements. Make an appointment well before registration by dropping in to Herzberg Room 148 or by calling local 5290.

C OMPREHENSIVE A SSESSMENT

The Ministry of Education requires every student to pass a program comprehensive assessment and a program integrating activity (Exit Profile Competency 14: to apply what has been learned to new situations and Ministry objective 00UU: To apply acquired knowledge to one or more subjects in the sciences). The Ministry introduced these requirements because it recognized the importance of connecting the various components within each program. Rather than impose a major exam or paper at the end of the program, or requiring a single course to fulfill these requirements, the College has integrated them into the option` courses taken late in the program. These courses have been designed so that by passing any three option courses a student will have met the above requirements. The various competencies taught and assessed in the Science Program are outlined below. They are divided into two groups: those competencies that are taught and assessed in virtually every course in the program, and those that will be the primary focus of the option courses. It is recognized, of course, that many of the former will also be included in the option courses. The following competencies are taught and assessed in most courses of the program: To apply (the) a scientific method. To apply a systematic approach to problem solving. To use appropriate data processing techniques. To reason with rigour, i.e. with precision. To learn in an autonomous manner. To display attitudes and behaviour compatible with the scientific spirit and method.

The following competencies will be the special focus of the option courses of the program: To communicate effectively. To work as a member of a team. To recognize the links between science, technology and the evolution of society. To develop a personal system of values. To put into context the emergence and development of scientific concepts. To apply what has been learned to new situations.

Most, though not all, of these six competencies will be addressed in each option course. The requirement is that a combination of any three option courses will address them all. It is the responsibility of the Science Program that this requirement be met. Each option course will clearly state in its course outline which competencies are to be taught and how they are to be assessed.

S TUDI ES

Social Science students are offered a study option leading to a Certificate in International Studies. This option is open to all general Social Science students and is intended for those students who wish to enhance their Social Science Diploma (DEC) with an international program of study. The certificate combines cultural and multidisciplinary learning with the option of choosing language acquisition via the complementary courses. Students in the International Profile are also encouraged to take courses in General Education which reflect the profile. They, however, do not count towards the compulsory six (6) Social Sciences courses. There are suitable courses in English and Humanities as well as complementary courses including foreign language courses. The five (5) compulsory Social Science courses, required of every social science student, may not be counted as one of the six profile courses. However, both History of Western Civilization (330-910-RE) and Macroeconomics (383-920-RE) provide valuable information for the profile. Students are expected to do their research project in the compulsory course Integration in the Social Sciences (300-301-94) on a topic relevant to their chosen profile. To receive this certificate, students must take at least six (6) Social Science courses from the ones greyed out in the list from the previous page. Please arrange a meeting with the Coordinator of International Studies by sending an email to: [email protected] To receive a Certificate in International Studies students must take at least six (6) Social Science courses from the following lists:

Anthropology

Note: Some Anthropology courses are offered as complementary courses. Consult the complementary course section of the course calendar for a list of available courses. 381-100-AB (3.0.3) INTRODUCTION TO ANTH ROPOLOGY Anthropology is the study of all aspects of human life from the distant past to the present and throughout all areas of the world. In this course you will be introduced to the methods and concepts of physical anthropology, archaeology, and cultural anthropology. Through lectures and labs you will learn about human evolution, the prehistory and history of ancient civilizations, and the diversity of cultures in the world today. This introductory course will provide you with general knowledge of anthropology as well as prepare you for more specialized courses in the field. 381-250-AB (3.0.3) FIRST CIVILIZATIONS | P: 381-100-AB In this course, students will further their knowledge of the methods and concepts of Archaeology as a subdiscipline of Anthropology and will learn about the transition from hunting gathering to food production. The development of early civilizations in both the Old and New Worlds will be examined through a variety of case studies from Mesopotamia, Asia, Africa, Mesoamerica, and South America. Topics to be covered in this course will include the economic bases of early civilizations, the role of religion in early civilizations, the development of social stratification, and monumental architecture and art. 381-251-AB (3.0.3) PEOPLES OF THE WORLD | P: 381-100-AB In this course, students will further their knowledge of the methods and concepts of Cultural Anthropology and of the diversity of cultures in the world. Studying others encourages us to look more critically at ourselves. In this way, cultures come to serve as mirrors in which we can perceive our own images, past and present. This, in turn, should foster critical thinking and a broader understanding of ourselves and the world we live in. Selected cultures from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and elsewhere will be used as case studies illustrating fieldwork techniques, aspects of culture, and adaptation. Topics to be covered in the course will include adaptation, exchange and economic systems, domestic life, gender, anthropology and the modern world, and selected aspects of culture theory. 381-252-AB (3.0.3) HUMAN EVOLUTION | P: 381-100-AB In this course, students will further their knowledge of the methods and concepts of Physical Anthropology as a sub-discipline of Anthropology and will learn about human evolution from the early Primates through to modern Homo sapiens as well as about contemporary human biological diversity. Topics to be covered include mechanisms of evolution, Primates and Primate behaviour, the Australopithecines, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, the Neanderthals, early modern Homo sapiens, contemporary human diversity, and the concept of race. 381-253-AB (3.0.3) RACE AND RACISM | P: 381-100-AB In this course, students will further their knowledge of the methods of Anthropology as these address the concept of race and the social phenomenon of racism. We will look at the history and usage of the concept of race as well as the development of systems of racial stratication. This course has academic as well as personal dimensions: as we seek to understand the meaning of race and racism, we will continually reassess our own beliefs about race. Topics will include the explanation of the Anthropological perspective on race, exploring concepts like discrimination, prejudice, ethnicity, stereotypes and the multiple forms racism takes, as well as case studies including Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, Apartheid in South Africa, Slavery in America as well as racism in Canada.

Students learn about how business, consumer, and political objectives are played out in the global marketplace and how they impact on each other. Page 47

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 401-256-AB (3.0.3) E-BUSINESS | P: 401-100-AB

COURSE CALENDAR | Social Science Profile Information (300.A0)

This course explores strategic management issues while simultaneously examining the rapidly developing area of business conduct on the Internet, referred to as e-business (e-commerce). Internet technology and globalization are only two social environmental forces that are greatly influencing strategic management decision-making. By examining these and other forces, students will better appreciate the strategic thinking that goes on within a variety of organizations.

Economics

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Some universities require successful completion of both Macroeconomics and Microeconomics for entry into their Commerce programs. At some universities students may receive an exemption for Microeconomics and Macroeconomics if their grade is 75% or more. Please check with an Academic Advisor to verify admission requirements. 383-920-AB (3.0.3) MACROECONOMICS This course familiarizes students with important concepts such as the determination of gross domestic product, unemployment rate, consumer price index, business cycles, creation of money and balance of payments. Fiscal and monetary policies are examined within the context of the Canadian economy. Topics dealing with international trade and finance in relation to the Canadian experience are also discussed. 383-250-AB (3.0.3) MICROECONOMICS | P: 383-920-AB This course acquaints students with the basic principles of microeconomics such as consumer theory, demand and supply, elasticity, production and costs, market structure and behaviour, and the determination of factor incomes. Contemporary topics such as the environment, urban issues and government intervention in the market are discussed. Required course for the Commerce profile. 383-251-AB (3.0.3) MONEY AND BANKING | P: 383-920-AB A continuation of Macroeconomics, Money & Banking involves a more detailed analysis of the money supply, commercial banking system, nonbank financial intermediaries and the functions and operations of the Bank of Canada. A more advanced Macroeconomic model is developed to give students greater insight into the workings of the Canadian economy. Economic policy is discussed in relation to current developments in Canadian and world economies. This course fulfills the additional Commerce level 2 course requirements. 383-252-AB (3.0.3) INTERNATIONAL ECONOM IC RELATIONS | P: 383-920-AB This advanced course permits students to apply economic principles to a specific field of study. The pure theory of international trade, terms of trade, theory and applications of tariffs, balance of payments and exchange rates are discussed within the context of Canada`s substantial relation to other economies. The nature and effects of international economic institutions such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund are also examined. Although Macroeconomics (383-920- RE) is the only prerequisite, students will find this course more rewarding if they have already taken both Macroeconomics and Microeconomics.

Geography

ANCIENT GREECE FROM TROY TO ALEXANDER | P: 330-910-AB OR 332-100-AB Centring on Athens and Sparta, we shall study the history of the peoples of ancient Greece from their legendary origins until the absorption of the Hellenistic kingdoms into the Roman Empire in the first century BC. The course will involve the examination of the historical events that shaped Greece, however a more in-depth study of Greek civilisation from the standpoints of economics, literature, women, religion and mythology will augment the historical background not only of this course, but of the Introduction to Classics module as well. 330-256-AB (3.0.3) ROME FROM REPUBLIC T O EMPIRE | P: 330-910-AB OR 332-100-AB A detailed study of the key issues in the cultural and political life of Rome between the age of the kings in the eighth century BC until the fall of the Empire in AD 476. The course aims to discuss the formation of the Roman Empire and how this affected Rome, Italy, and the Mediterranean, both culturally and politically. The rise of the Republic and the conquest of Italy and the Mediterranean are examined against the background of an emerging Roman identity and the influx of Greek culture into Rome. In addition, the transition from Republic to monarchy under the emperors is analysed. The eventual downfall of the Empire and its juxtaposition with the rise and eventual triumph of Christianity closes the historical component of the course. Also, the class features a more in-depth study of Roman civilisation from the standpoints of the military, economics, literature, women, religion and mythology; this will augment the historical background not only of this course, but of the Introduction to Classics module as well. 330-257-AB (3.0.3) A HISTORY OF RUSSIA AND THE USSR | P: 330-910-AB The course will examine the main events in Russian and Soviet history from Kievan Rus` to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

METHODOLOGY

360-300-RE (2.2.2) QUANTITATIVE METHODS IN SOCIAL SCIENCES Quantitative information forms an essential aspect of Social Science research and a major part of the information we receive about the contemporary world through newspapers and other media. This course introduces students to the use and abuse of numbers in social research and reporting. Students learn where numbers come from, what to do with them, and what can be learned from them. The proper uses of basic descriptive statistics and statistical inference are explored through examples from all the Social Sciences. In addition to lectures, students experiment with a variety of quantitative methods using a statistical software package in a weekly laboratory. 300-300-AB (2.2.3) SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH METHODS | P: 360-300-RE Whereas Quantitative Methods focused on building numeracy skills for social science students, this course focuses on the qualitative elements of social science research across the disciplines. A number of qualitative research and sampling methods are explored through exercises and research reports. Substantial time is also devoted to effective library search techniques and to reading, summarizing and writing assorted and complex texts. 300-301-AB (1.2.4) INTEGRATION OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES | P: 300-300-AB This is the final course for graduating Social Science students. The course draws on previous learning across level one, level two, and general education courses. Each student designs and carries out an independent research project, and reflects on college learning. This project includes interpretation, synthesis and evaluation of their own evolved research problem to theories and topics encountered in prior college learning. This is accomplished in close coordination with a faculty member and student peers throughout the course of the semester. The final research project, presentation, and program reflection serve as the comprehensive assessment for the Social Science Program. This is a required course for the Social Science program and is taken in the student`s graduating semester.

PHILOSOPHY

Being philosophical entails exploring such fundamental questions as: What can we know, and how? What is the good life? Can we achieve it? Are we free, or is every act caused? Is beauty just in the eye of the beholder or out there in beautiful things? Do we have immaterial minds or souls as well as material bodies? Is the universe orderly or chaotic? Are there correct rules of thinking? Philosophy is a systematic attempt to understand the world and our experience. Philosophy questions basic principles, assumptions, and prejudices. Philosophy courses will encourage students to seek their own answers to the Great Questions systematically and critically, in the context of the thoughts of previous seekers from around the world. Philosophy courses are also offered by the Liberal Arts and Creative Arts, Literature and Languages programs. 340-101-AB (3.0.3) PHILOSOPHICAL QUESTIONS Note: Students who have completed 340-100-AB may not take this course. Philosophy is the love of wisdom. It is the pursuit of understanding. It arises out of consciousness, self-consciousness, memory and imagination. It is generated by curiosity, wonder and inquisitiveness about the universe and about our place in it. It is the search to know what is, what could be, and what should be done. This course introduces students to some of the basic philosophical questions by examining works across time and space, diverse cultures and traditions. 340-252-AB (3.0.3) PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION | P: 340-100-AB OR 340-101-AB Note: Students who have completed 340-251-AB may not take this course What is the point of education? What is worth learning? Where should learning take place? A philosophy of education critically examines how knowledge is organized and transmitted. Can reality ever be represented "objectively"? How do the presuppositions that operate in different societies end up in the curriculum? Are we educating the next generation so that they may participate meaningfully in collective life or are we instructing them in alienation and apathy? 340-253-AB (3.0.3) SOCIAL AND POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY | P: 340-100-AB OR 340-101-AB Social and political philosophy examines notions of power and authority within large groups (communities, societies, states). The key questions are age-old: What is the purpose of government? What is the best form of government? Are humans fundamentally equal or unequal? What are our rights and obligations to others? Is war an acceptable way to solve disagreements? Answers to such questions will vary according to historical context. Ancient civilization endorsed slavery. The Christian era equalized all humans before God, but did not support social mobility. Modern political theory grants natural rights to all, opening the door to market-based progress. Critical theory of today shows the paradoxical loss of freedom in the era of mass society. This course may explore both Western and non- Western traditions. 340-254-AB (3.0.3) PHILOSOPHY AND THE CRISIS OF MODERNITY | P: 340-100-AB OR 340-101-AB This course investigates the philosophical dilemmas raised by the apparent successes of the modern world: scientific and technological development, the recognition of human rights, the growth of democracies and mass markets, the separation of Church and state. Can modernity truly realize its ideals of happiness, social justice, and human dignity? Is the modern citizen condemned to anguish, loneliness and loss of meaning in a fast-paced world that erodes traditions and pursues unending material progress? Answers to these questions are provided by various critical and radical theorists. 340-255-AB (3.0.3) ENVIRONMENTAL PHILOS OPHY | P: 340-100-AB OR 340-101-AB This course examines human relationships to the environment and whether we have obligations to future generations and other species. How can we approach our interconnectedness with all life forms residing in the natural world? What resources (poetic, epistemological, philosophical, moral, spiritual, political, scientific, and so on) can we draw upon for tentative answers to these enduring questions? What are, for example, the practical implications of various philosophical theories and positions for deforestation, pollution, climate change, habitat destruction, species extinction, and nuclear energy?

PSYCHOLOGY

Psychology is the study of the mind and the behaviour of humans and other animals. It employs the scientific method as much as possible. The study is made on many levels, from the biological workings of the brain to relationships between people. Psychology courses help students understand what they and others do, think and feel, from infancy to old age. 350-102-AB (3.0.3) INTRODUCTION TO PSYC HOLOGY This course introduces students to the scientific study of specific aspects of human behaviour and mental processes including: (1) the evolution of psychological thought and the identification of major psychological perspectives; (2) research methods in the study of Psychology; (3) the biological basis of behaviour, including the structure and function of the brain and nervous systems; (4) cognitive and emotional processes and, (5) learning and human adaptation. Students acquire the basic concepts and processes associated with the study of human behaviour. Further emphasis is placed on the understanding of how this knowledge and these abilities may relate to our lives and how they may apply in varying cultures.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 350-250-AB (3.0.3) CHILD PSYCHOLOGY | P: 350-102-AB

COURSE CALENDAR | Social Science Profile Information (300.A0)

We all share the human experiences of birth, growth, and change. This course examines the physical, cognitive, and social development that occurs from prenatal development to adolescence. Emphasis is placed on an understanding of the interaction of nature and nurture, and how development occurs within contexts and cultures. By studying the theories and research on human development the student will become more sensitive to the complexities and ambiguities inherent in understanding child psychology. 350-251-AB (3.0.3) INTERACTION AND COMM UNICATION | P: 350-102-AB Communication makes us human: whether at school, work or play we are constantly absorbing information, asking questions and trying to make sense of and share our discoveries. We often take this feature of our experience for granted, not realizing that social interaction and communication are skills which can be studied and improved upon to enhance the quality of our lives. This course exposes students to the patterns of communication and social interaction and helps them appreciate the potential for personal development that may follow. Topics covered in this course include: relevant components of the processes of human interaction and communication; self image, self confidence, and their characteristics; interpersonal perception; verbal and nonverbal communication; obstacles and suggestions for enhancement; decision making and problem solving; work groups; leadership and membership; assertive and compliant behaviours and their consequences. 350-252-AB (3.0.3) MENTAL HEALTH | P: 350-102-AB This course is designed as an introduction to abnormal behaviour. Topics include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, schizophrenia and other syndromes. Course content includes the classification of disorders, various theoretical perspectives on etiology and therapy, and relevant research. 350-253-AB (3.0.3) SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY | P: 350-102-AB This course explores the behaviour of people in groups. It examines the individual`s reaction in the group as well as the process of group interaction. Major topics include the formation and functioning of groups, attitudes, roles, leadership, prejudice and aggression. The impact of interpersonal relationships will also be explained. 350-257-AB (3.0.3) THE HUMAN BRAIN | P: 350-102-AB This course is intended for anyone interested in the mind-body problem or how a biological organ, the brain, can give rise to what we call the mind. Topics include the biological basis of perception, sleep and dreams, language, thinking, emotion, and memory. The study of these topics will be undertaken on many levels, from the identification of the major brain areas involved to the understanding of basic biological processes occurring at the level of neurons or nerve cells. Students will also be introduced to the basic research methods used to study the brain. Special attention will be given to brain dysfunctions and what they reveal about the mind and brain connection. 350-258-AB (3.0.3) PSYCHOLOGY OF THE PA RANORMAL | P: 350-102-AB This course focuses on what psychology has to offer regarding the study of phenomena as yet unexplained by formal science. Topics covered range from extra sensory perception and altered states of consciousness to ghosts, ufos, and psychics. The evidence for the existence of such mysteries as well as possible explanations of them will be explored.A general review of theories and research on the psychology of learning, perception, cognition, consciousness, and personality will form the basis from which to consider paranormal phenomena. Furthermore, this course emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills and the appreciation of the benefits, both intellectual and personal, that may be gained from investigating these issues. Whether you see yourself as a skeptic or a believer or are simply curious, consider yourself welcome.

EVOLUTIONARY PSYCHOL OGY | P: 350-102-AB Evolutionary Psychology is the scientific study of human nature. This course provides an introduction to the study. Throughout the century of psychology, most psychologists have believed that the human mind is shaped almost totally by the individual`s environment - that is, by nurture. However, it is now increasingly recognized that our minds are also pre-programmed by our genes, shaped by millions of years of biological evolution. By nature, we are a highly intelligent and complex social animal. 350-261-AB (3.0.3) PSYCHOLOGY OF LEARNI NG AND MEMORY | P: 3 50-102-AB This course provides students with an introduction to the basic processes and principles of learning and memory. Topics include the nature-nurture debate, the basic learning paradigms (classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and observational learning), the nature of memory and how it works. The underlying biological basis of learning and memory within the nervous system as well as factors which strengthen learning and memory will also be emphasized. Special attention will be given to practical applications to everyday life. 350-262-AB (3.0.3) PSYCHOLOGY OF SPORT | P: 350-102-AB Fascination with sport has reached new heights. This course examines sport behaviour within the current models and perspectives of psychology. Topics include the social psychological dimensions, personality assessment, aggression and sport violence, anxiety and stress management, and leadership in sport, drug abuse, and athletic motivation. Within these topics consideration will be given to children and adolescents in sport, high-risk athletes, minorities, the female sport experience, and the role of the coach in sport. Further analyses include the nature of the sport psychologist and the applications of mental preparation for the elite and professional athlete. 350-264-AB (3.0.3) SENSATION AND PERCEPTION | P: 350-102-AB This course will introduce the student to the scientific study of sensation and perception. The central theme is the illustration of how our senses do not function as a digital camera, taking an exact picture of our environment. On the contrary, our senses detect information from our environment like viewing pieces of a puzzle, and actively builds an internal representation or final percept (puts the pieces together to form a complete picture), be it visual, tactile, olfactory, or gustatory, of the outside world. Students will examine the role of both physiological (sensory pathways) and psychological (experience, memory and cognitive) factors in these fundamental processes.They will illustrate how the nature nurture struggle applies to even these basic sensory capabilities. It will be shown how our percept is typically an accurate representation of the environment but is not immune to perceptual errors (illusions). The question remains, are these errors or are they the byproducts of efficient rule-governed and experience-based systems. Visual topics include brightness, object perception, attention, color, depth, size and motion processing. Other sensory systems, including hearing, touch, smell and taste, will also be explored.

RELIGION

Religious Studies attempt to analyze and understand the variety and nature of human faith/belief systems and their impact on all aspects of personal, social, economic and political life. Religion continues to be a major force for both unity and division in our world and religious beliefs and practices inform, shape and transform the human story every day. Religious studies, by examining and illuminating these belief systems, explore the variety and richness of the human response to questions of cosmology, fate, purpose, destiny, the unknown and the unknowable. Religion courses are also offered in the Liberal Arts and Creative Arts, Literature and Languages programs. 370-100-AB (3.0.3) WORLD RELIGIONS From a world full of spirits to a world without spirit (animism to modern atheism), humans the world over have dealt with issues of belief in a vast variety of manners. This course will introduce students to the basic questions that religious studies and religions try to answer as well as the nature of the beliefs and practices of several different types of faith systems. Students will develop the vocabulary and tools needed to explore religious phenomena and communicate respectfully with others about their discoveries.

COURSE CALENDAR | Social Science Profile Information (300.A0)

Where do the notions of heaven and hell come from? Do communities share beliefs about heaven and hell? This course investigates some of the origins, development and significance of these ideas, as well as the concept of an afterlife. We also explore the history of personified evil in the person of Satan or the devil. We will explore how the concepts of Heaven and Hell can be used to justify a merciful God despite the existence of evil in the world, and how they are used to justify suffering and violence in this world. 370-253-AB (3.0.3) RITUAL AND TRADITION | P: 370-100-AB What is the relationship between ritual practice and transcendence? How do myths provide practitioners with models of and for reality and a language for spiritual experiences? By what ritual means can one deepen spiritual understanding and create a meaningful reality? Through an examination of these and other questions, this course will focus on the day-today practice of religious communities both contemporary and historical. 370-254-AB (3.0.3) NEW SPIRITUAL MOVEME NTS | P: 370-100-AB How do new spiritual movements worldwide challenge or complement traditional religions? In this course we will discuss new possibilities explored by individuals and groups dissatisfied with religion. These will include a selection of pre-Christian practices, New Age movements and reinterpretations of ancient traditions. We will examine how these attempts to create a spiritual journey which resonates with contemporary reality. 370-255-AB (3.0.3) RELIGION, BODY AND MYTH | P: 370-100-AB Bodies! Everyone has one. Religious traditions and spiritual communities have generated energy, anxiety, excitement, anguish, joy and love over what to do with them. Is the body to be denied, overcome, embraced, trained? May we modify, mutilate, reject, tattoo or terminate our bodies? Love, decorate or praise them? Are gender norms and sexual practices part of religion, or are they socio-cultural expressions? The body is seen as an obstacle to leading a good or spiritual existence and is also celebrated as a gift that can lead to understanding the divine.

SOCIOLOGY

Sociology is the scientific study of society and an integral discipline of the Social Science program. Sociology courses give students valuable employment skills: · a critical understanding of the impact of social context · the ability to analyze information · the ability to communicate clearly and persuasively · the ability to do sociological research Sociology prepares you for a fascinating range of careers from television producer, social worker, journalist, lawyer, educator, and survey researcher. 387-100-AB (3.0.3) INTRODUCTION TO SOCI OLOGY I Sociology is the study of how individuals connect to groups and institutions, and how these connections help us understand the causes and consequences of human behaviour. In this course you will look at everything from globalization in the developing world to the self-esteem of individuals; from the changing Canadian family to the divisions of race, gender, and class; from corporate wealth and power to homelessness and street kids. Sociology is the broadest of all the social science disciplines, We will learn using lectures, discussions, and multi-media presentations. 387-251-AB (3.0.3) MASS MEDIA AND POPUL AR CULTURE This course applies the sociological imagination` to understanding the media and its influence on our everyday lives. We discuss the historical, social and economic forces that explain the content of the media and whose reality is actually being portrayed. We analyze the differences in the representations of the haves and have nots in the media and how different races, classes and genders are portrayed. How does limited media ownership influence our media and who benefits from the content of our media?

LOVE, RELATIONSHIPS AND FAMILY | P: 387-100-AB While love, relationships and family are by no means dying or withering away, they are currently experiencing many profound and extensive changes. This course examines historical changes the family and intimate relationships are undergoing and the implications these changes have on our everyday lives. Topics include premarital and extramarital sex; cultural definitions of romance and love; domestic violence and intimate terrorism; cultural intermarriage, and the impact of reproductive technologies. 387-253-AB (3.0.3) SOCIOLOGY OF SEXUAL RELATIONS/GENDER REL ATIONS | P: 387-100-AB If our society is so sexually liberated`, why are people still paying money to have others take their clothes off? Do you ever wonder whether sex has just become another consumer activity, with more spectators than participants? With all this talk about equality` why do women earn approximately 70% of what men earn, and why are they still afraid to walk alone at night for fear of being sexually assaulted? Why is the school dropout rate higher for boys and why do they feel they must maintain a tough guise`? Questions such as these provide the focus of the course, designed to examine sexual and gender concerns we all face in our daily lives. 387-254-AB (3.0.3) SOCIOLOGY OF EDUCATI ON Education is the social institution responsible for the systematic transmission of knowledge, skills, and cultural values within a formally organized structure. This course examines many issues that arise with regards to education in Canadian society including who is to decide what should be taught in public school and the purpose of education. In addition, students will learn about the history of schooling, residential schools, public and private schools, the rise of the meritocracy and credentialism, technology in schools, global perspectives in education and home schooling as a social phenomena. Sociological theories and perspectives will allow the student to explore race, class and gender as areas of concern. Students are encouraged to examine their own educational experiences and to envision what the future of school and education will be like. 387-256-AB (3.0.3) CURRENT SOCIAL ISSUES Sociology helps us gain a better understanding of our social world and of ourselves. It enables us to see how behaviour is largely shaped by the groups to which we belong and the society in which we live. This course allows the individual instructor to choose a topic of study that is most relevant in each semester. Every topic is examined from a sociological perspective enabling the student to understand social phenomena in depth and to understand the place of the individual within a social setting. Topics may include; terrorism, diversity, social change, digital media, or any other current, important issues in society today. 387-258-AB (3.0.3) CRIME & SOCIAL CONTROL | P: 387-100-AB What exactly is a crime`? Has society entered a period of escalating or decreasing violence and public disorder? What should be done to calm a public`s growing sense of insecurity and vulnerability? Do different cultures vary greatly in their attitudes toward crime prevention? Can we expect our criminal justice system to be both fair and effective? To approach questions like these, the course examines the nature of crime (i.e. murder, sexual assault, prostitution, drug abuse, organized crime and business crime) and the various means, from policing and imprisonment to prevention, community safety and restorative justice, which have been designed to control and respond to crimes. This course is suggested for students who are considering careers in Criminology, Police Sciences, Law, Social Work and other related fields of study. 387-259-AB (3.0.3) SOCIAL PROBLEMS | P: 387-100-AB Learning about social problems can be a highly rewarding experience for the students. Although we live in difficult and challenging times, a social problems course can provide a way to develop critical thinking and teach the student how to apply sociological concepts and perspectives to analyze specific social problems such as violence, abuse, drug addictions, crime, terrorism, war, and other pressing social problems. To the students taking this course, welcome to an innovative examination of social problems, their impact on our society and our everyday lives - one of the most stimulating and interesting fields of study in sociology.

340-PHL-AB (3.0.3) PHILOSOPHY: CULTURE AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF REALITY Culture and civilization are to be understood as the contested and fluid realm of meaning expressed in the various ways human beings attempt to make sense of the world they inhabit. We`ll examine our collective and individual experience as symbol makers and symbol consumers. 340-PHA-AB (3.0.3) PHILOSOPHY OF ART & AESTHETICS Oscar Wilde observed that we know the price of everything and the value of nothing. And yet, people make and enjoy art and seek and respond to beauty. We will explore the changing nature, value and meaning of art and beauty, by means of readings, outings, films and show and tell. 340-PHC-AB (3.0.3) PHILOSOPHY OF COMMUNICATIONS This course connects the student`s experience of the creative process with the presentation of the arts to an intended audience. Students will explore practices related to the dissemination of a variety of contemporary art forms. The twentieth century began with the awareness that language is central to philosophy; it ended with an appreciation that the many media have added new complexities to the human project. 370-REL-AB (3.0.3) WORLD RELIGIONS From a world full of spirits to a world without spirit (animism and atheism) and everything in between, this course explores the myriad expressions of belief through the stories humans have told one another. These stories have always been a rich source of inspiration to the arts. 5 2 0 - AH A - A B ( 3 . 0 . 3 ) ART HISTORY: MODERNISM TO POST MODERNISM Twentieth century was full of provocative and challenging ideas about art. Are aesthetic value and meaning of art socially constructed or they are simply the product of a particular historical moment and culture? Why did artists want to destroy traditional notions about fine art? Class activity will focus on discussion of specific artists, movements, and artworks from a variety of viewpoints.

COURSE CALENDAR | Creative Arts, Literature & Languages (500.A1)

Dramatic Literature has always played a major role in culture and civilization. This course will look at the ways in which literature, especially the dramatic arts, has been created, spread, and interpreted. How does it mean? What does it produce? What effect do plays, movies, entertainment, and especially the scripts that make them possible, have on us and our world? This course will emphasize engaged reading, polished writing, and dramatic presentations. Reading about the link between theatre and film and our world, as well as experiencing that world as performers, readers, and critics, are an integral part of the course.

Cultural Studies Courses | Media Arts

530-FSA-AB (3.0.3) INTRO TO FILM AS ART This course offers tools for understanding film as an art form by analyzing the techniques of creation that result in the final film. This course is an in-depth study of the medium covering a number of films over an extended period of film history. 530 FSB-AB (3.0.3) ADVANCED TOPICS IN FILM This course offers a focused study of one aspect of the world of film. Areas of study may incluse a specific film genre (e.g. comedy, horror), the body of work of a director, the world of animation or documentary, studies in a specific national cinema (e.g. Québécois cinema, Asian cinema) or studies from a particular film movement (American independent, French New Wave). 530-MSA-AB (3.0.3) VISUAL CULTURE & COM MUNICATION This course examines the complex relationship between art, media, ideology, knowledge, and power. Skills of critical analysis will be developed by gaining an understanding of how various forms of media work formally and stylistically. The course will teach students to analyze and criticize various forms of media, and to understand how they shape public opinion. They will learn to locate various forms of media within their economic, social and cultural contexts. 530-MSB-AB (3.0.3) ADVANCED TOPICS IN MEDIA This course will examine the speed with which the twentieth century created an electronically linked planet. From community radio to blogs, students will be introduced to the practices of New Media in art and society.

Students will uncover the secrets of the playwright and unleash them on an audience. 560-TWG-AB (3.0.3) THEATRE WORKSHOP: GE NRES In the Genres course students will learn techniques of reading and understanding theatrical texts using different methods of discernment. These methods include (but are not limited to): analysis of themes and character archetypes, comparison to other theatrical texts of the same ilk and placing the text in an historical and cultural context. They will then transfer these insights into a practical expression of understanding. 602-DCA-04 (2.2.2) LINGUISTICS: LANGUAGES OF THE WORLD (LANGUES DU MONDE) Ce cours bilingue vise l`acquisition de notions de base en linguistique telles que les différentes familles de langues, la phonétique, etc. ainsi que la connaissance de différentes langues du monde dans leur contexte géographique et socioculturel.

Students planning on university studies in law, education, languages, business, communications, social sciences and a broad range of other advanced studies (except science) will find Liberal Arts an excellent foundation. The Liberal Arts preuniversity DEC program offers a group of courses designed to take students on an intellectual journey of the study of humanity, beginning with pre-history and ending with the contemporary. In this journey, the courses draw upon many disciplines, especially history, philosophy, literature, art, and religion. They also combine and cut across disciplines, to explore topics such as the history and methodology of science and principles of mathematics and logic. Liberal Arts helps students reach a clear understanding of the culture in which we live, and the many roles an individual can play in it. Equally important are the academic skills which Liberal Arts develop over four semesters: analysis and critical thinking, personal responsibility, aesthetic response, and communication, both written and spoken. Liberal Arts courses are sequenced in order to build knowledge and academic skills. The Program of Study (above) indicates the sequence of required Liberal Arts courses in the program.

For all the information follow these links: /college.information /program.structure /general.education /evaluation.policy

The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system, of which paramedics are a part, is a complex health care system made up of personnel, equipment, and resources established to deliver aid and emergency medical care to the community. It includes both prehospital and in-hospital care. The roles and responsibilities of the paramedic in this system have changed dramatically in the past 10 years. Advanced Pre-Hospital Emergency Care is an enormous responsibility for which the paramedic must be mentally, physically and emotionally prepared. Students must realize that they will be responsible for providing not only competent Pre-Hospital Emergency Care but also emotional support to patients and families. Students also need to realize that during their careers as paramedics they will be exposed to many kinds of physical and emotional stress. They will face situations involving infectious diseases, fear, physical danger, death and dying. They must thus become familiar with the use of equipment and strategies that will help them remain physically and emotionally safe and healthy. By understanding safe practices, they will be better able to avoid harm from violent people, roadway hazards and infectious diseases. Students will be taught to make appropriate choices about how they live rather than having a physical or emotional injury make that decision for them. They will also learn how they can take action to prevent illness and injury, not only in their own lives but in those of their co-workers and the patients they encounter.

For all the information follow these links: /college.information /program.structure /general.education /evaluation.policy

Courses in the three-year Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention Program provide students with a sound foundation in applied social sciences and in criminology, penal law, and psychology. Student activities and fieldwork play an integral part of the program. Students are encouraged to participate in community and campus programs connected with Correctional studies to allow them to exercise and develop interpersonal skills. Fieldwork courses involve students working in youth and adult correctional institutions such as youth rehabilitation centres, prisons, penitentiaries, half-way houses, community organizations, schools, drug rehabilitation centres, etc. NOTE: Students must be physically able to successfully complete the Self-defence course and the CPR First Responder course, two compulsory courses required to graduate in the program. Students who have been found guilty of a criminal offence may be blocked from fieldwork placements. A basic knowledge of French is an asset. Although graduates of the Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention Program find rewarding and challenging careers within the adult and juvenile correctional systems and related fields, a number of them choose to pursue their studies at university in programs such as Criminology, Sociology, Psychology or Social Work. Career opportunities for our graduates include working with juveniles in community programs, rehabilitation centres, group homes, court services, drug rehabilitation centres, or counselling victims, and more. They may also find employment working with adult offenders as correctional officers, drug rehabilitation counsellors or in the development of recreational, educational and vocational programs for adult offenders. With further studies, some may choose to work as probation or parole officers within the Quebec or Canadian correctional system.

GENERAL EDUCATION

V ISION S TATEMENT

The teachers in General Education believe that students should develop breadth through the study of English, Humanities, French and Physical Education, as well as achieve some depth of knowledge in the specific disciplines offered in their programs. They see their role in the programs as providing students with a well-rounded and balanced education. Through the courses offered in General Education, students learn to appreciate, as well as critique, some of the major influences in Western and non-Western thought and literature. They also learn to communicate in written and oral French in order to live and work in Quebec. They learn the principles of good health and how to integrate them into their lifestyle. They explore disciplines and develop competencies that are complementary to their program of study. Students learn to articulate their own ideas based on relevant premises leading to logical conclusions. They learn to acknowledge, appreciate, and respond to the ideas of teachers and fellow students. These skills help them to develop an informed awareness and a critical appreciation of our social and cultural milieu so that they can make informed intellectual, aesthetic, and ethical decisions, as well as acquire a sense of their membership in society, with its attendant rights and responsibilities.

Three (3) block "A" courses

These courses are intended to bring students to a college level of proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking, with particular emphasis on written production and reading comprehension. Regular and ongoing exercises develop students` language and analytical skills, while the reading material, representative of various genres and periods and expressing a variety of themes, encourages an appreciation of the aesthetic and cultural value of literature. 603-101-MQ Introduction to College English AVAILABLE IN TWO LEVELS 603-102-MQ Literary Genres MAY BE TAKEN AFTER 603-101 603-103-MQ Literary Themes MAY BE TAKEN AFTER 603-101

One (1) block "B" course

With due attention to the varieties of discourse in speech, print and images that students are likely to encounter in the programs and their lives outside of school, these courses teach students how to become active and aware users of discourse as well as effective and ethical communicators. It is our firm conviction that these goals are valuable not only to programs wishing to produce skilled graduates but also to the vital role of General Education in higher education and in the culture at large. 603-200-AB English for Specific Programs

Students should consult the course descriptions online and schedule of classes before registering for a course as not all sections are offered each semester.

603-102,103, 200 | BY WRITING TUTORS

PLACEMENT ONLY

This course is designed for students who have developed a high level of proficiency in their own writing and who are interested in sharing their knowledge with other students. The course heightens awareness of the writing process and provides an important service to students who seek assistance in developing their language skills. Students will also study fiction, drama and poetry and recognize how literature interprets the human condition. Students will improve their own writing skills through writing short responses on literature, editing one another`s work and writing essays about literature. 603-102-MQ LITERARY GENRES | P: 603-101 The main focus of these courses is to study the relationship between form and meaning. The broadest literary genres` (or kinds of literature) are poetry, drama and prose (fiction or nonfiction). There are numerous subgenres within these broad categories. In these courses, the focus may be on either one genre (e.g., short fiction, comedy) or on a variety of genres. Students learn to identify and analyze such structural elements as plot, character, point of view, tone, symbol, diction, rhythm, rhyme, metaphor and how these devices interact to produce meaning. The courses will focus on helping students recognize the patterns that enrich the works, the themes that these patterns suggest, and the relationship between the significant elements of the work and the themes. To pass these courses students are expected to write a 1,000 word essay that meets specific criteria. 603-103-MQ LITERARY THEMES | P: 603-101 These courses examine how literature interprets the human condition. Formal analysis (looking at the organization of a work) provides many insights about a literary work, but we can also ask questions about perspective, attitudes, assumptions and social settings. To this end, in these courses students should learn to recognize a work`s literary themes, cultural context and value system. To pass these courses students are expected to write a 1,000 word essay that meets specific criteria. 603-200-MQ ENGLISH FOR SPECIFIC PROGRAMS | P: 603-101 These courses enable students to communicate in forms appropriate to programs of study. Students learn to recognize appropriate forms and conventions of communication and the organization of various types of discourse. They also learn to develop their own ideas into arguments and theses, and to organize, revise and edit their work. To pass the course students must write a 1000-word essay that meets specific criteria.

MINISTERIAL EXAMINATION OF LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION (Exit Test)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The exit test is a test of competency in the areas of reading, writing, and critical thinking. Students may write the test when they have completed the three BLOCK A courses; they may be registered in the third. Students have four hours in which to select one of three readings: (traditionally two non-fiction, one short-fiction) and write a 750 word critical analysis of it. They may bring a dictionary (English and/or other), but no electronic ones. No Thesaurus. The three categories evaluated are comprehension and insight, organization and expression. The essays are read by two teachers who must agree on two out of three marks and be no further than one apart on the third. Any mark lower than C in any of the three categories results in a failure of the whole test. Within each of the categories are four specific criteria. The John Abbott College Learning Centre, in co-operation with the English Department, runs a number of workshops during the semester to help students prepare for the test. Students who are interested and eligible to write the French Exit Exam should inquire at the Registrar`s Office. An Omnivox survey will be sent to eligible students.

Students who do not pass the exam will not receive their (DEC) Diploma of College Studies.

(CS)

STREAMS

In order to allow students to concentrate their English studies in these areas of interest, a number of courses are identified as belonging in both of these streams.

Cultural Studies stream

Cultural studies examines the complex power relationships (class, gender, race, colonialism) between literature and society. Courses in the profile would begin by examining our assumptions about culture to encourage students to come up with a basic definition of culture. Cultural artefacts will be drawn from literary classics as well as popular culture, such as film, popular music, and television. Later in the profile, students will be introduced to some of the basic theories of cultural and literary studies such as class theory, psychological approaches, gender studies, post-colonialism, queer theory, etc. The underlying premise of the profile is that we may best understand our culture by stepping outside of it and returning to it frequently.

Historical stream

(HS)

The characteristic of courses in the Historical Stream is that the literature in each of the courses is drawn from a particular historical period. The idea is that in taking all four of his/her English courses in this stream, the student will begin to see that literary creation arises within an historical context and that literary movements are sequential and bear a relationship to each other. Historical context is by no means the exclusive concern of any of these courses; it merely serves as the basic organizing principle in courses that explore a full range of stylistic and thematic considerations, in addition to historical context.

C OURSE D ESCRIPTI ONS

Literary Genres

The main focus of these courses is to study the relationship between form and meaning. The broadest literary genres` (or kinds of literature) are poetry, drama and prose (fiction or nonfiction). There are numerous subgenres within these broad categories. In these courses, the focus may be on either one genre (e.g., short fiction, comedy) or on a variety of genres. Students learn to identify and analyze such structural elements as plot, character, point of view, tone, symbol, diction, rhythm, rhyme, metaphor and how these devices interact to produce meaning. The courses will focus on helping students recognize the patterns that enrich the works, the themes that these patterns suggest, and the relationship between the significant elements of the work and the themes. To pass these courses students are expected to write a 1,000 word essay that meets specific criteria. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) AMERICAN GOTHIC | P: 603-101 While the term Gothic` often conjures up images of ruined castles, damsels in distress and supernatural forces, the genre referred to as American Gothic` is an entirely different beast. By examining literature, art and film from the period spanning the early 19th Century to the present, we will examine how American writers and artists strove to create a means through which they could address specifically North American cultural concerns, including issues surrounding national identity, religion, race relations, and the urban environment. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE ARTHURIAN TRADITION | P: 603-101 Students will examine a range of genres featuring stories about King Arthur and his knights. Genres will include Middle English romance, chronicle, poetry by Tennyson, modern novels, and film. Issues to be considered include: values of individuality and community within Arthurian society, ideals of heroism, the formation of identity of knights, the role of combat in defining the individual and the community, and the ethic of chivalry. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE ART OF FICTION | P: 603-101 This course will introduce the student to twentieth-century writers from many different backgrounds and will focus on narrative prose in the form of the short story and the novel. Students will be encouraged to] undertake close textual analysis, both independently and in small groups, in order to familiarize themselves with and reach conclusions about the effects of the elements of fiction. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE BEST OF POPULAR LITERATURE | P: 603-101 Maybe hack writers with their escapist formula plots, unbelievable protagonists, and episodes of gross physical titillation know more about their readers than we like to think. This course will examine, analyze and evaluate the formal characteristics and thematic concerns of commercial bestselling fiction. It will argue, along with psychologist Carl Jung, that literature which is dedicated to telling its readers what they want to hear and which is mostly unconscious of its own values may have quite as much to say about the society that produced it as serious literature. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) BRAVE NEW WORLD | P: 603-101 The fruits of the applied sciences include steam engines, guillotines, Botox, computers and pace-makers. Inventions like these often provoke strong reactions on the street, but also in literature. In this course we will ask the question: What do writers think of the world we have created? Is it scary or pleasant? Civilizing or dehumanizing? All of the texts in this course offer answers to questions like these and raise other considerations about the uses and perhaps abuses of science. In addition to looking at the intersection between human invention and literature, we will also (1) consider the texts as multifaceted works of literature that belong to a larger literary tradition and (2) provide students with the opportunity to improve their writing skills. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE CANADIAN SHORT STORY | P: 603-101 Today`s Canadian short-story writers are much bolder than their literary ancestors. Issues of sexuality and violence and ethnicity, for example, are being treated in frank and disturbing ways, while humour often winks from a footstep away. Apart from provocative content, our writers are ambitiously experimenting with form and technique. This course will survey the best of the new` writers, fitting their work into the Canadian short fiction tradition.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) COMEDY: WHAT`S SO FU NNY? | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course is designed to give students a historical overview of the genre of comedy - from ancient Greece to modern times. Students will learn to recognize the universal as well as the historically and culturally specific features of comedy. Besides the lectures and work on assigned class material, students will be responsible for pursuing their own investigation of the comic in the journal project for which the student will select material. Much attention is given to the writing process: reading critically, brainstorming, outlining, drafting and editing. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) CREATIVE WRITING | P: 603-101 This course will introduce students to literary genres through reading, discussion and writing. The genres predominantly covered will be the personal essay and the short story. Major topics will include plotting, scenes building, character development and the development of theme. Students will have many opportunities to do "creative writing". The weekly two hours of practical work (required for all literary genres courses) may take place in the computer lab. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) CREATIVE WRITING FOR CHILDREN | P: 603-101 Most people`s introduction to stories happens in childhood, through children`s books. Writing for children isn`t as easy as it seems. The work has to be accessible, engaging, and original. In this course, we will examine the genre of children`s literature, from picture books to the young adult novel. The writing assignments will be mostly creative. Students will write their own picture books, as well as the opening chapters of early readers and young adult novels. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) DRAMA: TRAGEDY AND C OMEDY | P: 603-101 Tragedy and comedy are two dramatic genres that portray two contrary visions of human potential, action, and circumstance. In tragedy, human action and conflict seem ruled by an almost perverse logic that leads relentlessly to a shocking and fatal conclusion. Whereas in comedy, surprise rules in a world where conflicts miraculously are resolved and human wishes fulfilled. The course will examine the Ancient Greek tragedy Antigone, the 17th century French comedy Tartuffe, and the early 20th century Czech tragicomedy R.U.R. Throughout the semester we will also look at examples of tragedy, comedy, and tragic-comedy on film. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) DRAMA: TRADING THE B OARDS | P: 603-101 This course deals with drama in two ways: as a literary genre and as a performing art. To this end, we will see, as well as read, a selection of plays, concentrating on plot, character, stage directions, settings and props, and, above all, dramatic dialogue of that vital element which, through tightly controlled language, holds the audience, tells the story, reveals character, and exposes the theme of the play. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) EARLY MODERN DRAMA | P: 603-101 In this course we will study three early modern plays that feature magic, alchemy, witchcraft, and other aspects of the occult. While unified by their witchy and strange content, the plays are characterized by different generic conventions, performance histories, styles of language, and cultural contexts. With the aim of understanding and enjoying different kinds of early modern drama, we will study the language, contemporary relevance, and theatricality of the readings. We will compare each of the assigned plays to a related twentiethcentury film, an exercise which should stimulate some interesting discussion about the continuity and difference between the early modern period and our own. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) EPIC AND ROMANCE | P: 603-101 This course is intended as an introduction to the Epic and the Romance, two forms of literature which have had a major influence on the history of ideas, especially in terms of defining heroic behaviour and the relative roles of men and women in society. Following an introduction to these two genres of literature, students will be introduced to specific examples of epic and romance, beginning with the Greek world of Homer, and moving on the Roman world of Virgil, the Germanic tribal world of Beowulf, the feudal world of Charlemagne, and the Arthurian world of quest and courtly love.

603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE EVOLUTION OF HOR ROR: FROM GOTHIC TO GORE-THICK | P: 603-101 Though a great deal of criticism is often levelled at the genre of Horror, (it is dismissed as un-literary, trashy, and juvenile) it can never be described as static. From its 18th century Gothic beginnings to contemporary works that place emphasis on blood, gore, and scantily clad college students, Horror has always been a medium through which writers and artists can discuss and deal with individual, personal, and societal concerns. Through the ages, and through ever-changing definitions of what is scary`, writers have had to find new methods with which to express the fears of their time. In order to do so, they must choose to either draw upon or reject generic conventions of the past in an attempt to lead readers to a greater understanding of humanity`s deepest conscious and unconscious fears. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) FAERIE & FANTASY | P: 603-101 Dressed in garish book covers, some fantasy literature may be considered formulaic and lowbrow, but this genre has its roots in the oldest and most influential forms of literature of all times: myths, legends, hero tales and fairytales. Loved by young and old alike, these tales have been handed down from parent to child throughout the ages. Moreover, cultural beliefs, values and the most universal themes and hopes of humankind are woven into the fabric of these ancient stories along with the symbols and archetypes of the oral tradition. In this course, students will read literature for all ages, including ancient fairytales of the oral tradition, literary tales, contemporary fantasy and a graphic novel: all stories of faerie . . . that place of imagination and inspiration . . . just beyond the border of our physical reality. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE FAIRY TALE TRADITION | P: 603-101 This course will examine the artistic, cultural, and intellectual appeal of fairy tales. In addition to studying the symbolic structures and the archetypal themes of fairy tales, we will explore how the genre constructs and challenges our understanding of childhood innocence and adult experience. Students will consider how psychology, ideology, and gender continue to exert influence on the ways fairy tales are understood. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE FEMME FATALE: IN FORM AND CONTENT | P: 603-101 The Femme Fatale is a familiar character from myth and legend. She haunts great works of theatre and is an object of fascination for the ancients; she`s there in history and religious books, too, among tales of caution or destruction. Today she can be found breaking hearts and corrupting dreams on film, in a song, in the pages of a novel... you might even have met her in a video game. The Femme Fatale is easily identifiable, eerily familiar, and sexually alluring. This course will examine the archetype of the Femme Fatale: how she grounds the action in adventures and mysteries, how she provides the rationale for morality tales, and how stirs up passion, across genres and through time. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) FICTION: SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE | P: 603-101 Myths, fables, legends and tales are ancient forms of storytelling that engage the imagination and often teach a moral. Out of these shorter, more simplistic forms of fiction grew the modern short story, a genre that is more complex in plot, characterization and theme. The novella is a form that combines the compression of short fiction with the wider scope of the novel. In this course, we will read works of fiction in all these genres: myth, fable, legend, tale, short story, novella, and novel. We will explore the conventions of the various forms and illuminate how the authors produce meaning while entertaining the reader. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE GRAPHIC NOVEL | P: 603-101 This course focuses on the relatively recently identified genre of the graphic novel, or the comic book as serious literature. In surveying a selection of these texts students will explore not only the range of this literary genre, which includes fiction, memoir and non-fiction narratives, but also the distinctive artistic techniques which distinguish the graphic novel form from that of purely textual works. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE HEROIC JOURNEY | P: 603-101 Why are we emotionally and intellectually affected by stories of heroism on TV, in movies, in the news? What does such a fixation say about us? In addressing these questions, this course is intended to introduce students to the myth of the heroic journey as a form of narrative storytelling that boasts a rich literary tradition. By examining the specific features, motifs, and patterns of the myth of the heroic journey, we will look at how this type of storytelling simultaneously constructs and challenges our understanding of what constitutes heroism. Page 186

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE IMAGE MAKERS | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course is designed to teach students how to think, read and write about literature and film as art forms by using film, an in-depth study of one or more literary works and essays about film and literature. The approach will be one that emphasizes formal elements such as action, dialogue, character, imagery, setting and narrative techniques. Parallels between film and other literary genres such as drama, the novel and poetry will be drawn so that the student emerges with an overall concept of what a literary genre is. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) INTRODUCTION TO MIDD LE EASTERN LITERATUR E | P: 603-101 This historical survey course introduces the student to the literature of the Middle-East, predominately from Persian and Arabic traditions (often Islamic), but including works from various countries. The first half of the course examines classical and medieval literature (e.g., Gilgamesh, 1001 Nights, selections from Attar, Ferdowsi, Koran and Bible), while the second half of the term is devoted to modern literature, predominately prose fiction (by noted writers such as Naguib Mahfouz). The works are also selected in order to address specific questions of genre, with its unique history in Middle Eastern literature. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) INTRODUCTION TO POET RY | P: 603-101 This course introduces students to the basic elements of poetry (form, rhythm, rhyme, metaphor, symbol, image, etc.) through the study of selected poems from various eras in English literature, with a particular emphasis on modern works. The course is designed to demystify poetry and help the student enjoy this fundamental form of human expression. Activities include essays, tests, discussions, presentations, web research, etc. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) IRELAND | P: 603-101 The small island of Ireland has long been celebrated for its rich folklore, and for its ability to preserve a strong sense of its Gaelic culture in the face of Norse, Norman, and English invasions and occupations. In this course, we will examine the folklore and literature of Ireland and the influences of Irish history and ancient Gaelic culture on these oral and literary traditions. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) JAPANESE LITERATURE ON FILM | P: 603-101 The purpose of this class is to introduce students to contemporary Japanese literature and film. Students will look at, discuss, and write about the literature and cinema of Japan from the end of World War II to the present. The main goal of the course is to discover the common ground that our respective cultures share. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) JAZZ LITERATURE | P: 603-101 "Jazz Literature" will appeal to lovers of music. A unique genre of literature is emerging out of the changing mix of sounds categorized as "jazz." Its advanced vocabulary has been dismissed as an elitist art form, intellectual music too sophisticated for the average person, only for the college crowd. You have come to the right course! 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE LETTER | P: 603-101 This course is devoted to the form and representation of the letter, which we will explore through selected literary texts and through the composition of original letters. The calendar of readings includes Shakespeare`s play Twelfth Night, a selection of stories and poems where letters have formal or thematic significance, historical letters, and a handbook on 21st-century letter writing. Our historical and literary work should complement the endeavour of crafting and mastering such genres of letter writing as the epistle, the covering letter, the love letter, the email, the letter to the editor, effective and constructive hate mail, and letters to fictional entities. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) LITERARY GENRES | P: 603-101 This course will examine a range of literary texts selected by the teacher. These texts may be from one or more of the following genres: fiction, film, poetry, drama and nonfiction. Students are expected to read texts carefully and to comprehend the author`s use of generic elements, rhetorical techniques, and literary devices.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) LITERARY GENRES: POOR FOLK | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

The course will examine the depiction of poor folk and the bleak or turbulent worlds they live and grow up in. Lacking material resources, the lower and under classes have only their wits, strengths, and sheer luck to rely on as they make their ways through life. Different genres of literature focus on different aspects of the low life and protagonist: for example, the resourceful and/or lucky heroes who escape, the heroes who cannot escape and must simply endure their impoverished world, those who seek personal revenge, those who become political and with others seek social justice, and those who seek innocent scapegoats to pay for their misery. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE LITERATURE | P: 603-101 Writers have at their disposal various ways of representing the world in which we live: they may report it as faithfully as possible, remaining always within the limits of human perception; they may stretch its laws of probability, preferring imagination over accuracy; or they may playfully distort it, allowing us to view the familiar world in an unfamiliar light. In this course, we will study the conventions that distinguish three major modes of literary representation: realism, romance, and irony. In addition to exploring the formal elements of each mode, we will consider how each mode lends itself to particular thematic concerns. Finally, we will reflect on the unique place and function of each mode within human society and culture. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE MIDDLE AGES AND RENAISSANCE | P: 603-101 This course will focus on different types or genres of literature (poetry, drama, essays, epic and romance, for instance) inasmuch as they reflect the concerns of these two historical periods. We will deal with selections which reflect the other worldly concerns of the Middle Ages with its emphasis on this life as a preparation for the next, as compared to others which reflect the humanistic, this worldly concerns of the Renaissance era with its emphasis on the perfectibility of humans and human society. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) MULTICULTURAL SHORT STORIES FROM CANADA AND THE US | P: 603-101 This course is designed to introduce students to elements of fiction within a very contemporary, fairly dominant, and particularly North-American genre: multicultural literature. Through the study of short stories from both sides of the border, similarities and differences in the very core of the concept of multiculturalism will be revealed. In engaging with these literary texts students are expected to acquire techniques of research, note taking, outlining and essay writing with a clarity of expression and a coherence of thought. By the end of the course, students will have acquired not only a certain familiarity with a major North-American form of literature, but also a better appreciation of it. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE PASTORAL MODE | P: 603-101 What is pastoral literature? Some readers identify texts which feature shepherds dallying in the sheepcote as pastoral. Other readers define pastoral more broadly as any fiction which idealizes and romanticizes rural life or the natural world. Through rigorous engagement with a selection of literary texts and through our own experience of rural, urban, and suburban space, we will attempt to form our own robust definition of pastoral. We will also consider how pastoral is significant in other areas of representation such as advertising and the names of suburbs (consider the nearby Cedar Park or Pine Beach). The literary texts on the calendar of readings include commonly anthologized examples of pastoral poetry, stories with complexly rural or suburban settings, and the perhaps mock-pastoral play by William Shakespeare, As You Like It. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) ROMANTIC TRADITION: WESTERNS, FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION | P: 603-101 Out of the mists of mythology comes the romantic tradition of storytelling. Astride a muscular steed the gleaming knight hurtles against the dragon, his bloody lance carrying him through winds of flame. The knight dismounts on the main street of a dusty town, the burning sun at his back, deadly metal in his hand. With a flash reminiscent of lightning, the air shatters and the knight travels on, past the setting sun. Stars crown him, their cold light glistening on his helm and he drifts from the safety of his spacecraft....

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) SHAKESPEARE FOR OUR TIME | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

In this course, we will focus on Shakespeare`s use of comedy and tragedy to engage with compelling social and psychological issues in his time and ours. We will use recent critical approaches to explore Shakespeare`s complex representations of human identity and experience, with an emphasis on topics like gender, sexuality, male-female relationships, race, racism and class. These issues were as interesting and problematic to Shakespeare and his audience as they are to us 21st century postmoderns, and allow us to see connections and differences between Shakespeare`s culture and ours. We will emphasize the close reading and viewing of individual plays so that ycan understand and come to enjoy Shakespeare`s language, theatricality and themes. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) SHAKESPEAREAN COMEDY | P: 603-101 This course is designed to give students an overview of Shakespeare`s comedy through the study of an early, middle and late comedy. Students will learn to recognize the common features and distinctions in Shakespeare`s comedies, noting both the development and ultimate consistency of Shakespeare`s comic vision. Much attention is given to the reading and writing processes: reading critically, brainstorming, outlining, drafting and editing. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) SHAKESPEAREAN DRAMA | P: 603-101 In this course we examine two or three key plays by William Shakespeare. Although a considerable amount of history gets worked into the course, the primary focus will be on the formal properties of Shakespeare`s poetry, prose and, more generally, his dramas. Readings will be accompanied with viewings of the plays in production. Some of the plays we have read recently: Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, The Winter's Tale et al. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) SHORT FICTION | P: 603-101 This course is an introduction to the short story in which emphasis is placed on the reader`s critical response and the articulation of that response. Consideration will be given to tradition and innovation in the genre and to the author`s marshalling of the story`s components to achieve dramatic and subtle effects. Readings are drawn from the works of a wide variety of authors. Classes comprise some lecture on and considerable discussion of the assigned readings. Written assignments provide practice in literary analysis and in the expression of interpretive commentary on readings. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE SHORT STORY | P: 603-101 Literary Genres: The Short Story is a post-entry level course in the A-block component of English with a special emphasis on understanding the formal aspects of the short story. The course will allow students to enjoy reading a number of short stories by D.H. Lawrence and E. Hemingway, discuss these in their historical and literary contexts, and examine why they are effective (or otherwise). The objective is to enable students to apply a critical approach to literary genres. Students will learn to recognize literary genres and conventions. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) SPECTACULAR DRAMA | P: 603-101 This course introduces students to the genre of traditional drama as performance art. Through reading, hearing, seeing, and even performing scenes from plays, students will gain a fuller appreciation of the tremendous power of plays to shape meaning and transform society. By reading and watching six plays - from Greek comedy to American tragedy, including those by Sophocles, Shakespeare, Ibsen, Shaw and Williams ­ students will become more perceptive and critical theatre-goers. A major assumption, as well as the goal of this course, is the notion that learning about, watching, and participating in the dramatic arts can be enjoyable as well as educational. The focus of the course will be on drama as it is performed, so students should be prepared to participate, not only as critics, but as readers and performers as well. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE STUDY OF POETRY | P: 603-101 This course aims to introduce students to a broad range of poetry, spanning several historical periods and poetic genres. We will focus on developing skills in close reading while learning the characteristics specific to particular types of poetry. Students will learn to identify and work with key elements in the criticism of poetry, such as tone, irony, paradox, and ambiguity.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) TEEN SPIRIT | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

Young adult fiction is a hot new genre on the literary market. Focusing on the lives of adolescents, these books cover a gamut of themes: drugs, war, love, suicide, music. In this course, we will explore the genre. What makes it so successful? How do authors combine strong story telling techniques with accessible but interesting language to lure young readers? How do authors use form, voice and metaphor in innovative ways? Students will perform creative as well as academic writing in this course. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THEATRE OF THE ABSUR D | P: 603-101 Theatre of the Absurd presents a vision of a bizarre and illogical world that is both deeply tragic and darkly comic. By combining elements from surrealist art, existential philosophy, and black humour, absurdist plays make audiences sad to the point of despair while also making them roar with laughter. In this course we will study plays and films that both lament and laugh at life`s absurdities. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THEATRE WORKSHOP: ENGLISH | P: 603-101 Students will read a variety of plays, examining the basic elements of the dramatic genre, both as literature and as theatrical event. The aim is to develop an appreciation of drama though individual and collaborative activities, such as class discussion, personal journals, theatrical presentations, as well as planning and writing a critical analysis. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE TWENTIETH CENTUR Y NORTH AMERICAN NOV EL | P: 603-101 The past 100 years have been a period of tremendous controversy and upheaval all over the world. In this course, students will read a number of interpretations of this era written by North American novelists. Twentieth century versions of universal themes such as love, death, and the changing role of science and technology will be investigated. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE TWENTIETH CENTUR Y NOVEL | P: 603-101 The calamitous and dazzling 20th century was an age of movement and change on a massive scale, one which bore the miraculous fruit of human invention and the horrors of human pride. The course will examine three books written after the two World Wars and on the peripheries of the European, Soviet and American empires, with an emphasis on theme (the desire of men and women to break from history, to seek truth and happiness) and style. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) VICTORIAN GOTHIC | P: 603-101 This course focuses on the Victorian Gothic, grouping texts thematically into three sections that represent specific societal anxieties: the fears raised by the rapid pace of technological and scientific change, the preoccupation with the borders of sexuality and the self, and the obsession with death. Students who want to write a ghost story may attempt this oral form of storytelling at the end of the course. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) THE WORDSMITH: INTRO DUCTION TO SHORT FICTION | P: 603-101 This course will introduce the student to the work of twentieth century writers. The course will encourage students to formulate their response to the subtle and varied complexity of this literary genre. The class will use discussion and written assignments to interpret their own responses to the readings. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) WRITING THE SELF | P: 603-101 Writing the Self is an introduction to life writing. Through a consideration of different forms of autobiographies in their historical and cultural contexts, this course will challenge you to consider the problems inherent in writing the self`. It will equip you to both analyze autobiographical texts as well as produce autobiographical works of your own. 603-102-MQ (2.2.3) WRITING TUTORS | P: 603-101 This course is open to students who have received grades of 85% or more in English. Students will have the opportunity to tutor for two hours of their class time per week and study English at an enriched level.

Literary Themes

These courses examine how literature interprets the human condition. Formal analysis (looking at the organization of a work) provides many insights about a literary work, but we can also ask questions about perspective, attitudes, assumptions and social settings. To this end, in these courses students should learn to recognize a work`s literary themes, cultural context and value system. To pass these courses students are expected to write a 1,000 word essay that meets specific criteria. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) | P: 603-101 THE BELLE EPOQUE IN AUSTRO-HUNGARY. LITERATURE IN ITS SOCIO-CULTURAL CONTEXT Studying the exquisitely rich literature of turn-of-the-century Central Europe is a real adventure in complexity. The first officially multicultural state in the world, Austro-Hungary, created in the same year as the Canadian Confederation, was the birth place of analytical philosophy, Freudian psychology, photojournalism, and many other new disciplines of learning. Art and literature flourished amidst the many tongues despite an archaically conservative imperial and royal aristocracy that ruled with the help of informers and a Kafkaesque bureaucracy with an endless paper trail. This course will examine the extent to which literature reflects, bends, shapes, in short, is symbiotically linked to the socio-cultural context within which it is conceived, performed, and ultimately consumed. It will also serve as a cultural foundation course for an eye-opening field trip to Vienna and Budapest, organized as part of an academic exchange within the framework of another intersession course (603-200 ­ Culture in Action: On the Trail of Cultural Icons in Austro-Hungary). 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) BEYOND REASON | P: 603-101 If there is no God, and if there are no absolute values, twentieth-century humans may either seek for an earlier natural self of intuitive awareness or retreat in bewilderment and confusion, alienated from the world around them. Beginning with the short story and the novel, we will be reading a variety of texts that call into question the power of reason as a means of understanding our world. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) CANADIAN CROSSINGS | P: 603-101 Crossings can be real or metaphorical. They can occur between countries, cultures, religions or even states of mind. Using contemporary Canadian literature, we will explore the theme of crossings. We will look closely at the characters involved in the crossings and at how the experiences precipitate a change of lifestyles, perspectives and values. We will explore whether the effects of the crossings are temporary or permanent. What is gained and what is lost? Students will learn a lot about Canada in this course. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) CANADIAN LITERATURE | P: 603-101 In this course, students will read selected works of Canadian literature in various genres and learn to distinguish and discuss critically the myths and techniques characteristically employed in Canadian writing. The thematic focus is, then, issues of cultural and national identity and the pedagogic focus is on textual analysis, interpretation and writing skills. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) CHILDREN`S LITERATURE: REPRESENTATIONS O F NATURE | P: 603-101 This course explores children`s literature with a special focus on representations of nature, including animals, wilderness, land, trees, and water. We discuss children`s interactions with the natural world. We study the development of nature-consciousness, using both picture books and chapter books. Western and indigenous world-views are compared. Central to the course is an in-depth reading of three books for children and young adults that focus on animals, the natural world and the cycles of the seasons, death and rebirth. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) COLLAPSE: SHAKESPEAR EAN TRAGEDY | P: 603-101 This course concentrates on Shakespearean tragedy, especially as this unique and powerful art form dramatizes ambition, moral conflict, and personal collapse. Students will also be introduced to the life and times and reasoning of Shakespeare, particularly to those aspects of his experience and beliefs (insofar as we know them) which have influenced the language and characters of his greatest plays, the tragedies. Video and/or film productions of each play studied will be viewed and discussed in class.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) CONTEMPORARY FICTION | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

The course will examine two novels and some short stories that have as a theme people`s struggles to find love and a place within their societies. Texts by three to four writers will be chosen from the following: Khaled Hosseini, Jonathan Coe, J.M. Coetzee, Melissa Bank, and Margaret Atwood. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) CONTEMPORARY JAPANESE LITERATURE | P: 603-101 This course examines literary themes through the study of post World War II Japanese Literature. We will look at such themes as the human cost of war, the evolution of the status of women, isolation and loneliness, alienation and identity in modern society, the avant-garde. The class will explore these themes through short stories novels, and films. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) COYOTE DREAMS: STORIES BY NATIVE CANADIAN AND AMERICAN WRITERS | P: 603-101 The course explores a few examples of stories by Native writers in order to look more closely at the place of mythology in native storytelling and its role as a source of spiritual strength. Through the study of original myths as well as stories by contemporary writers, such as Louise Erdrich, Thomas King and Leslie Marmon Silko, students will learn about the history and present-day realities of Aboriginal peoples of North America. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) DUST AND THE WARDROB E | P: 603-101 C. S. Lewis` Chronicles of Narnia are among the bestselling book series of all times. Philip Pullman`s Dark Materials is also a bestselling, fantasy trilogy. Though Lewis and Pullman employ similar literary techniques, they present opposing world views: one Christian, one atheist. Despite this disagreement, their works are imbued with themes that touch on heroism, morality, identity, love, sacrifice, sin, redemption, justice, oppression, forgiveness, suffering, transformation, death, consciousness, time, dimensions, and the origin of life. In fact, these allegories are examples of the ancient and powerful marriage between religious doctrine and literary appeal. Students will consider how these stories reflect the socio-cultural and religious biases of the authors and why they are both popular in our postmodern society. Do the religious symbols, metaphors, allusions and allegories inherent to these stories enrich or impede their quality and appeal? 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) EARLY MODERN DRAMA A ND THE OCCULT | P: 603-101 This course is devoted to three early modern plays that feature magic, alchemy, witchcraft, and other aspects of the occult. While unified by their witchy and strange content, the plays are characterized by different generic conventions, performance histories, styles of language, and cultural contexts. With the aim of understanding and enjoying different kinds of early modern drama, we will study the language, contemporary relevance, and theatricality of the readings. We will compare each of the assigned plays to a related twentiethcentury film, an exercise which should stimulate some interesting discussion about the continuity and difference between the early modern period and our own. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) EROS AND POLIS (LOVE AND THE CITY) | P: 603-101 In this course, we will be looking at texts which deal with the perennial conflict between love and socialpolitical ideas, or between the personal and the public realms. The reading list includes a classical Greek tragedy, a play by Shakespeare, a modern play and novel. Students will engage in a number of critical projects, including essay writing (drafting and editing), presentations, group discussions, and short writing exercises (e.g., short answer questions) in order to gain an understanding of the various elements of literature and the critical interpretation of literature, as well as to improve their writing skills. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) FOLKLORE | P: 603-101 This course focuses on the traditional stories and music of a variety of cultures, and the relevance of these traditions to postmodern society. We will consider widespread and culturally specific folkloric motifs; the political, religious, and moral implications of folkloric stories; and the difficulties of preserving oral traditions in the face of increased literacy and globalization.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) FOOD FOR THOUGHT | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

Students of this course will explore the thematic and metaphorical use of food in literature. Food, or its absence, has been an effective tool to express the significance of relationships, cultural history, family tradition, women`s issues, political dissent, and personal memory. By studying a variety of authors and their food literature, students will discover how food can serve as an important theme in creative expression. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) IN SEARCH OF SELF | P: 603-101 This course examines the central theme of self discovery. Students will study novels and short stories in which the characters seek to answer questions about who they are, who they will become and how they can adapt to society without sacrificing their own individuality. The course content focuses on the search for identity during the different stages of life, beginning with childhood and ending with old age. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) INTO THE WEST | P: 603-101 The idea of the West has long gripped the American imagination with the hope that there, somewhere beyond the western horizon, one might finally escape the various falsehoods of history and culture to become, if not free, then at least real. In this course we will attempt to understand some of the different ways that writers have contributed to or commented on the image of the West as an enduring utopian ideal. Along the way we will reflect on how the Western`s imaginary landscape has served as a ground on which to stage--sometimes to challenge, sometimes to reaffirm-- dominant ideas about individualism, capitalism, progress, nature, and gender--in short, ideas about America itself. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) INTRODUCTION TO DRAM A | P: 603-101 We will study several important dramatic works which address themes crucial to the mood and experience of the mid-twentieth century; selected playwrights may include such significant figures as Eliot, Auden and Isherwood, Brecht, Beckett and Pinter. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) INTRODUCTION TO JOURNALISM | P: 603-101 This course will focus on news reporting in the print media ­ mainly mass circulation newspapers. We will establish what a news story is and will learn the skills necessary to write effective news stories. This will involve writing effective leads, learning to ask the right questions, covering a meeting, speech, or press conference, writing a Streeter, conducting an interview, writing a profile, writing a play review from notes after attending a live performance, writing a news story, doing effective research, learning how to peer-edit, among other journalistic skills. There will be lectures, tutorials, discussions, interactive Internet exercises, speeches, library exercises and guest lecturers. The prevailing teaching style is learning by doing: classes will be hands-on and interactive: students must be prepared to participate. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) LITERATURE AND OTHER ARTS: MODERNITY | P: 603-101 This third English course offered to the Arts and Sciences students will further the consideration of the connections between literary works and the fields of philosophy and science, but especially seek to illuminate the connections between literature and other forms of human expression, such as the fine arts, music, opera, and film. We will examine material drawn from the nineteenth century to the present, focusing on writers` growing consciousness of Self and Others, and of the natural and human worlds. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) LOSS AND DISCOVERY | P: 603-101 Students will read from a selection of stories, essays, poetry, and a novel, which all deal in some way with the theme of loss and discovery--loss, in the sense of leaving something irretrievably behind; discovery, in the sense of gaining new and transformative knowledge. We will look at various issues that arise in the texts as they relate to our course theme: the nature and importance of rites of passage, gender differences in the process, responses to authority, the relevance of love and death. The course will also develop students` critical skills for interpreting and writing about literature.

Page 193

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) LOVE AND DEATH | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course examines women`s and men`s views of themselves and their world, exploring the concerns that emerge as universal themes in world literature: innocence and experience, love and hate, conformity and rebellion, aging and death. Our aim is to establish texts not as isolated achievements, but as belonging within a world context, connected across the boundaries of historical period and geographical border. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) LOVE IN SHAKESPEARE | P: 603-101 This course provides students with an overview of Shakespeare`s dramatic and poetic art through the study of the theme of love in his poetry and his comic and tragic drama. Thus, while focusing on Shakespeare`s complex treatment of the idea of love, students will also learn to recognize generic distinctions among poetry and drama, as well as comedy and tragedy. Much attention is given to the reading and writing processes: reading critically, brainstorming, outlining, drafting and editing. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THE MARITIME MUSE | P: 603-101 The Maritime Provinces of Canada conjure up many romantic and scenic images, from the red sandy beaches of charming Prince Edward Island to the wild rocky coastal shores of Newfoundland. The people are thought of as friendly, down-home charmers. While all these impressions hold a great deal of truth, there is another side to life in Atlantic Canada. It is a side that is a little less picture-perfect, a little seedier than the postcard depictions of this interesting part of the country. In this course we will read the works of several writers to learn about the ways of life, values, hardships, and triumphs of life in Atlantic Canada. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) MONSTER MAKING: TALE S OF HORROR | P: 603-101 H.P. Lovecraft once said that the oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. Yet, is the unknown really intangible or is it simply that which our society deems taboo, a set of fears that swirl around such unspeakable topics as perverse sexuality, mortality, loneliness or even technology out of control? Rather than speaking directly about these issues, we choose to create monsters that embody these fears, and who symbolically function as emblems of what we will become if we trespass into the realm of the forbidden. Horror fiction, in its earliest days, was known by its props and settings, but with Edgar Allan Poe in the 1830s and 40s, it begins to shift away from the exterior trappings to emphasize the psyche of the monster. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THE MONSTROUS | P: 603-101 Students will examine a range of early English literature featuring stories about conflicts between heroes and monsters. Works will include the Old English classic Beowulf the Irish classic The Tain, as well as other stories from Old Norse saga, in translation. Students will explore the way that these stories about conflicts between representatives of a society and a monstrous other` express, shape, and challenge a society`s values. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) MUSIC IN LITERATURE | P: 603-101 "Music in Literature" examines the work of musicians who have authored books using college-level English. The literary legacy of composers and songwriters will be analyzed in counterpoint with their music. This course will also reveal popular Canadian composers and poets who have achieved international acclaim, yet who remain unknown to Canadian readers and listeners. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) NEOCLASSICAL/ROMANTI C THEMES | P: 603-101 This course will deal with selections which reflect the concerns and themes of two historical periods in literature: the Enlightenment, with its emphasis on the importance of order and a rational approach to life, followed by the Romantic period, with its emphasis on the importance of the individual`s feelings and emotions, and on the power of imagination.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THE POETICS OF HIP HOP | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course is devoted to the rhythm, meter, figurative language, historical context, mass culture, and subculture of hip hop music. While the cultural movement of hip hop includes other arts such as breakdancing and graffiti, we will focus on the poetry of hip hop music, namely in the music`s wordplay, patterns of stress, and thematic meaning. To illustrate the course`s key prosodic and figurative concepts, we will compare hip hop poetry to other verse forms. Ideally, our comparative approach to poetry should enhance our knowledge of both hip hop and other poetic traditions. The skills taught in this course will include scanning and listening for patterns of stress, relating texts and contexts in an analytically productive way, learning how to identify and analyse the themes of an individual work or genre, and developing a practice of close reading and listening. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) PRACTICAL ETHICS IN SHAKESPEARE | P: 603-101 Although Shakespeare is not an ethical theorist, his insight into personal and interpersonal conflict is central to his tragedies. In this course we will examine the challenging ethical dilemmas dramatized in two of them. We will examine some of the conflicting motives and desires that we all encounter. We will then consider the consequences, both to ourselves and others, of the decisions we make. Most importantly, we will learn to think in terms of "otherness" ­ how to consider our actions as part of a social network where all actions necessarily affect others. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) QUEBECOIS FOLKLORE | P: 603-101 This course considers the patrimonial traditions of French-Canadians in Québec, including folkloric stories, music, dance, and cuisine. We will examine recurring trends in folkloric stories, the manner in which traditions are preserved and disseminated in the postmodern era, and the variety of international influences which have contributed to the unique cultural heritage of our province. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THE ROMANTIC IMAGINA TION | P: 603-101 Reason versus the imagination; childhood innocence and adult experience; individualism and social conformity; the primacy of nature; and the obsessive attraction with the dark side--these are some of the themes that have defined the romantic revolution of the 18-19th centuries. In examining the development of a Romantic aesthetic and attitude in poetry, fiction, the visual arts, and music, we will question the cultural relevance of the romantic imagination upon our lives today. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) SCOTS: KILTS, CASTLES AND CLANS | P: 603-101 The myths and legends of Scotland are rich and varied, offering intriguing tales of saints and kings, heroes and villains, magicians and monsters, giants and ghosts, foul deeds and frightening fiends, told against a dramatic backdrop of stern castles, sinister caves, craggy peaks and swirling mists. In this course, through literature spanning several centuries, reflecting the challenges, triumphs and defeats which the Nation has endured, the story of Scotland unfolds. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) SHAKESPEARE AND SOCIETY| P: 603-101 Shakespeare`s plays are open to a wide range of interpretations and have been performed in many different ways. Just as Shakespeare lets his characters express a wide range of emotions, ideas and arguments, he invites his readers to develop their own interpretations of his themes. Students will learn to read Shakespeare`s language with greater comprehension and ease, to interpret and analyze key themes in the plays, and to respond as audiences to film performances and adaptations. Students should expect to read a tragedy and a comedy, to study an Act of a play a week, to answer study questions on a regular basis, and to write two essays. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) SHAKESPEARE AT THE M OVIES | P: 603-101 Shakespeare is the world`s most popular playwright. Today, his plays are reaching new audiences through the medium of film. But to what extent are these transplants from stage to screen successful? The class will study two of Shakespeare`s plays in depth. Students will develop a firm grasp of the text as they explore its treatment in film.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) SHAKESPEAREAN FAMILIES | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course examines Shakespeare`s dramatization of family relations in two or three plays. We will be especially interested in studying the conflicts and renegotiations that take place between family members (and sometimes friends) as children pass into adulthood. Also important will be romantic love, and the tension it creates with other relationships. Readings will be supplemented with viewings of the plays in performance. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) SURVEY OF POETRY | P: 603-101 This course will provide a thematic survey of poetry. The first two-thirds of the course will cover modern poetry. In the last third we will study a play by Shakespeare. Students will have the opportunity to write their own poetry if they wish; however, "creative" work will not be a requirement. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) TAINTED LOVE | P: 603-101 Is love a blissful experience that makes us forget all our troubles, or is love an emotional snake-pit that conceals its true nature until it has us trapped within its snaky coils? The aim of this course is to examine how writers from different eras and cultures explore love in order to account for the good, the bad and the ugly sides of one of the emotions central to our very existence. Specifically, we will focus on the ways in which writers use, abuse, adhere to, or ignore traditional notions of love in an attempt to represent forms of love that are often viewed as untraditional, socially unacceptable or tainted`. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) TECHNOLOGY AND HUMAN NATURE IN STORIES AB OUT THE FUTURE | P: 603-101 Open the science section of any newspaper or watch the Discovery Channel these days, and there`ll be stories about advances in genetic engineering, or reviews of the latest smart phone and various GPS enhanced navigational tools. You might come across a story about hearing aids and corneal implants that access the Net via Bluetooth, or stumble upon the latest dust-up over drugs (legal or illegal) designed to sharpen the mind or improve the physical performance of athletes. Do science and technology now drive human evolution? This course studies the complex relationship between the human body, human culture and human technology as it is explored in literature, film, and games. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THEATRE WORKSHOP: ENGLISH | P: 603-101 This course is ideal for students studying or just plain interested in theatre (Theatre Workshop students, Professional Theatre students, scientists who really want to go on the stage...) The all-round, all-in-one, magic theatre course for all horses. Designed to meet the requirements of students in the Professional Theatre Program and those enrolled in the Theatre Workshop, Theatre English accommodates students in all stages of the CEGEP English curriculum. All students work together on theatrical projects, while doing other assignments specific to their college level. In Theatre English, students can expect to develop facility in reading, watching and interpreting a variety of texts (dramatic, fictional, poetic, and cinematic) as well as improving written and oral expression in English. The Final Showcase offers an opportunity for dramatic writing to students in the Playwright Stream and group performance to all participants. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THEMES IN LITERATURE | P: 603-101 This course will examine the themes and ideas in a range of literary texts selected by the teacher. These texts may be from one or more of the following genres: fiction, film, poetry, drama and nonfiction. Students are expected to read the texts carefully and to comprehend the themes and ideas being developed by the author through the use of generic elements, rhetorical techniques and literary devices. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THEMES IN MODERN POE TRY | P: 603-101 In this course students will study a selection of representative poems and poets of the modern period. The objective of the course is to understand modernist poetics and the various developments in poetry in our times in order to help students appreciate contemporary verse, de-mystifying the whole genre and assumptions about the inscrutability of poetry.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THE TRADITION OF TRAVEL | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

The ancients travelled ­ some told stories of their mythic ancestors` journeys ­ and so do we. This urge to travel, to describe what one sees and feels, has animated men and women of all cultures and eras. This course surveys the tradition of travel in various eras and literary genres, and explores how travel works as metaphor: for curiosity, escape, idealized self-renewal, the pursuit of self-knowledge, and pleasure. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) TRAUMA AND WITNESS | P: 603-101 This course will further develop the skills essential for effective reading and writing about literature though the critical, analytical study of an array of texts which explore the interrelated themes of trauma and witness. Students will explore the treatment of these themes across an array of fiction and non-fiction genres including memoir, film, drama, novel, graphic novel and journalism, and will consider the diverse aspects of these themes as well as the various ethical facets and implications of both theme and genre choice. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) THE UNIVERSE STORY | P: 603-101 Using literature, this course focuses on two contemporary approaches to the universe story or, in other words, the scientific account of evolution from the Big Bang through human evolution. The course explores how one science-based vision of the story leads to the ongoing destruction of the Earth community (plants, animals, humans) and how the other science-based vision has the potential to help the Earth community flourish. The focus of the course will be on the second positive vision and its heroes, themes, and metaphors as seen in contemporary literature. One novel, short stories, myths, fairy tales, essays, and poems are included. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) WAR ALL THE TIME | P: 603-101 War has always been with us, and writers have described the horror--sometimes adding to it. War is a common theme in poetry, fiction, memoirs, diaries, drama: writers have tuned every genre to its call. This course explores how writers have reacted to war (from ancient to modern times); how genre shapes the writer's response; how war literature is always mythic. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) WORLD LITERATURE III: THE ENLIGHTENMENT AND THE ROMANTIC ERA | P: 603-101 This course is the third in the sequence of four required Liberal Arts Program English courses. It comprises the study of a selection of texts from the British and European eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The course explores the prevailing ideas and themes associated with the neo-classical Enlightenment and with the Romantic revolution. It examines the images and literary techniques which embody the ideas and themes. The course`s approach emphasizes close examination of texts, the reader`s critical response to the texts and the articulation of that response. Classes comprise some lectures on and considerable discussion of the assigned readings. Written assignments provide practice in literary analysis and in the expression of interpretive commentary on readings. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) WORLD WIDE WOMEN | P: 603-101 The life experiences of women around the world are vast and varied. Whether women are living under the veil of Islam, drawing water from wells in Africa, or climbing corporate ladders in the west, what unites women around the world is more than just biology. There are mental and social connections as well. We will take a literary trip around the world to hear the voices of women. What work do women do; what types of relationships do women have with men and with each other; what conflicts and triumphs do women experience; how do religion, social class, and gender shape women`s lives? These are some of the questions we will seek to answer. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) WRITERS FROM THE OTH ER EUROPE | P: 603-101 This course introduces students to Eastern and Central European writers. We look at differences in writing style and especially genre: short fiction, novella, novel, essays, poetry, drawings, film. We examine how writers in these genres have reacted to the last century, specifically war and exile. A black-humoured sensibility is given special attention. 603-103-MQ (2.2.3) WRITING TUTORS | P: 603-101 This course is open to students who have received grades of 85% or more in English. Students will have the opportunity to tutor for two hours of their class time per week and study English at an enriched level. Page 197

English for Specific Programs

These courses enable students to communicate in forms appropriate to programs of study. Students learn to recognize appropriate forms and conventions of communication and the organization of various types of discourse. They also learn to develop their own ideas into arguments and theses, and to organize, revise and edit their work. To pass the course students must write a 1000-word essay that meets specific criteria. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) ADAPTING STORIES | P: 603-101 Designed for students with an interest in literature, theatre, marketing, anthropology, creative writing, interactive media, or film-making, this course focuses on how stories work across cultures, through time, and in different media. Students are encouraged to explore where issues of medium and message intersect, as we examine at least two stories that have been adapted across media lines (i.e. from fiction to film, film to stage, biography to television series, myth to game, or poetry to song). 603-200-AB (2.2.2) AMERICAN DREAMS/REAL ITIES | P: 603-101 The American Dream is an elastic concept that has had many definitions. The conservative American Dream emphasizes the rags to riches` myth of limitless economic opportunity whereas the liberal version emphasizes the promise of equal rights for all Americans. Drawing on essays, photographs, and films about the American Dream, we will work towards an understanding of one of the central myths of contemporary American culture. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) ARGUMENT AND PERSUAS ION | P: 603-101 In this advanced course in reading and writing, students will hone skills in reading critically and communicating effectively. In studying the strategies of argumentation and persuasion, students will become more conscious of the principles and techniques for developing ideas and, by means of an appreciation of the rhetoric of argument, sharpen analytical skills and enhance their power to communicate clearly and persuasively. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) BERLIN: LITERATURE-CULTURE-HISTORY | P: 603-101 Berlin. One of the great centres of the world, this city is a nexus of literary, cultural and historical significance. From the heart of this often troubled city have come works of literature that have had a profound effect on the discourse of the rest of the world, and in this city are gathered treasures of human culture and history spanning millennia. This course is available as a travel option (which includes visiting Berlin) and a regular course option. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) CANADIAN CULTURE | P: 603-101 What does it mean to be Canadian? Is it possible or even desirable to express and define ourselves as such given the country`s size and spread, its history of conflict among the Native, French and English populations, the current multicultural mix of our cities, and our intimate links to a country which is not only the world`s superpower but whose culture dominates our own? Over the semester we will address these questions by reading a variety of literary and expository texts, and work towards clarifying our own responses to them. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) CHANGING CLIMATES | P: 603-101 There have always been individuals critical of the Western world`s habits of careless consumption, and who see the damage to our environment as too high a price to pay for economic prosperity. However, as evidence of climate change accumulates, a conviction is growing among many - including scientists, people in the Humanities, business people and politicians - that our way of life, or business as usual, is unsustainable, and that actions must be taken to change our habits and our technologies. We will address the crisis by reading and writing on a variety of expository texts - some on the histories of past ecological breakdowns, and many on climate change specifically - and develop a response to the most pressing problem of our time. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) COMING OF AGE | P: 603-101 Maturity is a bitter disappointment, Kurt Vonnegut has said. The mature civilizations of Europe and the ancient cultures of Asia have tended to see American idealism and energy as naive, even childish. A story about the 20th century Chinese leader, Mao Tse-tung, might help put this issue in perspective. Reportedly, Mao was asked his opinion in the 1940s regarding the most important result of the French Revolution, which took place in 1789. It`s too soon to know, was his answer. What does it mean to grow up as an individual in a country as young as Canada? How is it different from coming of age in previous times and/or in different countries of the world? We will read and discuss books in this course which focus on such questions. Page 198

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-200-AB (2.2.2) COMMUNICATION AND CO MMUNITY: VETERAN`S H OSPITAL | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

Communication and Community is a practical course based on fieldwork. It comprises weekly 4-hour fieldwork sessions with veterans residing at Ste-Anne's Hospital who have cognitive impairment and/or other disorders. The course provides an opportunity for participants to establish a relationship in a hospital setting with persons much older. These relationships will be the subject of a developmental journal and a case-presentation. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) COMMUNITY | P: 603-101 Using literature, this course focuses on two contemporary approaches to the scientific account of evolution, with one science-based vision leading to the ongoing destruction of the Earth community (plants, animals, humans) and with the other science-based vision having the potential to help the Earth community flourish. The focus of the course will be on the second positive vision and its new kinds of heroes as seen in contemporary literature. One novel, short stories, myths, fairy tales, essays and poems are included. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) DOCUMENTING BARBARIS M: GENOCIDE LITERATU RE | P: 603-101 Our focus is on comparative forms of discourse used in the representation of the Armenian, Jewish, and Rwandan genocides. After placing these genocidal events in their proper historical, ideological, and social contexts, we explore the ethical challenges inherent in the act of documenting historical memory through autobiography, fiction, film, the graphic novel, journalism, nonfiction, poetry, and the visual arts. By building an informed awareness of the impact of genocide upon our individual and collective memories, we aim to explore constructive, critical, and responsible ways of bearing witness to historical atrocity. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) ENGLISH DBW: ENGLISH FOR PROGRAMS | P: 603-101 This course will examine themes in a range of texts selected by the teacher. These texts may be from one or more forms of discourse appropriate to given fields of study. Students are expected to read the texts carefully, to comprehend the themes and ideas being developed by the author, and to respond orally and in writing to the discursive frameworks presented in the course. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) THE FRAGILE MIND | P: 603-101 In this course we will examine texts in which the protagonist has been diagnosed with a mental illness and has received treatment for that disorder. Each of the texts deals with a different kind of psychosis and provides insight into the patient`s experience both with illness and with therapy. In addition to reading fictional and biographical accounts, students will be encouraged to investigate the psychological literature, to assess the implications of mental illness as a social construct and to develop communication strategies appropriate to their own field of study. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) GREEN CITIES | P: 603-101 This course is designed to help students acquire techniques of research and essay writing by considering pressing issues within the greatest challenge of our century: human cohabitation with nature, more specifically, the need for environmental consciousness. Indeed, planetary overpopulation is fuelling an unprecedented urban sprawl, which is eating up green spaces at an alarming rate. Through the study of various aspects of this dilemma from an architectural, scientific, sociological, geographical, and cultural point of view, we will try to identify solutions that may if not reverse the trend but at least diminish the threat to our survival as inhabitants of one and the same planet. Along with this preoccupation we will also strive to master the technical writing aspects of the course, as described above. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) THE HOLOCAUST | P: 603-101 This course explores the Shoa. Its purpose is to remember, to remind and to bear witness to the calamity that is called the Holocaust. The class will be engaged in a collective as well as a personal journey through the history of the people, places and events that marked this terrible period of human endeavour. The class will read testimonials, view films and participate in activities intended to reaffirm the values of mutual respect and dignity for our fellow human beings.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-200-AB (2.2.2) JOURNALISM: THE NEWS AS MUSE | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course serves as an introduction to the conventions of journalism. It will provide marketable skills for students who wish to pursue a career in journalism. The focus will be upon issues in the news related to each student's specific program. Creativity will be encouraged by using the news as a "muse" (source of inspiration). 603-200-AB (2.2.2) LITERARY FORGERIES | P: 603-101 Literary forgeries are often overlooked due to the notion that their criminality and historical inaccuracy outweigh their literary merit. Yet forgeries have played an important role in the shaping of literary, cultural, social, and political trends. In this course, we will consider the various motives behind and responses to several literary forgeries in an effort to determine where the boundaries are (if any exist) between forgery and fiction and between subjectivity and dishonesty-- and to consider whether there is such a thing as an ethically justifiable lie. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) LITERATURE AND THE LAND | P: 603-101 This course explores the relationship between the land, community, survival, and writing. We read poetic and scientific texts from Western and traditional cultures that reflect consciousness of the land and of environmental issues. We explore how different genres allow diverse perspectives, world views and types of knowledge to be portrayed. We consider a variety of ways in which authors explore human consciousness of the land, and see how all living beings coexist on Earth in dynamic interrelationship. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) MANUFACTURING IDENTI TY | P: 603-101 This course examines how human identity is shaped by industrialization and technology. Students will learn about the history of the division of labour and emerging technologies (from the steam loom weaver to photography to voice recording) and how they affected our understanding of the stability and the fragility of the self. The course also investigates the development of surveillance technologies from Orwell`s telescreens to Facebook. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) MATERIAL WORLD, IN A | P: 603-101 We live in a society dominated by consumerism, a shop-till-you-drop world where material goods are valued above all else. The end goal of contemporary life is not to be virtuous, but to be rich. The pursuit of pleasure preoccupies us more than the pursuit of wisdom. In this course we will take a close, critical look at our consumerist society from numerous angles, including teen culture, advertising, education, the environment, and the developing world. Students will improve their oral and written argumentative skills while dealing with this interesting issue. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) THE METAMORPHIC SELF | P: 603-101 Many works of literature focus on characters that undergo enormous changes in their lives: Alice`s adventures in Wonderland find her becoming magically larger and smaller, and Dr. Jekyll unlocks his own darker side to become Mr. Hyde. As readers, we can look at these characters to see how their transformations allow them (or us) to gain perspective, learning more about themselves and the world in which they live. In this course, we will examine how such changes open up new possibilities for thought and feeling, and how a self might be understood when we can see it being two things at once. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) MYTH AND SOCIETY | P: 603-101 This course is designed to introduce students to the study of mythology and its various components: its purpose, its methods, and the various connections to be made with other forms of literature, to religion, and especially to cultural attitudes. The content of the course will include selections from Native American, Hebrew, Greek and European cultures. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) NATURE | P: 603-101 This course focuses on positive relationships between humans and nature, as presented in essays (natural history and expository), one novel, and short stories.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-200-AB (2.2.2) POSTMODERN CONCERNS | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course offers an introduction to some of the more useful and engaging ideas and issues associated with the term "postmodernism." Students will develop a familiarity with and mastery of key postmodern terms and concepts through the study of an array of literary genres (critical theory, expository prose, memoir, graphic novel and drama) as well as film, Broadway musical, television and opera. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) PRACTICAL COMMUNICAT ION | P: 603-101 Problem-solving and communication are skills vital to success in almost all fields of work. This course aims to provide the student with instruction and practice in various kinds of real world communications addressing problems and finding solutions. Largely through the use of a case study method, the course emphasizes communicating in business and professional contexts and is intended to be of practical value for students looking to sharpen their abilities in conceiving, organizing, writing and presenting effective texts. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) READING AND WRITING ABOUT THE ARTS | P: 603-101 We regularly consume works of art-- film, dance, architecture, etc.; sometimes we respond to them. This course explores the relationships between works of art and verbal response. The major assignments will involve exploring the relationship between some area of the arts and the student`s field of study. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) SIGNS OF OUR TIME | P: 603-101 This course will examine certain current social issues and ideas of concern to most of us. Through a selection of literature, we will explore aspects of popular culture and assess their validity. Students will be encouraged to read actively and think critically and to interpret and evaluate the texts. Students will practise several forms of writing relevant to studies in social science. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) THE SIXTIES | P: 603-101 This course helps students discover salient aspects of the last century`s most dynamic and influential decade: the 1960s. Through the looking at aspects relating to history (Kennedy administration, civil rights movement), politics (student protests, cold war), science (space race), art (pop art), music (acoustic to electric guitar), mass events (Woodstock, Expo 67), we will study this inimitably golden age of the century, while mastering the practice of the technical aspects of an English course, notably the ins and outs of\essay writing. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND | P: 603-101 What happens when we find ourselves in a totally new and unfamiliar environment? Do we reinvent ourselves, conquer the new, or seamlessly assimilate? This course will explore the different methods, philosophies, and challenges in which characters, who have suddenly become strangers in a strange land, adapt to new places and new modes of being. Works read may include Shelley`s Frankenstein, Greene`s Our Man in Havana, and short stories from Lahiri, Diaz, and Ballard. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) TEEN TALK | P: 603-101 In the western world, society revolves around the concept of youth. Images of youth dominate popular culture, as well as the consumer world. The message to adults is that they should try to remain forever young. And yet, in all of this, where is the voice of teens? What are teenagers` real values and desires? Are teens merely crass materialists, or are they also concerned with serious social issues? What is it like to be a teenager in our consumer society? This course will address some of these questions by reading texts, both non-fiction and fiction, that centre on the teen experience. We will deal with issues such as gender, race, sexuality, family, consumerism and materialism, all through the voice of teens.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-200-AB (2.2.2) THEATRE WORKSHOP: ENGLISH | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

This course is ideal for students studying or just plain interested in theatre (Theatre Workshop students, Professional Theatre students, scientists who really want to go on the stage...) The all-round, all-in-one, magic theatre course for all horses. Designed to meet the requirements of students in the Professional Theatre Program and those enrolled in the Theatre Workshop, the course accommodates students in all stages of the CEGEP English curriculum. All students work together on theatrical projects, while doing other assignments specific to their college level. Students can expect to develop facility in reading, watching and interpreting a variety of texts (dramatic, fictional, poetic, and cinematic) as well as improving written and oral expression in English. The Final Showcase offers an opportunity for dramatic writing to students in the Playwright Stream and group performance to all participants. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) TEXTS AND CONTEXTS: AN INTRODUCTION TO LITERARY GENRE | P: 603-101 Texts and Contexts will familiarise students with the main contemporary theoretical approaches to literature. By describing features shared by the most effective critics, the course will attempt to give students a sound basis for their own writing. The approaches we examine will be applied to major writers of the 20th century and students will be encouraged to apply these approaches to the literary texts they will be studying in their other Liberal Arts courses. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) TEXTS, TEXTILES, CONTEXTS: | P: 603-101 Weaving, spinning, and other textile arts have long served as metaphors for storytelling: a storyteller spins a tale, we follow the thread of a narrative, a good story is referred to as a yarn, and so on. In this course, we will take a close look at this pattern of figuration. Our course work includes literary analysis, historical research, and practical, hands-on lessons in the textile arts. The different forms of knowledge with which we`ll work-- historical, practical, narrative, figurative--are meant to enrich our understanding and appreciation of the course`s key literary texts. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) TRACES OF MEMORY: 20TH CENTURY HISTORY THRO UGH LITERATURE | P: 603-101 This course explores various forms of discourse used in the representation of 20th-century history. As our focus is predominantly on genocide, oppression, and war, we will explore the roots and subsequent impact of racial, fascist, Nazi, and totalitarian ideologies as well as situate these in their proper historical and social contexts. We will then explore the ethical challenges inherent in the act of documenting historical memory through autobiography, fiction, film, the graphic novel, journalism, nonfiction, poetry, and the visual arts. By building an informed awareness of the impact of genocide, oppression, and war upon our individual and collective memories, we aim to explore constructive and critical ways of understanding the weighty role of history upon our lives. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) THE BIBLE AS LITERAT URE | P: 603-101 The Bible is the foundation document of two of the three great Abrahamic religions, Judaism and Christianity. Even Islam, notwithstanding the absolute pre-eminence of the Qur`an, acknowledges a debt to the Bible. It is therefore a significant monument in the cultural landscape of a great many of us. It is seminal to many great works of literature, art, music and architecture in the Western tradition. In addition, the ethical principles found therein are at the heart of the sense of justice and the codes of justice most of us live with. Note that it is a fundamental premise of this course that all religious narratives are myths created by people, in this instance, largely, if not exclusively, men, in specific times and places and for purposes about which their very existence invites us to speculate. This is not to say that the Bible should not be considered true. It is true in the same way that all great literature is true, insofar as it resonates with paradigms and motifs that hit at the heart of the psycho-spiritual experience of humankind. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) UNDERSTANDING MEDIA | P: 603-101 Why study popular culture? Popular culture reflects the values of our society. It also influences our ideas and behaviour. Thus, we understand our society and the forces that shape us better if we analyse popular culture. Lastly, it is interesting to examine the often highly sophisticated techniques it uses to get its messages across and their impact. As Marshall McLuhan often remarked, The medium is the message. The course will examine advertising, television programming, news and film.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 603-200-AB (2.2.2) VOLUNTEERING: COMMUNITY AND COMMUNICATIO N | P: 603-101

COURSE CALENDAR | English

Volunteering: Community and Communications is a practical communications course focused on doing volunteer work with seniors and disadvantaged members of the community. The class is centred on the idea that besides being college students pursuing academic goals, young adults are also vitally connected to their community. These positive visions go beyond the traditional role of students following an academic program, to include fieldwork options: preparing and delivering meals, designing recreational activities for shut-in seniors and mentally handicapped, tutoring at-risk immigrant pupils, running food and clothing banks, hospital assistance... Students thus learn more about their own compassionate strengths in the broader context of the community. In addition to their weekly fieldwork, students keep journals, write essays, engage in research and readings and deliver oral case reports. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) THE WEST AND THE WOR LD | P: 603-101 This course surveys contemporary literature and film about encounters, interactions, and tensions between Western and non-Western cultures. Topics may include Canadian multiculturalism, immigrant experiences and reasonable accommodation, literature about cultures formerly dominated by the West, and Western responses to troubled parts of the world today. The course emphasizes critical thinking, reading, and writing, while encouraging students to explore their own perspectives on the current climate of culture wars. 603-200-AB (2.2.2) WRITING TUTORS | P: 603-101 This course is open to students who have received grades of 85% or more in English. Students will have the opportunity to tutor for two hours of their class time per week and study English at an enriched level.

602-100-MQ FRENCH: Beginner 602-101-MQ FRENCH: Low intermediate 602-102-MQ FRENCH: Intermediate 602-103-MQ FRENCH: Advanced These courses are designed to prepare students for full participation in Quebec society. The objective is to enable students to communicate in French with a certain degree of fluency and take into account the objectives of the secondary French program and also accommodate the varying abilities of students. By the time students arrive at college, they should have acquired basic skills in four areas of language proficiency: speaking, reading, writing and listening, emphasizing reading and writing. A variety of teaching methods are used in the Block A courses depending upon which of the four skills is being taught. Whenever possible, the written materials studied are texts originally intended for francophone readers. Each level is defined by the complexity of the texts studied and the type of written assignments students are expected to produce. Beginners' French works on developing equally the four basic language skills so students can communicate in French with a basic degree of facility. Low intermediate French works on developing the four basic language skills, however, the emphasis is on reading and writing. The objective is to communicate in French with a certain degree of facility. In Intermediate French reading assignments are longer and more complex. The written assignments are more demanding and the cultural component more important.

Students are permitted to register in their Block B course only after completion of their Block A French course (The Block A course is a pre-requisite to the Block B courses) The program-related Block B French course is designed to help students consolidate and improve skills developed in the Block A course. It also enriches students` command of French by emphasizing language abilities directly related to a particular type of profession or field of study. The College determines the specific course content which best responds to students` needs. The teaching methods, texts, written and oral exams, group work, class presentations, portfolios, etc., are tailored to students` program of study or future professional requirements. As in the common core (Block A) courses, there are four levels of program related (Block B) courses. The standards and objectives of the different levels vary according to the difficulty of the material studied and the length and complexity of the written assignments. At the Advanced Level (602-CAF), students with excellent written skills may choose to register in a special course and upon recommendation become tutors to help other students at the CAF (centre d`aide en français).

The Advanced French (602-103-MQ) is centered entirely on the study of literature and culture. Textual analysis and composition are emphasized. At this level, the different sections have specific themes that may vary from one semester to another: Arts et culture des romantiques ­ XIXe siècle Cinéma Contes et nouvelles Création littéraire Histoire du français Introduction à la littérature francophone Introduction à la littérature du XXe siècle Introduction à l`histoire de la littérature Journalisme La Bande dessinée La Condition féminine Le Roman contemporain Le Roman policier La Littérature française à travers les âges Littérature des temps modernes Littérature fantastique Montréal : Culture et spectacles Poésie Poésie québécoise Théâtre

Humanities: World Views

World views are understandings of reality shared by groups or societies defined or self-defined on the basis of common geography, economic status, gender, sexual orientation, ideology, history, religion, spirituality, political values, psychology, language, culture, (dis) ability, etc. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) AFRICA: ISSUES ON TH E DARK CONTINENT Tyrannical governments, civil war and ethnic conflict, and border invasions all threaten the possibility of peace and stability in many regions in Africa. Pandemics such as AIDS, avoidable famines, illiteracy, and gender issues also combine to keep Africa underdeveloped and in poverty. This course will examine contemporary issues on the African continent within their historical context. Students will study some of the political, social and economic ideas that guide African countries` attempts to break these ongoing patterns that result in poverty and underdevelopment. The primary educational approach will be through case studies. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) ASPECTS OF FREEDOM Students will examine (with the help of the instructor) the question of individual freedom and societal liberty. Therefore they will be introduced to the various problems of authority (negative freedom). In the course of the semester, possible solutions, if any should exist, will be considered and debated. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) THE ART OF BEING HUM AN What does it mean to be human? Do we realize the fullness of our humanity in quiet contemplation, study, or prayer? Or is it the case that we can only hope to realize the fullness of our humanity in the messy world of human relationships? Do we become fully human only when we care for friends and family members, children and strangers? Or is true salvation to be found in animistic communion with Nature? Human beings have been asking questions of this kind for thousands of years. This course is an introduction to some of these timeless questions. But it is also a survey of the historically-specific answers. This course is meant to be a general introduction to the humanities, centering upon the West`s centuries-old preoccupation with the art of being human. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) C O N T E M P O R A R Y C A R I B B E A N C U L T U R E A N D I D E N T I T Y : BE Y O N D T H E BO U N D A R I E S The Caribbean has produced world-renowned writers, economists, and intellectuals and its popular culture, including reggae music and Rastafari, have had a profound influence on global consciousness and popular culture. The Caribbean has also experience formidable challenges ­ the near extinction of indigenous peoples, slavery, and today it faces graves social and economic challenges. In this course we will explore Caribbean culture from various perspectives, many advanced by West Indian cultural theorists, who define culture as constituting a form of knowledge, as well as embodying substantive beliefs and customs. The course is organized around issues and themes, reflecting the historical and present realities of the Caribbean and its diaspora, and the dynamic cultural patterns of their societies. We explore socially relevant themes, such as Men and Women, Work and Power, Love and Sexuality, Conflict and Protest, Tradition and Innovation. These diverse themes or issues are brought to life through the student`s encounter with Caribbean culture, as embodied in a variety of approaches, including historical, philosophical, socio-political, literary, artistic and theatrical. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) BODY MIND I think, therefore I am. Who thinks? What is thinking? What are thoughts? How does the mind affect the body and vice versa? What is mind? How can the mind work for and against us? What is it capable of? This course will attempt to address some of these perplexing questions. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) BODY-MIND INTENSIVE This course will cover the same philosophical questions as outlined in Body/Mind over the course of 10 weeks on campus. The remaining 5 weeks will be condensed into an Intensive portion, where for one weekend, students will be immersed in the application of Body/Mind analysis, including practical applications in an ashram setting.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) CINEMA POLITICA

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

This course will examine global cinema in the twentieth century as a lens through which to understand the history of social movements seeking socio-political and cultural change in their own particular contexts. The course will be guided by the roving camera eye that has sought to capture, shape, and intervene on the radical changes transpiring in the world. These significant changes in the political fabric have also led to important changes in the cinematic apparatus itself, producing new forms of revolutionary cinema. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) CANADA: WHO NEEDS IT? Generally speaking this is a course about our identity as Canadians. It`s about how this identity affects how we understand and order our experience and the choices we make as individuals and as a community. Particularly, we will examine the American influence on Canada`s culture, economy, politics, etc. and how this shapes our ideals, values and beliefs, and the limits this imposes on our choices as a country. Among other issues, we will critically examine some of the icons and clichés of Canada`s self definition such as multiculturalism, bilingualism, mosaic, a community of communities, and the peaceable kingdom, and debate their validity and value in our claim to a unique identity in North America. This course is based on the premise that the dual processes of Americanisation and globalisation are rapidly closing the door to an independent and sovereign Canada in which a truly unique Canadian identity and worldview can be developed. If this is the Canada we choose, then indeed... who needs it? 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) THE CANADIAN LANDSCA PE In his conclusion to The Bush Garden, Northrop Frye makes the following comparison: To enter the United States is a matter of crossing an ocean; to enter Canada is a matter of being silently swallowed up by an alien continent. Canada has come to be defined by this primordial encounter with the forbidding wilderness, a land indifferent and occasionally hostile to humanity`s presence. We will investigate the ways in which early Canadian culture was largely formed by this encounter, and to what extent it continues to shape our art, literature and national consciousness. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) CREATIVITY AND THE ARTIST`S LIFE This course explores elevated artistic expression and its characteristics by comparing the lives of six remarkable artists: three who suffered from turbulent mood extremes, and three who did not. First are the Russian composer Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky, American poet Sylvia Plath, and Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. Secondly, the Czech composer Antonin Dvorak, British poet W.H. Auden, and Spanish painter Pablo Picasso. By comparing their cultures, nationalities, sexualities, dispositions and work habits, we examine the nature of the creative temperament. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) CRITICAL PERSPECTIVE S ON PHOTOGRAPHY In this course photographic representations that form part of the dominant discourses about pleasure, individualism and group belonging will be critically examined. The popular assumption of the essentially truthful or objective nature of photography makes it a particularly powerful medium in shaping our understanding of ourselves and the world. Such assumptions and their effects will be questioned through the study of different photographic genres, artistic movements and theories about photography. One of the major themes running through the course will be the representation of the body. The photo-body is an inescapable feature of contemporary life and is a site of anxiety, desire and the formation of identity. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) EDUCATION AND WORLD VIEWS What do we mean by education? There are many worldviews on this question. Some say we are empty vessels waiting to be filled. Some say we already know; it needs only the right stimulation or opportunity to manifest itself. According to other worldviews, what we need comes from established disciplines via texts, teachers and tests in assigned classrooms. For others still, it comes via experience, encounters in nature and in life outside the classroom. In examining education we also need to consider different learning styles and how they, in turn, shape one`s worldview.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) EGYPTIAN AND NEAR EASTERN CIVILIZATION

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

This course is an introduction to the great civilizations of Egypt and the Near East. We begin with a brief description and discussion of historical events and excerpts from literature in order to provide a context within which to understand such important developments as the invention of writing, the first known set of laws, and the creation of monumental works of art and architecture glorifying pharaohs and kings. We also examine more mundane and human aspects of daily life, such as love and sex and religion and magic in this part of the ancient world. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) EXPLORING GENDER REL ATIONS: GENDER MAPS, EROTIC PRISMS Our worldviews about males and females assume diagnoses about what roles, identities and experiences are natural vs. unnatural for men and women, and imply prescriptions about what, for both, constitutes lifeaffirming vs. life-negating values, choices and actions. Our identification as male or female is significant in its consequences. It thus frames and influences the questions we ask about ourselves and the ideals that we pursue as sexual beings, the terms for success or failure in our intimate relationships, the response of others to our personal and interpersonal sexual self-expression, and the assumptions we make about heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual identities as such world views are sites for the appropriation and experience of our gendered/sexual selves. This course provides an opportunity for students to study opposing and complementary worldviews, both secular and nonsecular: biological, spiritual, psychological, sociological, anthropological and philosophical. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) FEMINISM: I`M NOT A FEMINIST, BUT... But what? You want your little sister to feel safe walking home? You hate if when your friends call you a fag for taking yoga? The post-feminist myth tells us we don`t need feminism anymore: sexism has disappeared, girls have gone wild, boys can use cover up, and we are living gender equal lives. Are we... really? A closer look shows a more complicated picture. Using an intersectional framework which integrates an analysis of racism, classism and homophobia, we will look at how young people in Canada try to make sense of their lives in not so postfeminist times. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) GREEK AND ROMAN CIVILIZATION This course is an introduction to the great civilizations of Greece and Rome. We approach the study of these cultures both chronologically and thematically, focusing on important people, events, periods and developments to provide a context within which to understand not only art, architecture and literature, but advances in science and technology and the evolution of new political systems and social structures. Many of the ideals and inventions as well as the creative endeavours of the Greeks and Romans provide the basis for our modern western culture. This course will be offered as a regular course and occasionally as study abroad intensive. Students who choose this course with the trip option will be participating in a two-week study trip to Greece in the late spring, and will cover the course material both before the trip and on-site. Course fees will apply for study abroad course. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) HUMAN NATURE AND SOC IAL VALUES Are human beings essentially good or bad? Is inequality a natural and necessary condition of humankind? Is history progressing towards a particular end? Are we living in a free society? These are some of the questions that are vital to the understanding of our modern world. We will try to answer those questions and, in the process, we will examine different views of human nature and identify the values we share with the rest of society. We will study the ideas of famous thinkers, from ancient Greece to the twentieth century, and explain how our views of the world have been shaped by centuries of reflection on human nature and society. Ultimately, the objective is to better understand the meaning of key values promoted (or disputed) in society: power, freedom, equality, and peace. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) IMAGES IN MYTH AND EPIC Myths define world views in story, ritual, and symbol. Focusing on the mythology of the ancient and medieval worlds, students in this course explore the world views behind various tales of creation, and investigate a variety of answers to the meaning of love, war, death, power, and life itself.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) INDIAN VIEWS

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

This course will compare essential tenets of two distinct cultures named with a common name by Westerners who colonized the lands they occupied. Both cultures have outstanding written and oral traditions that predated western civilization, and which remained largely untouched by and unattended to by western institutions until the last seven generations. Both of these cultures have offered wisdom to the west in the form of tools for personal and social organization. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) AN INTRODUCTION TO WORLD VIEWS The purpose of the course is to enable the student to articulate and investigate questions about the meaning and nature of world view as a concept and a reality. Issues discussed include the importance of this concept in academic research, in our everyday interactions, in understanding issues related to international events and, finally, the questions and concerns raised when world views meet or collide within multicultural societies. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) KNOWING QUEERS?: TH AT`S SO GAY! Or is it? Can you be sure? How did you come to believe what you believe about lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, queers, and the transgendered and intersex folk with whom they are so often confused? This course will interrogate some conventional and popular understandings of LGBQTI peoples and juxtapose them with the diverse ways in which LGBTQI people understand and represent themselves and their worlds. The course makes use of an intersectional framework that takes race, ethnicity, class, religion, (dis)ability, gender and sex into account in rethinking what it means to be gay. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) LOST IN TRANSLATION: JAPAN`S DIVERSITY What happens when our understanding of another culture comes to us through the lens of our own worldview? How do images and desires produced, for example, by novels or films create an a historical image of Japan as "Other"? This class introduces Japanese culture and society and questions the construction of "the Japanese" as a monolith. We focus on the diversity within contemporary Japan, looking at how groups such as teenagers, gays and lesbians, feminists, resident Koreans (among others) experience life and resist dominant sexist, capitalist, and racist discourses. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) MARXISM Marxism is an integral worldview blending a philosophy (including a materialist conception of history), an economic theory, the theory and tactics of the communist movements in their diversity (including the Marxist appraisals of the most important mass trends in the present-day democratic movement), and the theory of socialism and communism. In this course, we will study the fundamentals of Marxism and compare Marxism with other worldviews such as Existentialism, Freudianism, Thomism, and Platonism. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) THE NEXT GENERATION? This course explores the history and nature of childbirth and childrearing in Canada at individual, family and social levels including the 'medical institutionalization' of pregnancy and birth. In addition, it looks at the collective development of 'generations' or age cohorts; their shared experiences, characteristics, life 'markers' and power (or lack thereof) wielded by each of these groups in society. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) NORTH-SOUTH RELATIONS This course deals with the following issues: (i) an examination of understanding of a Third World culture; (ii) the dynamics of change the Third World culture is undergoing in the face of a dominant international (Western) culture; (iii) a historical and contemporary review of the relations and trade between the industrially developed countries (North) and the Third World (South). 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) POETRY AND SOCIAL CHANGE In this course we will look at the differences between poetry and propaganda; the similarities between poetry and prayer; the fertile ground between poetry and song. Using list-serve sources and students' findings, we'll attempt to see how poets have influenced social conceptualization in the past and present, in the West and elsewhere.

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

What would make you really happy? Falling in love? Winning the lottery? Becoming famous? Taking a long vacation? Getting a new car? Losing some weight? Spending a day at the spa? Going on a shopping spree at the mall? Would any or all of these things provide you with the happiness that you desire? Or would they merely provide you with fleeting pleasures? Is your happiness ultimately a function of your worldview? Can your worldview change? Or is it fixed by nature or nurture? Human beings have been asking questions of this kind for thousands of years. This course is an introduction to some of these timeless questions. But it is also a survey of the historically specific answers provided by poets, philosophers, and psychologists. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) REEL POLITICS: MYTH IN THE MAKING This course explores how feature films project political views and social values. We will highlight the filmmaker`s message by analyzing the cinematic techniques, characters and plots of political-genre films and by exploring our own intellectual and emotional reactions. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) RELIGIONS AND LIBERATION This course will examine the traditions of liberation in the religious worldviews of Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, especially as they relate to the work of social justice in the world. While the practice of liberation as a source of personal transcendence and awakening is amply documented in books and the media, the traditions of religious liberation as a means to build a just society tends to be overlooked. If religious traditions are all too often understood to be one of the many causes of sectarian violence, wars, and other forms of oppression, this course will examine those traditions, and the social movements born from them, that inspire religious peoples to work for social justice in their own contexts. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) SCI FI AND PHILOSOPH Y Through the study of alternative worlds and unorthodox societies this class will engage many of the perennial questions about human nature, social organization, and the nature of reality. However, rather than exclusively using traditional philosophical texts, we will engage these questions through the use of fiction, especially the kind of critical fiction that has come to be known as science fiction. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) THE STAGES OF LIFE Thinkers from Ovid to Shakespeare to Freud have understood human life as being divided into various stages, or seasons. From the infant, mewling and puking in its mother`s arms, to the elderly person on the brink of death, sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything, as described by Jaques in Shakespeare`s As You Like It, each age has been reflected upon, written about and, of course, depicted. On a grand scale, this course will be an attempt to understand how art informs the understanding of the self in transition, past, present and future. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) TAKING SIDES ON WORLD VIEWS AND DRAMA Interested in debating? Interested in discovering how you can use world views to contextualize an argument? Using Lorraine Hanberry`s A Raisin in the Sun, David Mamet`s Oleanna, and Bertolt Brecht`s Three Penny Opera, you will learn how to apply world views to interpret drama. Afterwards you can then use these techniques in whatever academic or non-academic area you wish to pursue. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) TECHNOLOGY AND HUMAN VALUES Technology provides us with a form of knowledge and a way of doing things that are based on instrumental reason, expediency and functionalism, even though many of us remain convinced that it is value-free. Besides inventing and using technologies, human beings happen to have moral experiences as they constantly grapple with questions regarding freedom, rights, responsibilities, good, evil, right and wrong. In this course we will be examining and assessing the scope and limitations of technology from a humanistic and ethical perspective.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) TELEVISION DRAMA: THE CULTURAL CONTEXT

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

Television is a pervasive medium of mass communication in our lives today. Its role is to inform, educate, and entertain us. When it performs all three at the same time this represents 'quality television' which produces meaning for its audiences. The televisual form that corresponds most often to this label is 'drama' because drama tells us stories about who we are as individuals and as a nation. It tells us where we came from and what we are capable of. Drama presents us with the heroes and villains who inhabit the history of our country and the depths of our humanity; memorable characters who shape our experience and our culture. This course will examine Canadian television drama past and present. Then we'll compare and contrast Canadian dramatic traditions and conventions with those of other countries, particularly the American networks and Britain's BBC. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) THE THEATRE OF LIFE: STAGING EXPERIENCE A ND EXPLORING VALUES Derived from the Greek theatron`, theatre creates external spaces that provide both insight into our interior lives, and instruction about the human condition. It allows us to see and recognize timeless truths about ourselves and others. Divided into three acts: Act I: Human Nature and Characterization; Act II: Bringing Character to Life; and Act III: Characters in Conflict, this (team-taught) course holds theatre and the drama` up to students as a mirror which presents them with diverse angles of vision about the real, the true and the good. Students will develop a discriminating perception allowing them to explore the reality of what they see and hear in theatrical works of art; to examine what they judge to be true or false about the psychological development and emotional make-up of character; and to reveal the values underlying and motivating their own behaviour/performance as well as that of others. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) VALUING DIVERSITY Recently we have seen a radical, difficult, and uneven shift toward a world view that values diversity and mutuality. This development can most readily be seen in the explosion of movements against discrimination and against the division of the world into haves and have-nots. This emerging world view challenges most traditional ideologies which hold that people in one group (e.g., men, whites, Christians, Brahmins, heterosexuals) are better than and/or have a right to more than people in another group (e.g., women, people of color, non-Christians, untouchables, gays and lesbians). This ongoing shift is changing the way we see others and ourselves, and our views on education, our economic views, and our laws. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) VIEWS ON DEATH AND DYING We look at contemporary attitudes, and examine some ways in which people have tried to resolve the universal problem of death. We will also consider the consequences of the denial of death and the importance for the individual of coming to terms with his or her mortality. The course will seek to establish the various means by which people have come to terms with their own mortality. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) VIEWS ON ORDER AND FREEDOM The function of a world view is, in part, to describe how society is and/or should be organized. Order and freedom are two important concepts in any such description. How can we achieve an ordered society? How much freedom should citizens have? Answers to these (and other) questions come from various political theories, many of which will be examined in this course. These include theories from Ancient Greece, the Renaissance, and the modern period. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) VIEWS FROM THE GLOBAL SOUTH In this course we will look at diverse world views in different parts of South Asia and the Middle East. The objective of this course is to gain a better understanding of the cultural, social and political ideas in these parts of the 'global South.' In particular, we will look at the ideas and beliefs that have shaped the culture of these regions by examining their religions and customs. We will also look at the contemporary social and political situation in these regions.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) WAR AND PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

With the end of World War II and the creation of the state of Israel, the relations between three of the world`s major religions ­ Christianity, Judaism and Islam ­ were thrown into conflict. The Arab Nation was broken into a number of nation-states which have developed in various ways from tentative approaches toward westernization and democratic forms of government to the counter reactions of resurgent Islam. There have been a series of wars, some involving Israel and its neighbours, and many, mostly unrealized, peace proposals. The politics of oil has magnified all the regional conflicts into world issues. The course is about worldviews in conflict without resolution yet. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) WAR, PEACE AND WORLD ORDER This course will provide students with an understanding of several views on global order. Students will critically analyze the realist world view, which sees competition, inequality and war as inherent features of our state system, and examine the implications of this perspective for world order. This world view will then be compared to a number of alternative perspectives, inspired by such sources as liberalism, pacifism, socialism, feminism, anarchism and ecologism. Each world view will be examined according to a number of dimensions, including its core values and views on human nature, the fundamental cause(s) of war, and the possibilities for peace. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) WOMEN`S HUMAN RIGHTS This course will look at the development of an international movement to advance women`s human rights over the past decades. Students will study the tensions and commonalities between approaches to the question of women`s human rights from the perspectives of various agents: feminist, women, NGO and human rights groups, national governments, and the United Nations. Is domestic violence a human rights issue? Are human rights a form of western imperialism masquerading as a universal? What assumptions are human rights based upon? How have women both interrogated and mobilized these concepts to advance their rights in various national, regional and international contexts? Topics to be explored include: human rights, feminism, universalism, cultural relativism, ethnocentrism, anti-ethnocentrism, activism, global/local relations, and transnational networking. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) THE WORLDS OF MUSIC The Worlds of Music will examine the music produced by different societies and groups as well as the worlds` created by music. Using musical case studies, students will learn to identify the key elements of a world view and the basic concepts that determine a society or group`s interactions with music. From societies where music is forbidden, to societies where it plays a central part in daily life, the course will begin by examining the complex relationship between music, sound and society. We will use case studies to look at how different social cultures incorporate music and music-making into an understanding of religion, defence, personal relationships, politics, group identify and other aspects of social life. 345-102-MQ (3.0.3) THE WIDE WORLD OF SP ORTS This course will examine the sports culture of different societies and groups, and the significance of the growing influence of professional sport in North American society. Using case studies, students will learn to identify the key elements of a worldview, and the concepts that shape and define a society or group`s relationship with sport. From societies where sport participation is tied to national identity and pride, to places where it plays an entertainment content role in a corporate media conglomerate, we will examine the complex human relationships with sport.

Humanities: Knowledge

A field of knowledge can be any serious body of knowledge relating to education, law, psychology, creativity, social behaviour, or other disciplines. Humanities approaches each from an interdisciplinary perspective. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) À TABLE: KNOWING WHA T TO EAT What`s for dinner? This course critically examines what we learn about ourselves and our society from our food supply, and how that knowledge is organized and used. It also explores how we behave socially, and often politically, when we make food choices and educate our children about the origins, traditions and values surrounding food. Special attention is paid to the history and evolution of the human diet and food production, as well as the importance of maintaining traditional forms of knowledge in the face of such challenges as climate change, fossil fuel depletion, population growth, and food security.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) CANADA'S DOCUMENTARY TRADITION

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

Canada, through its National Film Board, has come to define the documentary film. The Film Board's purpose has always been "to reflect Canada to Canadians and the rest of the world". CBC television continues the tradition of excellence with documentary programming such as The Nature of Things and The Fifth Estate. This course will examine the history of documentary filmmaking and the non-fiction film tradition in this country. We will analyze the intentions of documentary filmmakers and discuss the audio-visual techniques, approaches and styles they employ in telling their stories. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) THE CITY, SOCIETY AND THE ENVIRONMENT The city is one of the most important physical expressions of human society. How did cities begin? What makes a city work? These are some of the questions which will be explored in this course. The course will examine the modern city and some of its problems in today's globalized world. It will compare the modern city with the living spaces of more traditional, indigenous societies. In this course we will look at the relationship of the city to culture, environment, technology and energy. We will also explore new ways of imagining different kinds of communities which are more sustainable. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) COLONIZATION BY KNOWLEDGE In this course we will use written, electronic and audio-visual material to explore some of the important conditions for knowledge of others and ourselves. We will begin with definitions of human rights to determine what basic rights we can claim: those which contribute to the pursuit of knowledge and truth universally. We will look at humans` relationship to the environment, and how it has evolved to make certain types of knowledge nearly inaccessible and other types of knowledge, in certain contexts, nearly meaningless. We will look at who lays claim to knowledge, and for what purposes and at the evolution of knowledge communities and people`s attempts to resist them. We`ll look at who chooses to stay dumb and why. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) COMMUNICATION: SELF & SOCIETY I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. What does it mean to communicate? What do you say after you say Hello? Why is it so difficult to understand each other? Why do some people argue and fight all the time? If people use the same words, why do they mean different things? Just what is body language? Are first impressions really right? Is there such a thing as constructive criticism? What does it mean to listen? Didn`t you hear what I said? How many times do I have to tell you? What`s the matter, are you deaf? What`s the point of trying to talk to you? Doesn`t anyone understand me? Can I learn to communicate more effectively? 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) CURRENT EVENTS With satellite television and the Internet, the distinction between news makers and reporters often disappears. Truth is the first casualty of war and public relations the first harbinger of peace. Newspapers compete with television for versions of the sensational. Images determine elections. Sound bites control decisions. Polls influence what becomes public policy. How are we to know what is happening in our world, given the mix of fact and fiction, the plethora of docudramas and infomercials, the varieties of propaganda and expert opinion? 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) DOCUMENTING MYTHS: FILM, POLITICS, CITIZENSHIP Documentary films engaging a variety of social and political issues have in recent years attracted enormous popular attention and critical praise. In this course we explore how knowledge about the world and its inhabitants is produced, shared, contested, and distributed across societies and national borders through the vehicle of documentary film. By viewing a dozen or so documentaries we will address a number of issues and responsibilities (the filmmakers' and ours) related to representation, ethics, citizenship, consumption, and social engagement. The aim of the course is to make us better informed and equipped citizens in an increasingly complex and interconnected global society.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) EDUCATION WARS

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

What is the ultimate purpose of public education in a democratic regime such as ours? Are we, as a society, trying to create good employees, good citizens, or good people? What values (if any) do we implicitly seek to inculcate? Democratic values? Patriotic values? Secular values? Meritocratic values? Corporate values? Are we trying to transmit specialized information? Marketable skills? Or are we merely trying to teach people how to think critically? Does thinking critically merely mean adopting your teacher`s worldview and politics? What`s worth knowing? And who decides? This course is an introduction to some of these timeless questions. But it is also a survey of the historically specific answers provided by educational theorists such as Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau, Allan Bloom, and Martha Nussbaum. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) GENRE CINEMA AND IDEOLOGIES This course will examine the relationship between cinema and dominant ideologies as sources of knowledge for understanding our world. The course will be framed through the lens of genre cinema: the western, film noir, and horror. The individual films examined in the course will be critically appraised within their respective genres and also within the socio-political, cultural, and historical context in which they were made and viewed. As a sometimes controversial popular cinematic form, genre cinema offers a resonant frame through which to analyze conflicting ideologies, social controversies, and debates on historical perspectives in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) KNOWING THE INNER SELF The twentieth century has seen an explosion of interest in human psychology and personal development, from the early investigations of Freud and Jung, through the human development movement of the sixties and seventies, to Alcoholics Anonymous and other self-help groups (e.g., incest survivors, cancer survivors, holocaust survivors). From individual and small group settings, these issues are now widely popularized in bestselling paperback books and on television programs such as the Oprah Winfrey Show. This course provides an overview of the dramatic change in understanding human nature. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) KNOWING THROUGH CREATIVE WORKS People from all societies explore and understand the world in part through creative works such as myths, fairy tales, novels and films. We will cover a number of recent creative works. The goal of the course is to comprehend the role of such works in our lives. A special emphasis will be how current social issues are dealt with in popular novels and films. We will be exploring: what we learn about life through creative works; how such knowing differs from and yet connects with other forms of knowing (through research, intuition, etc.); how creative works have different functions at different times; and how people`s lives, ideas, and favourite creative works or fictional characters may be linked. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) KNOWING THROUGH MUSIC This course uses music to show how we create, acquire and process knowledge in different ways. Music is universal; it expresses emotion and symbolic content. All varieties of musical expression have a place in our society, and the course aims to include many of these expressions. Through attentive listening to music, reading, thinking, watching movies about, experiencing and discussing it, the student should emerge with a broader knowledge and appreciation of the phenomenon known as music. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) KNOWLEDGE: SCOPE AND LIMITS Can we know anything? What can we know? How can we know it? Various historical theories of knowledge. Some contemporary beliefs and the assumptions that underlie them. Elementary logic and probability theory. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) KNOWLEDGE, SHELTER What does home mean to you? What are the differences between house and home? This course explores the nature of human shelter from the Paleolithic period up to the present day in cultures all around the world. From the huts and farmhouses of pre-urban cultures, to the luxury high-rises and tenements of contemporary cities, we will examine a diverse array of architectural spaces that people call home. Issues to be discussed include social justice, disaster housing, environmental sustainability, and the new urbanism.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) KNOWLEDGE, TRUTH AND WISDOM

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

Before the pyramids and before the Greeks and Romans there existed an array of cultures which examined the nature of self and of mind: how and what they perceive and can know, how they are linked with the material world and with subtle energy. Using some of the tools of at least one of these civilizations which have survived in writing, orally and in teaching traditions, we will explore some of the pathways they suggest to broaden the context in which western civilization has evolved. We will proceed on the assumption that an ultimate purpose of knowledge is liberation from illusion, leading to right action: more productive, globally harmonious, informed, fulfilling action ­ in short, contextually and historically relevant ethical action. The practice of yoga will provide the starting-point for this exploration. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) MASS MEDIA AND KNOWL EDGE This course is about the information the mass media provides to Canadians and the effect this has on our ability to know and understand the world. More specifically, we will examine the limits and biases of corporate controlled mass media and how the mass media form, fashion and limit our knowledge of contemporary social issues. In a word, we are going to work at media literacy in this course by developing a critical and informed understanding of mass media techniques, methods and content and how this constructs our knowledge of reality. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) MYTHS AS A SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE The goal of this course will be to understand myth as a concept as well as to explore particular myths from a variety of historical and cultural contexts with the aim of understanding how myths function as repositories and transmitters of knowledge. We will examine the function of myth in the formation of culture as well as in the individual`s search for meaning. We will investigate different theories, both ancient and contemporary, of myth interpretation with particular emphasis placed on the knowledge which is transmitted by myth. Finally we will examine the use and interpretation of myths in our own contemporary context(s) in order to begin an exploration of what our own use and interpretation of myths can help us learn about ourselves. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) ORIENTALISM: WESTERN KNOWLEDGE OF THE EAS T What comes to mind when you hear the word the Orient, or the Far East? This course examines the repertoire of images, concepts, and stereotypes that make up Western knowledge of the East. At the same time it examines the socio-historical circumstances that led to the creation of such knowledge. Students will learn to identify Orientalist forms of knowledge in films and literary works. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) REEL THEATRE: THEATR E, FILM AND KNOWLEDGE This course will examine how stage plays are adapted to the medium of cinema and the impact of those films on our appreciation and understanding of drama as a cultural reflection of society and the times. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) SCIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE This course will examine the scientific way of arriving at knowledge and consider whether scientific method is the best, (or even the only way) to know our world and ourselves. We will look at the main assumptions behind the scientific method; consider those assumptions in their historical context; and criticize their adequacy. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) SCIENCE, PSEUDOSCIENCE AND SUPERSTITION How can one distinguish between legitimate, reliable forms of knowledge, and exciting though deceptive claims? We will examine various claims that have been put forward in recent years and taken seriously by intelligent, educated people who have nevertheless fallen into traps and try to discover a path to critical thinking.

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

Knowledge is a tool with which one seeks to achieve something ­ understanding, a sense of control, etc. It can be used and abused. Self-knowledge teaches people how to recognize how they use knowledge. We will assume that the purpose of knowledge is action: better, more productive, more harmonious, gainful, fulfilling action. With knowledge comes response-ability, the ability to answer for one`s actions, to explain them to oneself and put them into a larger context. In this course, students act on knowledge. Through the practice of yoga, students will acquire new knowledge of self, along with the ability to apply it productively. Some old knowledge will be accessed in a new way. Possibly the only way to talk about mind is through metaphor: paying minute attention to the workings of the body in yoga provides unparalleled metaphor. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) SEX AND SEXUALITY Sexual behaviour is fundamental to human existence, yet it remains shrouded in mystery to many people due to lack of knowledge and fear of indecency. What exactly are sex and sexuality? How is knowledge of sexuality and sexual relations determined and examined? What are some of the main sexual concerns for young adults and people worldwide? This course will examine the answers to these questions and more from various disciplines and perspectives, with an emphasis on values, cross-cultural diversity, responsible sexual behaviour and selfawareness. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) SEXUAL STYLES, SEXUAL JOURNEYS This course provides an in-depth consideration of various modes-personal ­philosophical, psychological, and sociological ­ of acquiring knowledge about the fundamental questions of human sexuality: Why do we behave sexually? How do we behave sexually? How should we behave sexually? The course will examine traditional approaches and current theories in exploring these questions. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) SHAPING THE FUTURE Based on the work of Montreal philosopher Horst Hutter, this course focuses on five time-honoured strategies of self-overcoming: 1) periodic retreats into solitude for quiet reflection; 2) the cultivation of challenging friendships; 3) proactive reading and introspective writing; 4) close attention to nutrition (understood expansively to include food and drink as well as air, sound, and much else, including images--such as those viewed on the nightly news); and, 5) the physical--and perhaps metaphysical-- activity of dance. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) SONIC TRUTHS Music from Thrash Metal to Mozart is a significant element in our understanding of the world. People play and listen to music without really knowing what and how they are learning. This course aims to move beyond the charms of music and submit it, and our relationship with it, to analysis. Sonic Truths will deal with the history of human music-making and its role in different societies. We will begin by examining contemporary popular music and the relationship between musical culture and social identity in Western society. We will also look at the making, marketing and hearing of hit songs in twentieth-century North America. The course will examine four types of musical authority, social status and relationships between men and women. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) STUDIES IN VISUAL CULTURE Visual Culture is a relatively new field of study which draws on ideas from cultural studies, art and art history, sociology and anthropology, among other disciplines. Visual Culture is a way of studying the contemporary or historical world through photographs, pictures, and images, rather than through texts and words. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) THE STRUGGLE OF IDEAS IN MODERN DRAMA In this course we will debate contrasting sociological schools of thought or ways of knowing in relationship to three great plays of modern drama: Arthur Miller`s Death of a Salesman, Henrik Ibsen`s Hedda Gabler, and George Bernard Shaw`s Major Barbara. In this course a variety of innovative teaching techniques will be used, including knowledge and interpretive gaming and improvisation. The teacher will spend time in the computer lab to help students with their writing to make sure students come to class with the best possible essays they can possibly produce.

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

How knowledge is acquired, classified, communicated, and how it is and should be applied, with special emphasis on the analysis of dialectical and formal logic in human thinking. The social context of knowledge: philosophy, economics, politics and culture. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) UNDERSTANDING WAR TH ROUGH FILM This course will examine how and what we learn about war through viewing feature films. How do we decipher fact from fiction in movies? How do filmmakers influence our imagination about the nature of war and our interpretation of specific wars? And how do we process that knowledge on the cognitive, emotional and subconscious levels? 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) VISIONS OF THE MEDIA A course in Media Literacy which involves a critical analysis of the form, content, and function of both the print and electronic media in North America. This course attempts to create understanding of the enormous influence of mass information, mass persuasion, and mass culture in our society. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) THE WISDOM OF CUISIN E This course will explore the various ways in which humans have learned to meet their nutritional needs while examining the role of smell and taste in our acquisition of knowledge. In the process, students will learn to recognize, define, categorize and analyze culinary wisdom through an examination of cuisines from societies around the world. Major historical developments in agriculture, trade, cultural contacts and cuisines will be explored for their impact on our current understanding, appreciation and consumption of food. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) WOMEN, POWER AND KNOWLEDGE In this course we will learn to think critically about the production of knowledge about women in various contexts. This will involve exploring key concepts which influence how we think about women, such as: sex, gender, race, culture, age, ethnicity, and class. We will learn to examine our assumptions critically, but not blamefully, by unearthing the sources of our knowledge (and blind spots) about women. We will ask questions which help us to understand how our knowledge is always only partial and often biased: who speaks, who listens, and who decides whose perspectives count? This will necessarily involve questioning our knowledge about men and masculinity as well. In particular, this course will teach students how to find and listen to dissident voices which productively challenge our knowledge of what it means to be a woman or man in the world today. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) WOMEN AND WAR Our knowledge about war has been shaped for centuries by men's experiences; in fact, war in most cultures has been seen as the quintessentially male activity. Women's participation and support for war have been largely ignored, and women have long been linked more with peace than war. This course will examine recent research which focuses on women's experiences and questions the construction, use, and validity of these deeply-rooted beliefs that link men to war and women to peace. This study will demonstrate how our knowledge is often biased, partial and rooted in a social context, and provide students with a more complete understanding of the problem of war and of the role that women's studies has played in expanding and reshaping our knowledge. 345-101-MQ (3.1.3) WORKING IN CANADA Work will probably occupy close to a third of most of our adult lives. There`s very little else that any of us will do that so centrally affects our choices about such key issues as where and how we live, what we value and what we can and cannot do as individuals and with others. What kind of work do you want when you graduate? How much money do you expect to earn? What kind of boss do you want? Do you want to be the boss? Do you need a union? What do you need to realize your dream career in life? Given the evolution and transformation of work in this country, can these dreams be realized? These are the kind of questions we`ll be asking in this course. How do your answers fit into the reality of working in Canada? In sum, through a better knowledge and understanding of work in Canada we will develop a richer sense of ourselves and the country we are building for ourselves and future generations.

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

Unlike generic musical terms such as traditional, folk or popular, World Music must be rooted in strong ethnic elements. The term world music first entered the commercial marketplace in the 1980`s, initially referring to sounds recordings that fused Western popular music with indigenous music from around the world. Since the 1990`s, new technologies have made the recording and distribution of indigenous ethnic music far more accessible, and musician-performers have increasingly been in demand to tour with their original material, and thus, the popularity of world music has soared. The study of world music offers insight into both the cultural mosaics of distinctive societies as well as some of the cultural conflicts inherent in this era of increasing globalization.

Humanities: Ethical Issues

Students at John Abbott College normally take their Ethical Issues B-Block course after completion of their two ABlock Humanities courses. The B-Block courses build on the concepts and skills developed in the earlier courses. All of these sections deal with ethical issues and aim at aiding the student in making connections between these issues and his/her program of studies. These courses allow students to develop the skills needed to apply critical thinking to the values associated with diverse issues they will face at university, at work or in daily life.

Ethical Issues for Pre -University (345-210-AB)

345-210-AB (3.0.3) ETHICS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS Different sources of ethical guidelines for behaviour ­ including religion, philosophy, and the social sciences ­ are examined in order to discover whether there is any basis for universal morals, or whether it all depends on culture or personal choice. Current social issues will be explored through group debates. 345-210-AB (3.0.3) ETHICS IN FICTION This course explores the ways ethical issues such as pollution, technology, and personal responsibility are presented in works of fiction from Greek myth and drama to contemporary novels and plays. 345-210-AB (3.0.3) ETHICS OF TRAVEL This course will examine some important ethical issues related to travel. These include: the financial, cultural and ecological implications of travel and tourism. In all countries of the world we can find issues of rights violations whether of humans, animals or the environment. Should we give weight to these issues as we plan our vacations and trips from home? How can we travel more ethically? Should we want to travel more ethically? The course aims to make students aware of these ethical issues and to provide appropriate analytical tools, as well as to allow them the opportunity to consider and debate such questions. 345-210-AB (3.0.3) MORAL CONTROVERSIES IN SOCIETY The purpose of this course is to improve the student`s ability to assess controversial moral issues in contemporary society in order to arrive at informed, well-founded and strongly supported positions relating to them. Students will be required to construct sound arguments in defence of the conclusions they reach, as well as to communicate their points of view effectively. Subjects for critical examination will include persistent social issues like abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, and freedom of speech, as well as more recent moral dilemmas like reproductive technologies, drug testing, consumption patterns, world hunger, and population growth. 345-210-AB (3.0.3) PREJUDICE This course examines some of the psychological, social, and political effects of prejudice on the lives of people judged as undesirable in any society. Using contemporary and historical examples of oppression, the student will examine how prejudice functions to normalize distorted facts and opinions even in people of good will. While personally opposed to prejudice, an individual may enjoy economic and cultural privilege as a member of a dominant group. The social implications of these ethical issues as well as the benefits of diverse points of view and knowledge available in integrated or multicultural societies will also be explored.

Ethics and Aesthetics (345-212-AB)

345-212-AB (3.0.3) DEBATING ETHICAL ISSUES IN DRAMA Using Arthur Miller`s The Crucible. Tennessee Williams` A Streetcar Named Desire, and Rolf Hochhuth`s The Deputy, we will be debating the following ethical issues: freedom of speech, sexual discrimination, and the responsibility of the individual to take a principled position in cases of war and oppression. In this course the classroom itself will become a kind of theatre as students act out the various conflicting ethical positions that emerge from these works of drama. 345-212-AB (3.0.3) IMAGE ETHICS This course will examine images and ethics. Students will be introduced to issues such as: ethical behaviour on the part of creators or visual media; and public perception of a lack of ethics in photography, films, tv and advertising. Students will learn to assess what is artistic and editorial freedom while considering the rights of subjects ­ questions of consent, infringement of privacy and objectivity within the documentary film form. Problems of misrepresentation, particularly as it affects minority communities and women in fiction films, will be explored. 345-212-AB (3.0.3) VALUES AND THE ARTS Modernists desired to cast aside tradition in favour of the creation of the new and uncorrupted. Post-modernists claim that project has collapsed in our endlessly contemporary culture. By means of images from the visual arts of the last two hundred years, we will examine modernist aims to re-evaluated art, society and life itself, and look at postmodern culture: art after the end of art.

Social Issues (345-213-AB)

345-213-AB (3.0.3) ANIMALS AND SOCIETY This course investigates the many relationships between human beings and animals. We use animals as household pets and care for them in shelters, but also control them in disturbing fashion in factory farms, laboratory experiments, and entertainment centers (such as zoos and circuses). How ethical, then, is our treatment of animals? Are we at all justified in using animals to serve our (human) interests? We pursue these questions critically, reflecting throughout on the notion of equality between humans and animals. 345-212-AB (3.0.3) COMPLEX EMERGENCIES: WAR, GENOCIDE AND THE HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE This course explores the consequences, causes and ethical issues related to complex emergencies and humanitarian "disasters". Students will explore the changing nature of intrastate conflict, the phenomenon of genocide, and the myriad reasons for extreme violence in civil wars. In addition, perspectives on the moral permissibility of humanitarian intervention, the Responsibility to Protect doctrine, and the ethics of warfare will be analyzed. Furthermore, students in this course will critically examine the actions of non-governmental organizations and aid agencies in disaster zones, the possible politicization and militarization of aid, the moral controversies associated with prosecuting criminals during wartime, and the role of the media in shaping our knowledge about conflict. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) CURRENT ETHICAL ISSUES The subject matter of this course varies according to student interest from areas such as: racism, pollution, sex and society, drugs, the future of Quebec, the relationship between law and morality, etc. The course is designed to give the student a basis for the normative analysis of various ethical issues. It aims to arouse awareness, to challenge the intellect and imagination of the student in reading and thinking about various ethical issues in contemporary society. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) ETHICAL QUESTIONS ON RACISM What is racism`? What makes an action racist`? This course examines these questions by looking at how racism has manifested in our society. In particular, we will discuss various historical cases of racial oppression in Canada. We will subsequently use that understanding to consider some contemporary questions and controversies regarding racism.

CEGEP JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE 345-213-AB (3.0.3) GODS, MONSTERS, AND STRANGERS

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

What are monsters? What do they show (monstrare) the world? How have monsters been constructed in history and how are they being defined today? This course will critically engage the history of monsters in myths, religious texts, and non-religious traditions as a means to examine the construction of otherness in the contemporary world. What do monsters tells us about the ethical stances often taken in relation to others, or strangers? Do monsters make us secure the system of boundaries that surround us? Religious texts often demonize monsters as a threat to rigid boundaries. Yet some texts deify the monster as a revelation of the holy. At other times, the monster is both demonized and deified, showing a deep ambivalence about the place of monsters and otherness in the world. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) GOOD AND EVIL Since Socrates, and especially since the Enlightenment, social thinkers have repeatedly told us that evil, as such, does not exist. Human beings, they argue, are either inherently good or inherently nothing--that is blank slates which await the imprint of culture. That which people have traditionally referred to as evil is in fact, they claim, merely a form of ignorance. If it is true that education can put an end to evil, how do we go about educating the human race? Conversely, if the human capacity for evil is here to stay, how do we make the best of it? This course is an introduction to some of these timeless ethical questions. But it is also a survey of the historically specific answers provided by moral philosophers. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP What do you love? Why? How does this love manifest itself in your thoughts, words, and deeds? What does it mean to say that someone is your friend? What does that bond entail? Are there different kinds of love and friendship? What are they? What distinguishes them from one another? Human beings have been asking questions of this kind for thousands of years. This course is an introduction to some of these timeless questions. But it is also a survey of the historically-specific answers. This course is meant to be a general introduction to the field of ethics, centering upon the West`s centuries old preoccupation with love and friendship. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) ME, YOU AND US: THE ETHICS OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS When confronted with an issue in a relationship, what factors do you consider? What is the weight of your own needs when considering a course of action? What about the needs of others? By drawing on ethical principles from Eastern and Western philosophies, this course will examine ethical issues that arise in many types of human interaction, such as the relationship with one`s own self, romantic partners, family members, friends and society. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) MEDIA MESSAGES AND SOCIAL ISSUES This course provides the opportunity to examine the relationships between social issues and the mass media. Students will explore television, film, advertising, music, news, and popular culture to see how media representations shape our global culture through their constructed realities, and will also assess the impact of converging communications and entertainment technologies. Critical perspectives gained in this course will lead students to the goal of media literacy. Methodology includes short lectures, video, films, and media analysis discussions. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) SOCIAL ISSUES: PEACE SEMINAR This course gives students a forum to bring together their understanding of peace in an integrative manner. The course will be divided into modules, including: literature and philosophy; globalization, cultural colonization and marketing; history and politics of current wars. Priority for this course will be given to Peace Studies students, with remaining places open to students not pursuing the peace studies certificate. 345-213-AB (3.0.3) SOCIAL ISSUES THROUGH LITERATURE Literature can help us focus on the elements and consequences of some of the social issues which dominate our world. By examining the plot, characters, and attitudes revealed in the assigned texts, we will look at societal attitudes towards race, war and violence, health and health care, governmental intervention in private lives, and the extent and nature of individual responsibility towards others.

Science and Society (345-214-AB)

345-214-AB (3.0.3) BIOETHICS Bioethics is a rapidly-evolving, dynamic field concerned with issues, conflicts and controversies about how we should treat living beings. Among the issues discussed will be: ethics and scientific research, ethics and health care, allocation of scarce resources, fundamental rights, legal rights, conflicts of interest, conflicts of values, conflicts between cultural viewpoints, autonomy versus paternalism, conflicts between rights, conflict between obligations, the search for universal ethical principles in this field, whether health care or scientific research should be run as businesses, the impact of bioethics on the individual and society as a whole. 345-214-AB (3.0.3) CRITICAL THINKING FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM: ETHICAL ISSUES IN SCIENCE Critical thinkers reflect on and analyze their thinking; curiosity and creativity accompany critical thinkers who, while paying attention to others` opinions, discover their own path. Throughout the semester students will work on becoming aware of and improving their thinking, reading and writing skills. Simultaneously, and using these developing skills, we shall examine several different ethical issues presented in science and scientific endeavours, covering a wide variety of topics from the use of animals in science; techniques and funding of research; and bioethical issues like reproductive technology and gene research. 345-214-AB (3.0.3) ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS For over a century now, our attempts at mastering nature have caused extensive pollution, resource depletion, and suffering for countless human and non-human beings. Is there something fundamentally wrong with "the system" (our values, institutions, technologies)? We examine this question critically by tracing the evolution of anthropocentrism (or "human-centeredness") and documenting some of its most problematical expressions, such as the development of military technologies and economic globalization. Topics may also include animal rights, the growth of cities, the security of the food supply, and challenges to mainstream medicine. Throughout, we seek to determine how rightful it is to use nature for human projects. 345-214-AB (3.0.3) ETHICS IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Science and technology are not neutral forces in society. By seeking to understand and control nature, they offer hopes of progress and freedom for the average citizen. However, they also pose serious ethical dilemmas or problems, affecting the rights of human and non-human beings. This course will: discuss the values of science; describe the relationship between science, technology, and economic /political power; and identify the various ethical problems associated with scientific research and techno-logical development. We will explore the issues conceptually, historically, and through several case studies (energy, military production, medical practice and genetic engineering, agriculture, the space program, computers). 345-214-AB (3.03.) SCIENCE AND SPIRIT In this course we explore the moral and ethical implications of one of the greatest puzzles of our time: Can science and spirit coexist or are they mutually exclusive, compatible or contradictory? We will initially review and assess more traditional models that leaders in the fields of science and philosophy espouse about this important yet divisive dilemma. With that background we will then examine some of the new works and theories by current scientists and philosophers, PhDs in physics and genetics, experts in quantum theory and mathematics, renowned scholars and mystics, bestselling authors, and award-winning international think-tanks and foundations that champion avant-garde interpretations and cutting-edge paradigms. Throughout the semester we will analyze how these various positions on this age old question raise ethical choices in the new millennium. 345-214-AB (3.0.3) THE SUSTAINABLE CAMPUS This course was developed by JAC students to provide meaningful work and course credit for over-extended but under-engaged students to research, produce, contest and apply knowledge and codes of ethics in a practical campus sustainability project. We ask, How do College decisions about what we learn and how we interact with the environment (programs and purchasing, hiring and firing, governance and garbage) affect the broader human and species communities in Montréal, Canada, and our planet as a whole? What are the impacts of our career paths and lifestyles upon our environment, community, and conscience? Our challenge is then to devise and implement concrete measures on campus to transform the nature of our relationship to the natural world, our community, and our economy.

COURSE CALENDAR | Humanities

Scientists have been socially constructed to be moral giants and base demons, the saviours of the world and the world`s nemesis, while dramatists have imaginatively created the persona of scientists to serve their own political purposes. This course will explore the moral ambiguities surrounding the role of the scientist. Using three plays, Galileo, Copenhagen, and An Enemy of the People, we will explore the interface between science and drama and the social issue debates that result from that interaction.

COURSE CALENDAR | Complementary Courses

Communication makes us human: whether at school, work or play we are constantly absorbing information, asking questions and trying to make sense of and share our discoveries. We often take this feature of our experience for granted, not realizing that social interaction and communication are skills which can be studied and improved upon to enhance the quality of our lives. This course exposes students to the patterns of communication and social interaction and helps them appreciate the potential for personal development that may follow. Topics covered in this course include: relevant components of the processes of human interaction and communication; self image, self confidence, and their characteristics; interpersonal perception; verbal and nonverbal communication; obstacles and suggestions for enhancement; decision making and problem solving; work groups; leadership and membership; assertive and compliant behaviours and their consequences.

Religion

370-DBA-03 (3.0.3) MAGIC, RELIGION AND SCIENCE This course examines the nature of faith in magic, religion and science. It explores the development of Western religion in terms of the suppression of local cultures, of women, of magic and the irrational, and the subsequent expression of religion by the cult of science (Scientism). Student will be introduced to some different explanations for and practical experiences with various forms of divination. In addition, depending on student`s program and her or his personal interests, each will explore a topic in either the rationality, the ideology, or the iconography of magic, religion and science.

Sociology

387-DBA-AB (3.0.3) CRIME AND DEVIANCE The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the topic of Deviance and Crime.

This course enables the students, through lectures and role -playing in the Green Revolution Game to make decisions, which will have positive and negative effects on the environment as they try to have their farm survive. Through this decision making process students will learn how industrialization impacts the environment. In addition they will become more aware of how society and the environment interact. The essence of this course is to complement the students` other studies and attempt to provide a sociological understanding of how to become an active citizen with a more in-depth global perspective. 387-DBC-03 (3.0.3) CULTURE AND MEDIA: THROUGH THE LENS OF MUSIC Students explore the concepts of sociology through the lens of music. We consider the ways in which music not only reflects social structures, identities and ideologies, but actively help to construct them. From discussing the role of art & creativity in contemporary society, to examining the role that technology and corporations play in the pop music industry. Students use sociology to gain new insights into the multi-faceted role of music in our society. We analyze musical sound and social meaning, the place of music in creating social bonds, challenging social norms and creating opportunities for change from local to global. We use a critical perspective to study the role of fan culture in creating celebrities and idols and throughout the course we use actual pop music examples!

Grievance Policy

The grievance policy exists to help a student or group of students resolve complaints about or conflicts with teachers. Grievances may include, but are not limited to, issues such as the following: Treatment of students Coverage of course material Adherence to the printed course outline Adherence to College policies

IN F O RMA L L EV EL

Dealing directly with the Teacher: The student should attempt, if possible, to resolve the issue directly with the teacher. Seeking the Chairperson's Assistance: If the issue remains unresolved, the matter should be brought to the attention of the department chairperson. It is the chairperson`s responsibility (or that of a department delegate) to help resolve the complaint/conflict by acting as a mediator and proposing solutions.

F OR MA L L EV EL

If no agreement is reached at the Informal Level, the student may file a formal grievance by completing the appropriate form available at the offices of the Academic Dean, Associate Deans, SUJAC or the Registrar. The Associate Deans are responsible for hearing grievances and reaching decisions regarding the complaints/ conflicts. They shall treat each case on its individual merits, and will assure confidentiality. Formal grievances may be submitted at any time but not later than: March 15 for grievances arising in the preceding Fall semester October 15 for grievances arising in the preceding Winter and Summer semesters

Within five working days of receipt of the Grievance Form, the Associate Dean will notify the teacher and the student involved as to the time, place, and date of interviews which may be required. The Associate Dean will gather information pertaining to the complaint from all parties involved as quickly as possible. This will be done by interviewing the student, the teacher, as well as any witnesses. If both the student and teacher agree, the Associate Dean may hold a meeting between both parties. After all pertinent information has been gathered; a written decision will be made and submitted to the student and the teacher within five working days. The Associate Dean will retain a confidential record of the grievance and its resolution for a period of five years. It is the Associate Dean`s responsibility to see to it that his/her decision has been implemented and is being respected.

Right of Appeal

Both the student and the teacher have the right to appeal the decision and may do so by submitting a written request to the Academic Dean.

Late Registration

Students who do not register during the regular registration period will be considered subject to space availability. Students will be asked to pay a late registration fee and courses will not be guaranteed. Contact the Registrar`s Office for information.

Semesters

An academic year is composed of 2 semesters - Fall and Winter. Each semester is 15 weeks in length.

The Business Administration Co-op Program may have a different academic calendar due to stage requirements.

Sexual Harassment

The College has endorsed a policy on sexual harassment and a set of procedures for handling complaints of this nature. Sexual Harassment is defined as follows: Persistent unwanted attention of a sexually-oriented nature that interferes with the performance or environment of an individual, and/or Implied or expressed promise of reward for complying with a sexually-oriented request, and/or Implied or expressed threat of reprisal, actual reprisal, or the denial of opportunity for refusal to comply with a sexually- oriented request.

This definition is broad enough to include various forms of harassment (leering, inappropriate questions or remarks, fondling, phone calls at home, requests for dates, subtle or overt pressures for sexual activity, etc.) At the same time, the definition underlines the two essential features of harassment: the sexual attention is persistent and unwanted, and/or involves the use of a position of power over another person. For further information on sexual harassment and/or how to proceed with a complaint, see the handout entitled WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE HARASSED, available in Student Services H-148.

Social Data ­ Change of Address

S TUDENT S ERVICES

The Student Services Division provides comprehensive programs, activities and services which directly support the College`s educational mission and respond to student needs. Focusing on the enhancement of student learning and personal development, Student Services is also concerned with the general quality of student life on campus and student engagement. Student Services Departments are located along Main Street in the Casgrain Centre, Herzberg Building and Stewart Hall.

Orientation

Orientation introduces new students to the College and assists them in making a smooth transition from high school. Orientation activities help students learn about the campus facilities, services, activities and resources available to them. Students are required to participate in a special August program, which includes a session on strategies for success in college, campus tour, Student Services multi-media show, and an opportunity to meet staff members and ask questions. Students receive their Agenda books and ID cards. They can also buy their books and parking permits. During the first week of classes, various social events are held to facilitate integration into campus life.

Academic Advising

The primary purpose of Academic Advising is to provide students with accurate information and to assist students to realize educational opportunities available to them. Academic Advisors encourage students to make informed decisions regarding education, career and life goals by relating the students` interests, skills, abilities, and values to careers, higher education and the world of work. Advisors also maintain a valuable link between students and the College by providing information about students` needs, preferences and performance to program committees, program chairs, and academic management for use in making institutional decisions and policy. Academic Advisors work with students individually on an appointment basis. Confidentiality and friendly, personalized attention is assured. Advisors deal mainly with three basic areas of information:

CO LL EG E I N F ORMA TI O N

Academic advisors help students select a course of study to meet diploma requirements while respecting the individual`s personal, educational and career goals. In addition they provide information about the college`s policies, procedures, resources and programs.

U NIV ER S IT Y I N FO RMA TI O N

Academic Advisors inform students about university entrance requirements and help with the completion of university and scholarship application forms.

CA RE ER I N F OR MA T I O N

Academic Advisors assist students to relate educational programs to their career goals. Because the CEGEP system places the responsibility for meeting diploma requirements on students, all students are encouraged to meet an Academic Advisor at least once each semester.

University and Career Information Centre

The University and Career Information Centre is a centralized resource centre that contains a wide variety of information on college, university and career information. Located in Student Services it contains a large collection of university and college calendars, directories of educational institutions, directories of subjects and programs, up to date information on employment prospects and job search techniques as well as access to Internet resources on university information.
