Special Project Courses
College Ten also offers special project courses every year, each with a collaborative final project that contributes to the College's theme of Social Justice and Community. To learn more about which College Ten courses are currently available, check out the College Ten Course Catalogue.
For the past few years, College Nine and College Ten has offered a 2-credit course called Expressive Arts and Social Justice, which provided students the opportunity to explore ways to use expressive arts to deepen their personal awareness and educate themselves on social justice topics. Student's designed and hosted a showcase for the various mediums of art they created, highlighting a social issue of their choice. Issues ranged from violence against women, cultural identity, to the rights of Indigenous communities. To learn more about this course, visit the Expressive Arts page or scroll to watch the video at the bottom of this page.
During Spring '12 , an Israel Palestine course was offered, where students discussed politics, conflict, and cultural competency in a peer-facilitated seeting. At the end of the course, the students created a mural to promote peace and understanding.
In Spring '13, College Nine and College Ten students also worked closely with Oxfam America and New York artist, Diana Gilon, to design and create an entrance mural for College Nine that would represent our sister College's theme.
