LIST OF COURSES

The Creative Arts Literature and Languages Program at John Abbott College is the study of all aspects of human creativity from many different perspectives. In addition to the compulsory foundation courses in the Universe of the Arts 1, 2, and 3 and the concluding Integrating Seminar, students choose production courses in fields such as animation, filmmaking, digital media, darkroom and digital photography, radio and television, video production, creative writing, journalism, foreign languages, painting and drawing, and theatre.

Students choose cultural studies courses from disciplines such as art history, dramaturgy, film studies, literature, media studies, philosophy, and religion, history of languages.
This program’s greatest advantage is the breadth and depth of skills, knowledge and experience students acquire.
