Special topic courses — Spring term

CENL 1991 - Z (3 CR)

What does it mean to belong to the Town of Sackville? What might we point to that encapsulates that identity? How do we best express who we are as a community in the 21st century? This course is an exploration of the themes related to community and identity, framed against creative practice and artistic process. In exploring these themes, it engages in a place-focused, interdisciplinary and intergenerational dialogue about the ways in which Sackville forms a place for the creative expression of identity and community values. In exploring issues of identity and community, students will have opportunities to think through contemporary theoretical and practical models for what it means to belong to a place.
PSYC 4991 - Z (3 CR)

Prereq: Third-year Standing; 6 credits from PSYC at the 2000 level; or permission of the instructor
This course examines dream-related theories from multiple psychological disciplines. Through discussions and presentations, the class will evaluate the empirical evidence related to these theories, and connect dreaming to other mental abilities (for example, memory, personality, and creativity). Students will apply their acquired knowledge to analyze their everyday (or every night⁠) experiences. Dreams are among the strangest and mysterious human experiences. Why do we dream? How do we dream? Are dreams useful? Do dreams have hidden meanings? (Format: Seminar)
SOSC 4991 - X (3 CR)

Prereq: Permission of the instructor
This course is designed to allow students engaged in an approved internship to join others in understanding the scholarship of applied learning, which refers to learning experiences that get students thinking, collaborating, and communicating, and ultimately having them engage with and contribute to the world around them. These learning experiences take place in a range of contexts, including in the classroom, the workplace, the community, and on the land, enabling learners to integrate theoretical knowledge, as well as personal, practical, and professional skills through individual and group reflective practices.
VMCS 2991 - Z (3 CR)

Prereq: 3 credits from VMCS 1201, 1301; or permission of the instructor
This course adopts an approach grounded in cultural studies to introduce students to key theories, concepts, and issues in intercultural communication, which is defined as the transmission and reception of verbal and non-verbal messages across languages and cultures. It sheds light on how cultural differences and variables impact communication, reveals the common barriers to intercultural exchange, and reflects on identity and otherness, cultural filters and templates, and the relationship between culture, media, and language. Examples are drawn from textual, visual, and material cultures of the past, as well as contemporary mass media contexts (Format: Lecture/Tutorial 3 hours).
UNST 4991 - Z (3 CR)

Prereq: Third-year standing; or permission of the instructor
This course focuses on giving students the knowledge and skills they need to be effective leaders, whether at Mount Allison or in their lives and careers after Mount Allison. Students will read about and repeatedly practice concepts and skills that are necessary to influence, involve, and inspire others. These skills include deep listening, building trusting relationships, functioning in and contributing to effective teams, making good group decisions, and being creative and innovative, all done in partnership with others. One of the keys to the experiential learning process used in this course is active reflection, in groups and individually. Active involvement in continual in-class activities and in a team project are other mandatory elements of the course.
