The course will explore Graphic Narratives as genre, covering broad themes of Fantasy, Magic Realism, and Feminism.

First, we will explore the different forms that Graphic Narratives take, including books and web comics, alongside how they differ from super-hero comics and Japanese manga. During this time, we will also discuss how reading and interpreting images affects our understanding of the texts.

After discussing Graphic Narratives as a genre, we will read several examples that touch on themes of Fantasy & Magical Realism, each with a unique and distinctly feminine perspective. Students will consider topics such as how Fantasy and Popular Culture influence our everyday lives, how authors portray women in this genre, and how the genre of Graphic Narratives informs our conversations and thinking about these topics....

This course will offer a wide-ranging yet targeted survey of an emergent geo-political focal point of the 21st century, the Arctic region.

While climate change and rising sea-levels have worried many from an environmental perspective, these developments have also opened new and lucrative economic possibilities, especially for the oil-prospecting, shipping and even tourism industries.

These various components will be explored in the course: the geographical context; the history of Arctic exploration; the parallels with Antarctic scientific cooperation; the impact of climate change; the importance of oil and gas deposits; the shipping industry; the changing role of Arctic Council; Scandinavian interests in the area; the role of the big powers, even including China; and 21st century scenarios for this vital emergent region....

Please be aware, you must enroll as a full time student at The American College of Norway and that means that you must study 5 of our courses (Totaling 15 credit). We will communicate with you to discuss which of our other courses you would like to include.

And this is where social entrepreneurs can pick up the slack. Throughout this course students will be identifying social issues that they feel passionate about and learn how these issues might be rectified using social entrepreneurship. All students will create a business plan for a fictitious social venture that in some way addresses a social issue.... [-]
