Project and Performance Courses in the Arts

Colby College has long recognized the importance of the integration of teaching and scholarship on the part of faculty. Some courses in the Arts have fully integrated project-based learning into their curriculum. This emphasis has enhanced significantly the creative ability of our students. Many Colby courses in the arts include signficant performance or project-based learning components. Some courses are designed around one extensive performance or project. Others include these as a significant component of the course. Some representative courses are listed below.
