Opportunity to Study Abroad in Sweden Offered by Fischler School

NSU’s Fischler School of Education and Human Services’ Interdisciplinary Arts Program is offering three credit hours for a summer “International Arts & Culture Infusion” study abroad opportunity in Oskarshamn, Sweden. The session will run from July 26 to Aug. 9, 2009.

The study abroad course is open to all NSU graduate students (pending approval from their program or center) and those who wish to take the course as non-credit seeking students.

This course runs in conjunction with a cultural exchange workshop for Swedish and American teenagers in the artistic city of Oskarshamn, presented by the Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts. Lovewell stresses creative problem solving, critical thinking, and authentic experience as students work together to create an original interdisciplinary arts production.

The “International Arts & Culture Infusion” summer course facilitates expansive and creative thinking in students, artists, teachers, schools, and ultimately ripples out helping to create a true international cultural community.

Participants will:

  • Follow the development of the creative process through the opening night of an original bi-lingual interdisciplinary musical theatre production.
  • Explore Swedish, Scandinavian, and European arts and culture.
  • Interact with Swedish and American artists, students, and Lovewell staff.
  • Observe arts education and participate in hands-on creative exercises.
  • Receive optional course credit from NSU.

For additional credit, participants may also opt to complete an artistic project in their field in conjunction with the two-week trip.

For more information, please contact Interdisciplinary Arts Program Director David Spangler at 954-262-8363 or davids@nsu.nova.edu or visit www.SchoolofEd.nova.edu/iap.
