CSP99 Experiencing the Arts
This course is designed to expose students to the arts, to broaden their cultural horizons, and to instill in them a desire to expand their knowledge of and attention to the arts. In addition, the course is designed to prepare students for life-long learning, for engaging in their communities, and for having the basis for further exploration in the field of the arts. Students may acquire one semester unit of credit for attending eight on-campus events during a semester. Students will select these events from a list of events compiled each year by the Arts Committee and posted on Moodle; at least two of the events attended must combine an arts presentation with a lecture or discussion by the artist or a faculty member (referred to as a starred event). A short (500 word) two-page paper is due on the last day of class.
- This 1-unit course is graded CR/NC only and will not meet any specific Major/Minor or Core requirements.
- Students may take this 1-unit course for up to two semesters, for a maximum of 2 units being applied toward graduation.
- In order to receive credit a student must attend and provide proper documentation (see below) for a minimum of 6 regular events and 2 starred events (8 events in total). In addition, a two-page (minimum 500 words) reflection paper must be turned in electronically by the last day of classes.
- Starred events normally have the main character (writer, director, producer, etc.) offer a discussion; talk; or Q&A, either before or following the event. In order to get starred credit, a student must stay for the entire event and either the pre or post discussion.
- All students are required to attend a course orientation. Failure to attend an orientation session may result in being dropped from the class.
- Only those events listed on the CSP 99 Moodle page are eligible for course credit.
Rules and Guidelines
Each event will have a CSP 99 Monitor present who will hand out “attendance tickets” at each event. The monitor is identified with an orange Oxy T-shirt, standing on the right side of any venue. The tickets are used for recording attendance only.
To receive credit for attending an event identified as a CSP99 event:
- Arrive early to every event; pick up an event ticket from the attending Monitor.
- Latecomers will not be given a ticket.
- Remain seated for the entirety of the event (including pre and post discussions).
- Locate and return your completed event ticket to the attending Monitor.
- CSP99 event tickets can only be submitted to the monitor. Tickets submitted through other means will not be accepted.
- No credit will be given to anyone who leaves an event early, including starred events that may go over the end time for discussions or Q&A.
- Very seldom has a monitor missed an event. In instances when we can verify that a monitor was not present, a sign-in/out sheet will be accepted, or a picture of the event forwarded to me within 24 hours of the event.
- Only a CSP 99 event ticket will produce attendance credit - No other proof of attendance will be accepted.
