In addition, students are encouraged to participate in summer programmes in French- and Spanish-speaking countries.

Colour of Harmony
Organised by the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, the annual Colour of Harmony, held in April of each year, showcases the talents of Art and Music majors and recognises a significant contributor to the development of the arts in The Bahamas through the presentation of the E. Clement Bethel Award. Usually held under the patronage of the Governor General of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, the event begins with a concert featuring the College of The Bahamas Concert Band and Choir and musical selections by individual students. The official opening of an exhibition of the works of Art students follows the concert.

Foreign Languages Day
Held at the Oakes Field Campus during Spring Semester and organised by the Foreign Languages Department, this event promotes foreign languages by showcasing the diversity of the French, Spanish and Haitian Creole cultures. It also provides an opportunity for foreign language students to use the target language outside of the formal classroom environment. The event is a fun-filled one with food, games, songs and dances.

School of English Studies (SES)
A-Block (A97), Oakes Field Campus

Chair: Dr Craig Smith

The School of English Studies prepares students for communication within the changing cultural and social landscapes of The Bahamas, the region and the world and to interpret those landscapes critically and tolerantly. To this end, English majors are exposed to a broad intellectual foundation in language, literature and cultural studies while they strengthen their abilities to express ideas in clear, accurate prose. In addition to studying classics of British and American literature and the broad frame of western and non-western thought that are the standards of English programmes, majors read Bahamian, Caribbean and African and African American literature, making connections with diasporic writings as a whole.

The School offers a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and also provides the courses necessary to satisfy the College's General Education Literacy and Humanities requirements.

Basil H. Johnson Scholarship The Basil H. Johnson Scholarship is available to new students enroling in the BA in English programme. Donated by the Johnson family, the four-year scholarship is named in honour of the late Basil L. Johnson. A well-known Bahamian, Basil L. Johnson championed the right of every Bahamian to read and write and remained firm in his belief that education has the ability to empower people.

Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture Series
Thanks to a generous donation from the Rodgers family, the School of English Studies hosts the Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture Series every year. This Series provides an opportunity for members of the College and the wider community to interact with noted literary and linguistic scholars. It is named in honour of the late Anatol Rodgers who contributed to the development of education in The Bahamas from 1933-1975 and who was the third Bahamian and first female Principal of The Government High School (1971-1975). Although she taught a variety of subjects during her professional life, Mrs. Rodgers's first love was English.

Free Speech Project
This initiative introduces students to reasoned discussions of pressing national issues. Students also participate in speech, debating and essay competitions.

Tamarind
Published every fall by SES, Tamarind, is an annual journal that showcases the creative writing and art work of College of The Bahamas students and alumni. Submission deadline, in any given year, is January 31. Submissions are reviewed by SES faculty.
