Some Guidelines for Students Beginning Fall 2003 or Earlier
August 28 , 2007
- Their writing requirement is fulfilled by Rhetoric I and II (and Athens to New York ). They do not need the sophomore or junior writing course as described in the CAP document, nor can we require them to complete a senior-level writing intensive course in the major.
- Their speaking and information literacy requirements are fulfilled by Rhetoric I and II .
- Their community based learning requirement is satisfied by Athens to New York (or First Year Seminar-there were three pilot sections in Spring 2003). We waive the requirement for transfers.
- The other Civic Responsibilities can be met by any combination of the old and new categories, provided gender is included (because the new system was not in place for their first two years). These are Western, non-Western, Race and Ethnicity, Global, and Gender.
