Special Topic by Genre
All Special Topics courses are taught in the Spring. Proposals for courses are generated through discussion at our Spring Professional Development Conference (the year before the class is to be taught). After presentation to the Composition Committee, teachers can revise and submit final proposals by early Fall semester (September 15) so they can appear in the course bulletin for the following Spring. Although students will select the class through the bulletin, it is the teacher's responsibility to market the class.
Review and complete the Special Topics Heuristic to help you develop your proposal and address the questions that might come up in the committee discussion.
