College Transition
College Transition shares a common General Education course, a College Transition Seminar course focusing on college study and success skills, and a College Transition Workshop among approximately 20 students. Students apply these new study skills to their preparation for the shared General Education course - with the help of an undergraduate Study Group Leader who previously earned an A in the course.
Courses in Common
Courses in Common gives first-year students the opportunity to take up to three classes together with about 20 other first-year students. Almost all of the courses used in CIC satisfy General Education Program requirements. There are options for students interested in taking Rhetoric, some for students wishing to defer Rhetoric for a semester, for Honors students, for students needing chemistry or math, and for some direct-admission programs.
English/English & Creative Writing Bundles
English and English & Creative Writing Bundles give first year and transfer students the opportunity to feel part of a smaller community by taking four classes in common with the same 18 classmate, totaling 8 semester hours. These courses give you a strong head-start in the major by completing the foundational set of courses as well as an Introduction to the Major course that will allow you to get insider tips from faculty and advisors about the opportunities in the department and literary community. There is one bundle open to English majors and two bundles available for English & Creative Writing majors.
