Departmental Courses

Departmental Courses: These are already existing courses, most of the topics vary in nature, that will be open to CT students when they are taught by Core or Affiliate Faculty, and when they treat one of the fields covered in the Core Course sequence. They are arranged in a set of rubrics in order to make it easier for students to devise a coherent program of study in consultation with their advisors. Students are not, however, limited, to these rubrics and may devise a problem or areas of their own for the six course “problem” requirement. Course lists will be updated on a quarterly basis, and each quarter the CT program office will compile a list of available, relevant departmental courses taught by CT Core and Affiliate Faculty.
