Departments and Administrators
CI-H/HW subjects provide a foundation in general expository writing and speaking. These subjects require at least 20 pages of writing divided among three to five assignments, of which at least one must be revised and resubmitted. CI-H/HW subjects also offer students substantial opportunity for oral expression through presentations, student-led discussion, or class participation. In order to guarantee sufficient attention to student writing and ample opportunity for oral expression, the maximum number of students per section is 18, except when a subject is taught without sections (where the faculty member in charge is the only instructor). In this case, enrollment can rise to 25 if a writing advisor is attached to the subject.
Proposing or modifying CI-H/HW subjects
CI-H/HW subjects are reviewed and designated by the Subcommittee on the Communication Requirement. A list of current CI-H/HW subjects is available online. Faculty members wishing to propose new CI-H/HW subjects or substantial revisions to existing ones should contact Office of the Communication Requirement. Subjects requesting CI-H/HW status must also count towards the HASS Requirement. Departments may propose new CI-H/HW subjects by downloading and submitting a PDF proposal form to the Office of the Communication Requirement by December 7, 2012.
