Curriculum Overview

The 31 credit curriculum is shown on the Freshman Year Curricula Page. These courses have been carefully sequenced to maximize synergism between them. For example, math topics are frequently taught just before they are used in physics so that physics problems serve to motivate calculus understanding. Likewise, projects in engineering courses have also served to motivate understanding and work in physics, calculus, and English.

The instructors teach a cohort of 48 students who take all of the courses together. Each teaches in his or her subject and is aided by a Teaching Assistant. Classes are formally scheduled in a block that meets four hours per day, five days a week. Within that block, faculty can vary the class meeting times and the number of hours needed in each subject from week to week.
