JANUARY TERM 2014 WORKSHOPS
As of January 2014, the length of the January term precludes offering full academic courses, as in past. Instead, we are excited to expand the Jan term workshop curriculum, offering a full array of co-curricular academic workshops in January term 2014.
January term workshops have been piloted over the past few years with demonstrated interest and success. We are confident that offering exclusively workshops during the January term will provide valuable opportunities for students and faculty to explore new ideas and interests or develop specific skills and experiences for current work and studies.
All workshops will be co-curricular* and will not require a full narrative evaluation of student performance by the instructor; however, co-curricular workshops are considered to be learning activities and may be included on a student's academic record if completed satisfactorily. Five College students and community members will not be eligible to register for Hampshire January term workshops.
Complete and up-to-date information about January term workshops will be listed on Hampshire's online course catalog, The Hub.
Student-led activities during January Term 2014 will be listed on the Experimental Programs in Education and Community (EPEC) web page.
* Co-curricular courses offer opportunities for skills development, innovation, personal growth, and experience-based learning outside of the regular curriculum of the College. These courses meet on the same [calendar] schedule as academic courses, and require registration following the same procedures and deadlines. Co-curricular courses do not normally satisfy distributional or divisional requirements. They may, however, be considered for inclusion in a divisional portfolio and are otherwise additional resources that supplement the core curriculum.
