special activity
Special Activity

Reflective Journals:The reflective journal will be used throughout your courses to help you reflect on what you are learning and to help us better understand how meaningful the information is to you.

Portfolio:The portfolio is your collection of the work in the classes. On Dec. 9th, we will assess your collection and your reflection upon what you have accomplished so far and what more you would like to accomplish in the program.

Projects:Each of the five topics will have specific projects assigned by the professor. All projects will be of equal weight.
