Proposing an Arts Intensive Course

We encourage you to develop your Arts Intensive course so that it may fulfill the Creative Expression (WAYS) Breadth requirement. Syllabi for new AI courses are due in January.

We begin to recruit instructors and consider course ideas in October and November each year.   Contact us at if you would like to learn more or propose a course idea.
