Assignment 4: Curriculum Planning
The assignment had us create a long term college plan (four-year plan), considering possible major(s) and honors college requirements. Previous to this assignment, I only thought of the courses I would take this and next year. However, I had talked to advisers beforehand and had sample curriculum at hand for bioengineering and the honors college, so this assignment simply required me to figure out the orders of the certain courses. Though the task seemed simple, it proved to take more time. It was hard to fit honors and music courses in my schedule. Also, I began to question whether I should continue the chemistry series or start the physics series. After consulting with various people, I have decided to start the physics series next quarter in order to allow for more courses in my following year. Whether I follow this plan depends on whether I get accepted into the bioengineering department, however, it gave me a clear idea of what I should be doing in order to complete my credits. It also gave me an opportunity to become familiar with the MyPlan tool and DAR system.
