Creating A H A P I Theme 10 21 09

  1. 1. Creating a HAPI Theme 1. Consider topics of interest to you. Are they discipline topic or interdisciplinary topics. About what are you curious? 2. Remember: the courses in your HAPI theme should meet at least one General Education requirement and one College of Engineering Humanities and Social Science Credit. 3. Check possible course options by going to http://courses.illinois.edu/cis/2010/spring/catalog/index.html This site lists every subject area and the courses within that area. If you click on a topic like Anthropology, all the courses come up and you can read a description of the courses. The first line in the course description tells if the course meets a General Education requirement and what elements of the requirements it fulfills. 4. Think about your theme and then look for courses that might be related to that theme. Look at those course areas and explore what might be possible. Talk to iSAs about what they have experienced, hear about, or always wanted to explore. 5. Build your theme and include 4-5 courses so that you can select those that most interest you and that fulfill your requirements best. The select the 3 you plan to include in the HAPI theme. As you propose a theme you can include more courses than you plan to take—so that the next person may have some choice within the broader theme. 6. Recheck your selections with the General Education Course Lists http://courses.illinois.edu/cis/gened/ and with the College of Engineering Humanities and Social Science Course List http://www.engr.uiuc.edu/Advising/ss-hum.htm
