Details:

  • It is highly recommended that members of the module not enroll in an RTVF 360 or another RTVF 464 during fall quarter senior year when they are enrolled in RTVF 365-0 Writers’ Studio I.  This is due to the anticipated writing workload and the collaborative opportunities afforded by the cohort experience to workshop multiple projects during the course of the module sequence.
  • Members of the module may not enroll in an RTVF 360 or other RTVF 464 during winter quarter senior year when they are enrolled in RTVF 365-0 Writers’ Studio II.
  • Students must maintain a B- average in all module coursework. In the event a student earns below a B- in the fall cohort class, they may be dismissed from the program by decision of the module coordinator in consultation with the committee of instruction.
  • A grade of B or higher is required in all pre-requisites and all writing classes. Any such class with a grade lower than B will not qualify as a pre-requisite nor count toward completion of the module. All the other above requirements must be completed by graduation.
  • A Capstone Portfolio.
