Web Community

While Individual Majors give students the opportunity to integrate diverse resources in their plans for a major, the required Web Portfolios allow them to demonstrate that integration, and the coherent, meaningful relations among the different kinds of work and experiences they undertake. The Web Community is also the online learning community of the CIS, where students can link their web portfolios to those of their peers and to outside resources.
Current students’ web portfolios are required to go “live” by midway through their senior year. Portfolios linked on this page will continue to change throughout the academic year. Portfolios must include the original proposal in some form, significant coursework, a representation of the senior project, and an annotated bibliography. A finished portfolio is required in early May in order to certify the individual major as complete.
