Gov 10 has been a rite of passage for years--but for the class of 2004, it will be history.
Following a curriculum reform approved last spring, the course, formally titled Government 10, "Introduction to Political Thought," will no longer be required of department concentrators starting with the current first-year class.
Now, gov students must take a small tutorial for all of sophomore year, instead of the mythical 100 person-plus Gov 10 lecture.
It's all part of an effort to make Faculty members more accessible to students.
This fall, the Faculty has been discussing expanding the tutorial program.
But in departments, Faculty interaction has always started with the tutorial.
So it's no wonder that several departments have been taking a new look at their tutorial programs--and looking at other concentrations for tutorial models.
