Propose a FWS


FWS teaching assignments are made by individual departments. Seminar topics must be proposed and designed under the auspices of the sponsoring department. That department, after its own review, then submits them for final Knight Institute and Education Policy Committee review.

The Knight Institute may edit course descriptions for publications in the FWS brochure and the eCommons site; if extensive editorial changes are required, the instructor and/or the course leader will normally be consulted.

Many syllabi, assignment sequences, exercises, and prize-winning student essays are available for review in the Knight Institute office, M101 McGraw.
