All-Program Information & Assignments
A Message from Susan

Please read the following. The first URL is for Daniel Chandler's book, Semiotics, which he has put on the web free of charge. The second is from Roland Barthe's Mythologies. It will be easier to understand after reading Chandler because you will one of the images that Barthes discusses on Chandler's site, AND you will have some background.

The following assignments are the specific work for the all-program sessions. There will also be seperate assignments for french sections and seminars that you will need to keep track of and complete.
Each week there will be all-program readings. These must be completed by the date indicated in the syllabus. Failure to complete readings or participate in workshops will jeopardize credit.
Attendance is mandatory. Students who miss more than 2 all-program lectures/workshops during the quarter will jeopardize their credit. You are responsible for signing the sign-in sheets each day.
Written Workshop Assignments:
Workshop assignments will be announced each week. These assignments must be completed each week and typed up and placed in a folder to be turned in with your portfolio at the end of the quarter. Late or incomplete workshop assignment folders will not be accepted.
The take-home essay exam will handed out to be completed during Thanksgiving Break. It will consist of questions to be answered in 2-4 typed pages each. The questions will cover All-Program material, and one additional question specific to the seminar to which you belong. This exam is due Monday, December 1, at 9:00am. No late exams will be accepted.
