Curricular Experiments

The process of curriculum innovation at Olin College means that curricular experiments are ongoing during most academic years. These experiments are courses that serve as designated alternatives for requirements in the curriculum.  There may also be experiments that replace a requirement in the curriculum.  A curricular experiment is noted by a course code and number.  Each course begins with CIE (Curricular Innovation Experiment), followed by the year in which it is offered, e.g. CIE2017.  If more than one experiment is running, the course number will end in a letter.
