Curriculum Review Process
The Committee on Curriculum and Academic Policy (CCAP) oversees the curriculum and other academic policies at Wellesley College.
Each year the curriculum from every department and program is reviewed, first directly by the department or program and, by an assigned CCAP reviewer. Once the initial review is complete the entire committee discusses the department or program as a whole entity. With CCAP approval in hand, the curriculum is then presented by committee to the Academic Council for motion and vote.
Each year faculty may submit new courses for consideration into the department or program's curriculum. New courses receive extensive review from the committee prior to approval.
