Applications open to participate in the Spring, 2023 Theme Semester.

Theme Semester 2022-2023: PLAY 

The Spring 2023 theme semester will be devoted to exploring the creative power of "play." The College of Arts and Sciences is eager to see how play informs our scholarship, fuels imaginative instruction, and encourages students to embrace the process as much as the final product.

There are three ways for CAS faculty to participate in the Theme Semester:

  • Course Enrichment Grants support the development of courses at all levels (Carolina Core through 600-level), in any CAS discipline, and of any size (from small seminars to large lectures).
  • Co-Curricular Programming Grants provide funding to help develop and offer scholarly and creative activities and events that engage the campus and community, and that complement our Spring 2023 Theme Semester on “Play” in the multiple meanings of that word.
  • Theme-Related Course Offerings: Faculty teaching existing courses that are related to the theme of Play are invited to share the details with us for potential promotion as one of our official Theme Semester course offerings. All approved Theme Semester 2023 classes will be advertised on the Theme Semester webpage and in promotional materials created by the Dean’s Office to encourage interested students to enroll. 

Applications for each of these opportunities are due September 19.

For more information, visit the Theme Semester web page, or contact Theme Semester Faculty Coordinator Peter Duffy.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
