Have you ever wanted to teach your own course? Perhaps you’re interested in becoming a teacher one day, or maybe you just have a great idea that you would like to teach others. At Rice, you can make this a reality! Rice University allows undergraduates to teach and to take classes in non-traditional areas, which is meant to supplement and expand the Rice curriculum. These classes are labeled COLL (college courses) and are offered for 1 credit hour on a Pass/Fail scale. The Spring 2014 course list is currently posted (you can check it out at courses.rice.edu), and there are quite of few college courses available! I personally love the “Knitty Gritty” (where you learn to knit!) and “How to be Happy.”
