Carp Courses

Welcome to our new format. In November, 2007 we rearranged things and are now offering three levels of achievement (which are yet to be named). These levels are reached by completing courses — lists of books and movies related to a specific subject. Each book or movie (when given a rating) counts as one credit.

Level One Requirements — 200 credits

  • Complete one Major course — 50 credits
  • Complete two Minor courses of 25 credits each — 50 credits
  • Complete Elective courses of various lengths — 100 credits

Level Two Requirements — 400 credits (200 from Level One plus 200 more)

  • Complete two Major courses — 100 credits
  • Complete four Minor courses of 25 credits each — 100 credits
  • Complete Elective courses of various lengths — 200 credits

Level Three Requirements — 600 credits (200 from Level One, 200 from Level Two plus 200 more)

  • Complete all three Major courses — 150 credits
  • Complete all six Minor courses — 150 credits
  • Complete Elective courses of various lengths — 300 credits

All of the Major and Minor courses have been entered, as have several elective courses. More elective courses will be added in the future.

To access the courses, click on the drop-down boxes under “Book Courses” or “Movie Courses” at the top of the right-hand column of the home page.

You can also see how many credits you have in a selected course by clicking on “Reports” at the top of the page, choosing a course and clicking on the selected one from the drop-down menu next to “Course.”

We hope to have the ability to track your credits soon.
