It's really hard to visualize the connections between courses at Brown, especially in terms of requirements, so we made an app that would improve this experience.
Students at Brown who want to better understand what their requirements are and how they can move forward given courses they've already taken.
The graph looks really cool and pretty. Looking at our data was also very enlightening on how different departments have different progressions in courses. For example, in the Economics department, there are distinct paths of courses to follow. In Computer Science, however, it's more of a web. When we first looked at the American Studies department, we thought there was a glitch in our code, since nothing showed up. But when we looked closer, we realized that that was actually due to the fact that none of the courses in the department had any prerequisites.
