MetadataShow full item record
The general education curriculum that supports the K Plan features breadth across the liberal arts, a strong global and intercultural focus, widespread participation in meaningful study abroad and servicelearning, rigorous majors, capstone experiences including Senior Individualized Projects for all students, and a dedication to integration of the entire K experience. Three Shared Passages Seminars serve as both preparation for, and integration of, the rich, transformational components of the K Plan. Emphasizing student ownership of the educational experience, this curriculum encourages students to develop both an ability to think creatively and analytically about a variety of issues and ideas, as well as to bring unusual depth and passion to their particular field of interest.This is the adopted document for the curriculum change adopted in 2009.
