Grand Challenge Curriculum
Grand Challenge Curriculum courses immerse students in complex challenges facing the world. Undergraduate and graduate students can register for a GCC course and prepare to grapple with important and complex global problems from multiple disciplinary perspectives.
Freshman Seminars are designed specifically to enhance the first-year experience and a great way for new students to start their university career. Each seminar is taught by a faculty member and is limited to 20 students. They allow first-year students to interact in a smaller setting, connect with a faculty member, and become involved in a unique area of study.
The Writing-Enriched Curriculum (WEC) Project provides a process for meaningfully infusing writing and writing instruction into all undergraduate curricula. The WEC project enrolls five additional undergraduate units each year and will continue to do so until all undergraduate majors are engaged.
