Our Curriculum Supports You

Career Exploration

Our First-Year Experience course smashes the myth that major=job. For most people, that isn’t what the world is like. We teach you to learn to embrace a path from college to career where you can explore, adjust, build your network and be ready to take advantage when a break comes your way.

Project-Based Learning

Our curriculum gives you experiences employers value, including hands-on projects and group work. Take a course where you edit and design our literary magazine or develop a social media strategy for a real-world client.

Student Research

We pride ourselves on how many students present their work at research conferences and in the community. We teach you to be confident in presenting your ideas and to learn to read a room and communicate well.
