先锋核心

We’ll deliver the world to you with the 先锋核心 program—an opportunity for you to discover your unique passions, and to seek out your future, 无论它在哪里. Every school has a general education requirement. But ours is different. 威尼斯游戏大厅’s general education requirement, or the 先锋核心, is more than a checklist of required courses. It’s the centerpiece of our undergraduate experience and an opportunity to explore your interests across the arts, 人文学科, social sciences and natural sciences with a cross-cultural thread running throughout. This broad body of knowledge complements your major area of study and helps build real-world skills like communication, problem solving and innovative thinking. No matter what you plan to major in, 威尼斯游戏大厅’s innovative 先锋核心 will better prepare you for a successful career in today’s diverse and global society.

YOU'VE GOT AN EPIC JOURNEY AHEAD OF YOU. 让我们做好准备.

The 先锋核心 has two main focuses—the four-course cross-cultural component and the distribution component. From freshman to senior year, 你就会探索, experience and reflect upon other cultures through a cultural seminar, a cross-cultural development course, the immersive learning Cross-Cultural Experience (CCE) and an integrative global perspectives colloquium. 同时, distribution component classes outside of your major will challenge you to think critically about the social and natural world, including your own beliefs, worldviews and preconceptions.

第一步 
FOUNDATIONAL EXPERIENCES

两门课程, cultural seminar and writing seminar, are taken during your first year at Carroll and set you up for success throughout college by developing critical thinking and writing skills. Consider them your jumping off point.

第二步 
DISTRIBUTION COURSES

Over your next three years, 你就会探索 topics of interest outside of your major through four, general education I courses and one, general education II class. At least one class will be a cross-cultural development course, designed to broaden your cultural literacy.
