Developmental Experiences

If you’re entering Elmhurst as a first-year student, your experience with the Integrated Curriculum begins with two required courses: a writing course and a first-year seminar on an interdisciplinary topic like Issues in U.S. Health Care, the Science of Learning, or the Many Facets of Humor. (For transfer students, the first-year seminar requirement is waived.) 

Next, you’ll have to demonstrate, through coursework or testing, proficiencies in writing, mathematics, foreign languages and computer technology. Thereafter, you’ll work with your advisor to fulfill Integrated Curriculum requirements at the upper level. You'll also meet an experiential learning requirement that will allow you to test your knowledge in and against the world.

Finally, you’ll complete an integrative senior capstone experience in your major that brings together everything you’ve learned in college. You might conduct an independent research project, for example, or immerse yourself in creative work. Whatever form your capstone work takes, you’ll work closely with a faculty advisor throughout the term.

In addition to the developmental experiences outlined above, you’ll complete Integrated Curriculum requirements in Areas of Knowledge and Skill and Value Development.
