Core and Real-World Learning
The Structure of the Core Program supports the academic goals expressed in Elizabethtown College's mission statement. Courses in the Core Program ( Check Sheet ) are reviewed every three years, with approximately one-third of the courses undergoing review each year. Thus, the Core is fluid, with courses moving in and out of the Core Program each year. Please use this web page for the most up-to-date listing of core offerings each academic year.
An important component of Elizabethtown College Real-world Learning is the high impact practices which supplement classroom learning. Real-world Learning is so significant that, completing at least two of these five Signature Learning Experiences (SLE) is a graduation requirement for all Elizabethtown College students. The student’s academic adviser will assist in choosing two of five signature learning experiences in: supervised research; community-based learning; cross-cultural experiences; internships, field experiences or practicums; and capstone experiences and developmental portfolios.
