The Special Experience Courses provides students with opportunities to demonstrate the application of the knowledge and skills developed through both the major discipline of study and the General Education Program.
Special experience courses can be developed in any subject or discipline. Special experience courses are characterized by reflective thinking and the ability to synthesize information and ideas, to integrate knowledge, and to express ideas acquired through the college experience. These courses also emphasize the overall general education experience by emphasizing ethics, values and norms, and the multicultural awareness as broadly defined.
