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.
Elizabethtown College is committed to engaging its students in real-world learning opportunities that complement classroom learning and provide pathways to productive careers and lives beyond college. All Elizabethtown College students will complete at least two Signature Learning Experiences (SLE) as part of their graduation requirements. In consultation with their academic advisor, students will select at least two of the following five Signature Learning Experiences: supervised research; community-based learning; cross-cultural experiences; internships, field experiences or practicums; and capstone experiences. More information can be found on the “Core and Real World Learning Requirements” form.
