Boise State Has Entered A New World of Education
Boise State’s Foundational Studies Program, initiated in Fall 2012, replaced the current Core Curriculum with an integrated learning experience that illustrates the University’s commitment to undergraduate education. It offers a shared experience that unifies our diverse student body and expands students’ awareness of themselves and their world.The Program’s distinctive features establish the University as a leader in empowering students and enabling them to achieve academic excellence.
The Program emphasizes the kinds of inquiry central to higher education, creating opportunities to explore important subjects, ask questions, debate ideas, increase understandings, research, innovate, and solve problems. Courses incorporate team work and extend the educational experience beyond the classroom to include co-curricular activities such as International Study Abroad Experiences, Service Learning, Internships, and participation in student government. Our University Learning Outcomes pertain not only the classroom learning, but learning throughout the undergraduate experience – far beyond the walls of the classroom.
