Boise State’s Foundational Studies Program is a general education curriculum designed to promote broad learning for success in the universality and in life. Boise State offers a carefully designed program in which students practice key skills throughout their college career and master those skills over time. The program focuses upon enduring questions of purpose and justice we face as individuals and as a global human community. The courses draw on subjects ranging from sciences, humanities, mathematics, art, and social science, and challenge students within these subject areas to think critically, write and speak well, sharpen their ethical reasoning, and explore a diversity of viewpoints and cultures.
