In November of last year, the General Education and University Curriculum committees approved changes to the Foundational Studies Program based on feedback from Boise State’s colleges, deans, faculty, students and staff.
The approved changes will take effect in Fall 2018, including the name changes listed below. Using the word “foundations” across all these titles will help students better identify the program’s courses and better understand the breadth of the curriculum. Students often did not understand the full scale of Foundational Studies because of the variety of course names in the previous model.
Do you have questions about these changes? Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
