Forging Disciplinary Connections with the Humanities: The Marquette Integrated Core Curriculum

The development of a three-tiered Integrated Core Curriculum for undergraduates.

The Marquette Integrated Core Curriculum is an inquiry based curriculum that will introduce students to the foundations of a Jesuit liberal arts education while allowing them to explore the intersections of the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. This project focuses on refining two key aspects of this curriculum: A Methods of Inquiry (MOI) Course and the Discovery Tier of courses. These curricular elements intentionally seek to develop student ability to make meaningful connections between the Humanities and the Natural and Social Sciences. This curriculum requires focus on planning pedagogy strategies and preparing faculty. This grant will provide the means to consult with subject matter experts and offer a summer Core Curriculum Faculty Development Institute that will provide training for faculty to allow them to engage in integrative teaching strategies and deliver on the promise of this Curriculum.
