Forum Requirements

Students may elect to forgo the College Area Requirements and participate in a College Forum if their application is selected in the Summer prior to matriculation. Students in a Forum must also complete the College Competency Requirements.

Each forum is unique and requires particular courses based on the prevailing problem/topic/issue the Forum seeks to address. Forums range from 30-33 required credits. For a full list of each Forum’s requirements, click the individual forum link below.

Creative Processes and Practices


Human Impact on the Environment

Mobility and Community

Visions of the Good

Transfer and test credit earned before matriculation may be applied toward fulfillment of Forum Requirements.

Forum Requirements must be completed by the end of the fourth semester.

Courses taken to fulfill certain Forum requirements may count toward a major and also satisfy the  Second Writing Requirement.

All courses must be taken for credit and for a grade.

Classes that qualify for Forum requirements:

  • Cannot be taken for Audit (AU)
  • Cannot be taken for Credit/No Credit (CR/NC)
  • Must be listed on the Forum website (or by approval of the Forum advisor)
