These courses cover all academic disciplines, allowing students to customize their academic exploration. Themes embedded in many of these courses will showcase how seemingly unrelated fields can be connected.

Integrated Portfolio

Students will fill their Integrated Portfolio with artifacts of their time at CSB/SJU through a program called Portfolium. Artifacts can be anything but will likely include papers, engagement prompts, projects, presentations, research summaries and performances. This portfolio will then serve as an academic resume for the student’s use after graduation – reflecting the skills and experiences they received through the Integrations Curriculum.
