yellow asteriskStudents will complete seven required courses that collectively enable them to think critically about their place in the world and how they can make a difference.

teal asteriskThis designation is embedded in the curriculum and ensures students develop an awareness of a Benedictine perspective (practices, values and heritage).

The Integrations Curriculum recognizes that learning should make a difference in the world. To this end our students take courses that explore the ways in which their education can be transformative. Students take two courses in Cultural and Social Difference in order to explore the ways in which social identities are formed, understood, and made to matter. The Theology requirements familiarize students with the core tenets of Christian and other religious traditions. And all of our students develop basic competence in a second language.

Integrated ePortfolio

Students will fill their Integrated ePortfolio with artifacts of their time at CSB and SJU. Artifacts can be anything but will likely include papers, engagement prompts, projects, presentations, research summaries and performances. This ePortfolio 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.
