Core Equivalency for “Explorations in the Core” Courses

“Explorations in the Core” are sections of existing Core courses that have included an innovative thematic focus or pedagogical approach (see the COR listings in Sec. 13.). The course descriptions for “Explorations” sections are the same as the original course—with the addition of an explanation of the nature of the innovation. Each such section is equivalent to, and satisfies the Core requirement for, the original Core course it explores. Students can enroll in an “Explorations” section of a Core course only if they have no more than one other Core equivalency on their transcript (Core equivalencies granted to a transfer student, equivalency for one semester of junior year Core awarded for study abroad, or completion of another “Explorations” section).
