Elon University’s general studies curriculum is currently being revised for the first time since 1994 in order to provide better integration among all classes. At this time, the revisions are only propositions and must be discussed by all faculty members before they are made final in May 2011
While Elon’s general studies program is nationally recognized, Tom Mould, associate professor and general studies review committee co-chair, said he believes there is always room for improvement.
The desire for students to cultivate lifelong learning to become global citizens is better incorporated into the proposed curriculum, said Rosemary Haskell, professor and general studies review committee co-chair.
If the proposed curriculum is made final by a faculty vote in May 2011, the committee would expect to see changes develop within the school in the fall of 2013.
