2018 j项 study tour to Paris
No. 在乡下.

Carthage has been ranked No. 在乡下 for student participation in short-term study abroad. That’s mostly thanks to our j项, when professors lead month-long study tours in 15-25 different countries. But many students choose to study abroad for an entire semester or year. To truly become a global citizen, reading and talking about the world is not enough. You need to experience living, learning, and working in other countries.

Carthage 荣誉项目 is rigorous and demanding, but incredibly rewarding for the College’s highest academic achievers. Students who join the program take specially designed courses during their first six semesters, participate in active Student Learning Communities, and complete an 荣誉 Portfolio their senior year. Students who complete the program will be recognized as Carthage 荣誉 Scholars.

Intellectual Foundations

Students must complete one seminar course called Intellectual Foundations, typically taken during the fall and spring semesters of freshman year. Intellectual Foundations will expose you to literature from the greatest thinkers, 作者, 艺术家, and leaders of all time — not so you can “ooh” and “ahh” at their genius, but so you can build upon it. You will imagine what could be possible, learn to think independently, and discover what you’re capable of achieving through intense discussions and complex writing assignments.

Writing Across the Curriculum

Writing well is a powerful life skill, and Carthage is committed to teaching you to write well — no matter what your discipline. Carthage’s intensive Writing Across the Curriculum program requires all students to take four courses that are designated Writing Intensive (“WI” in the catalog). 的 first of these courses is Intellectual Foundations. Of the remaining three courses, one must be in your academic major; the other two can be any WI course in the curriculum. If you are completing more than one major, you need only one WI in one of the majors that you are completing.
