Integrated Courses

Note: The Core Committee reviews and approves all new core courses. While this list of courses was accurate when the Bulletin was released, it cannot reflect changes made since that time. Verify Core Designations online during the registration process by seeking the relevant course codes (QA, EGC, ISJ, etc.) in the Banner registration program.

Engaging the Global Community (EGC)

EGC courses are designed to help students interact competently with the broader world. They incorporate three distinct academic learning goals, to demonstrate an integrative knowledge of the human and natural worlds, to communicate skillfully in multiple forms of expression (writing), and to act competently in a global and diverse world. All faculty teaching EGC courses are also engaged actively in integrating knowledge relevant to the course, either through team-teaching the course or teaching a course associated with an interdisciplinary faculty learning community.

Students choose one 3-credit hour course from the list of approved courses below to fulfill the EGC requirement.

Linked Courses

The linked courses are a unique aspect of a John Carroll education in which students take two courses which examine the same general subject matter from different disciplines. Each course is the co-requisite of the other, so students take them the same semester, and must pass both to achieve the linked credit. The integration is designed to foster an integrative knowledge of the human and natural worlds, develop habits of critical analysis and aesthetic appreciation, and demonstrate skillful communication in multiple forms of written expression. Foundational writing (EN 125 or EN 120/121) is a prerequisite for all integrated courses.

Requirements

Students must take one pair of linked courses, i.e. 2 corequisite courses, 6 credits total. Students can choose from the approved linked courses below. For courses that are listed as "Special Topics", students should consult semester course schedules for more specific course information.
