LSP courses begin upon arrival at DePaul with your Chicago Quarter (Discover/Explore) course, and continue during the entire first year as you take your Writing Courses, a Focal Point Seminar, and Quantitative Reasoning and Technology Literacy courses (depending on your major or college requirements). Together, these classes orient you to DePaul and prepare you for continuing academic success.
During the sophomore year, students generally take fulfill Multicultural Seminar requirement and in the junior year, an Experiential Learning requirement (e.g., study abroad, field internships, research), both of which can be applied to complement or strengthen other fields of interests. In the senior year, a Capstone Course culminates your educational experience at DePaul.
Across all years of study, you also take two to three courses from six broadly defined domains of intellectual inquiry: 1) Arts and Literature, 2) Philosophical Inquiry, 3) Religious Dimensions, 4) Scientific Inquiry, 5) Social, Cultural, and Behavioral Inquiry, and 6) Understanding the Past. (Note: You should carefully review the specific requirements in your chosen major as slight variations do exist in what students take.)
