The goals of Albright’s General Education curriculum are to help students know the world, engage the world and understand the world through scaffolding courses that build on each other as you progress through your college journey. These courses begin with a First Year Seminar and end with a Synthesis course that integrates learning from other courses and Experience events. Along the way, you’ll earn certificates to build your resume.
Built in opportunities
You’ll gain deeper knowledge at Albright because every class offers a built-in opportunity to think and act creatively, critically and innovatively. Actively apply classroom theory in a laboratory or studio. Some Albright students take part in real patient interaction long before becoming a doctor. Others study the culture of Costa Rica as part of a language course. And physics students design and build prototypes to create new technology.
Working side-by-side with doctors, students in Albright’s Scribes Program get a jump on medical school.
