Multicultural Emerging Scholars Program

The MESP Curriculum

MESP students take three courses during summer 2018 and earn six credit hours that count toward graduation credits. The summer courses are specifically designed to provide students with a solid foundation and head start for their first year of college. All of the courses students take during the summer are considered part of the general curriculum and can be used toward graduation credits regardless of major. The summer courses include:

  • Composition I
  • Math Camp
  • Social Science

In addition to these courses, students are required to participate in study tables as well as physically and mentally engaging activities designed to stimulate students' senses during the summer. Of course, students are also required to have fun. 

Fall & Spring Curriculums will be tailored to suit each student’s major, but will include one common course each semester to support developing leadership skills and community engagement. During the fall semester, students will only be required to take IDS 2010 – Learning to Serve, together. During the spring semester, students will take IDS 2010- Learning to Lead, as a group. Students will work with advisers in their respective colleges to complete their fall and spring schedules. We have faculty and advisers on our MESP team to assist students with course selections.
