The MESP Curriculum

MESP students take four courses together during summer 2016 and earn nine credit hours that count towards graduation credits. The summer courses are specifically designed to provide students 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:

  • ENGL 1110 – Composition I
  • ANTH 2800 – Cultural Anthropology
  • IDS 2010 – Learning to Serve
  • Math Camp

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. During the fall semester, students will be required to only take one course together (IDS 2010 – Learning to Lead). 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.

Fall Curriculum will be tailored to suit each student’s major, but will include one common course to support developing leadership skills and community engagement
