|Required Sequence: CSPL405 & CSPL 406|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
Through this course, students can earn one quarter credit per year for participating in Ideals into Practice, a program that allows students to make connections between their academic curriculum and the practical experience they gain through campus employment, off-campus internships, community service, and extracurricular activities. By engaging in deep reflection about the skills they are gaining throughout their time at Wesleyan, students will be able to understand and explain to others how their liberal education prepares them for life after college.
Ideals into Practice involves: 1) successful completion of online assignments via Career Decisions: From Insight to Impact on Coursera; 2) participation in a daylong seminar at the start of the spring semester introducing students to an online portfolio platform; 3) completion of reflection pieces uploaded into the student's online portfolio before the end of the spring semester. While a student's online portfolio need not be publicly accessible, students are encouraged to give access to, and discuss the contents with, their faculty and career advisors.
Permission of the instructor is required. For the 2020-21 academic year, course registration is limited to students in the classes of 2023 or 2024 who were ALSO admitted to Wesleyan 1) as a Posse Scholar; or 2) through QuestBridge; or 3) as a degree-seeking international student on an F-1 or J-1 student visa.
