Integrative and Applied Learning Requirement

Students entering the college in Fall 2022 and later must meet the Integrative and Applied Learning graduation requirement. This is intended to be an upper level experience that meets the outcomes below.

Students will be able to:

  • Integrate multiple bodies of knowledge with their personal experience by asking meaningful questions about real-world problems 
  • Apply skills, theories, and methods gained in academic study, professional experiences, and/or co-curricular experiences to new situations 
  • Reflect upon changes in their learning and outlook over time, and integrate into their future endeavors based on that self-reflection 

Students may meet the Integrative and Applied Learning (IAL) requirement in one of two ways.

  1. Take a course that is designed to meet the requirement and carries the IAL attribute. See the list below.
  2. Design and propose an individual IAL experience in Grad Leader. Your proposal must demonstrate how you will meet the three outcomes above. You will need to identify a "field supervisor" who can verify your work and a Geneseo faculty or staff member who will read your reflection and indicate completion of the graduation requirement.
