The Randolph-Macon faculty is dedicated to the full development of students' skills
in written and oral communication. In particular, any course that meets an Areas
of Knowledge Requirement in Civilizations, Arts and Literature, Social Sciences,
and Natural and Mathematical Sciences will be attentive to students' competence
in writing and/or speaking as appropriate to the context of the course.
Randolph-Macon's curriculum goals make clear the College's intent to provide students
with an education
Since none of these goals is particular to a single discipline or even to a single
area of knowledge, Randolph-Macon offers courses in various areas that are designated
as addressing these goals and requires each student to include certain numbers of
these designated courses in his/her program of study. Courses throughout the curriculum
may be designated as being especially attentive to up to three cross-area designations.
However, a student (with their advisor) is limited to selecting any two of these
designations to apply toward their general education requirement.
a travel or study-abroad course,
a research experience,
a field study, or
a student-teaching assignment.
