The Winter and Spring DCX courses continue the work begun in the Autumn DCX by challenging students to more-deeply explore areas of personal interest. While Winter DCX (focusing on research and collaboration skills) and Spring DCX (focusing on reflective practices) courses are not required, they count toward the general education requirements for graduation.
- Areas of Inquiry (AOI): The Discovery Core Experience courses meet UWB Areas of Inquiry requirements such as “Arts & Humanities” (A&H), “Natural Sciences” (NSc) and “Social Sciences” (SSc). You may also see a designation for Writing (W), Composition (C), Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), Community-Based Learning and Research (E), or Diversity (DIV).
- Credits: 5-credits
