Connecting The Classroom To The World Beyond

At Wittenberg, you get connected! Beginning Fall 2021, the Connections Curriculum challenges students to become responsible global citizens, to discover their callings, and to lead personal, professional, and civic lives of creativity, service, compassion, and integrity. Find out all the ways that you can make a connection to Witt. 

The Big Picture

Our Connections Curriculum provides opportunities for students to gain a solid academic foundation in multiple disciplines and then connect their classroom knowledge with practical situations, testing new skills in the wider world. Students will apply concepts from their coursework to experiential learning opportunities like civic engagement, internships, and research. These experiential learning opportunities also connect students with future collaborators, potential employers, mentors, and the community.

Getting Started

The First Year Seminar (FYS) is a fall semester 4-credit class that provides an introduction to Wittenberg, to campus resources, and to the foundational skills and expectations of college level courses. FYS also engages students in thinking about a problem facing society. Each enduring problem is based on content specific to the instructor of the course. Students will work with peers, faculty, and campus resources to engage meaningfully with the problem and society as a whole.
