Perhaps one of the most unique components of the University’s General Education curriculum is the Experiential Education — or EE — requirement.
Each department has its own way of fulfilling the EE requirement. Some, for example, offer classes that encourage students to engage with the local community off campus.
The philosophy department offers such a class, PHIL 292, which “combines on-campus structured learning with substantial on-site field work incorporating philosophy into the primary and/or secondary school curriculum.”
The philosophy department’s approach to the EE credit ought to be lauded, for it allows its students to fulfill a relatively elusive credit while engaging with the broader Orange County community.
Furthermore, the course will also help to introduce children to a subject that they will probably only learn formally if they are able to attend college.
