Gettysburg College

Gettysburg, PA

Gettysburg College says, "[T]here are two hallmarks to the academic curriculum: (1) We ask students to be self-reflective, to write and think in ways that express a growing self-awareness about the progress and impact of their education; and (2) We ask students to make connections in what they are learning; to see relevant implications across courses, to achieve an education that is more than a transcript of self-contained courses."
