BLock U and Fall Leaf

BlockU is an intensive GenEd experience available for the first time to Online Students with the theme of Global Citizenship!  

  • Participate with others in a virtual self-exploration and study of tough issues facing our planet and its inhabitants.
  • Explore and understand the footprint of your citizenship along with its rights and responsibilities, locally and globally.
  • Satisfy your interest in having and managing global impact.
  • Complete 6 General Education requirements plus affiliate classes (if you choose).
  • Engage in and learn some of the most cutting-edge online community-building programs.

GCO is for students who are just starting college and want a framework around their GenEds or if they are on their way out and need a final few GenEds to get ready to be part of the global economy.

Here is one example of how to make GCO work with a schedule (students can take any course, in any sequence, at their convenience):
