The Rollins Plan continues a century of curricular innovation that has set Rollins apart from other top liberal arts colleges across the country. The Rollins Plan is an alternative method to satisfy general education requirements. A series of seven courses balanced across the Expressive Arts, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences focused on a “big idea” or theme is the essence of the program. The Rollins Plan is designed to actively engage students both in and outside of the classroom, deepen the connection between theory and practice, as well as the relationship between Rollins and the external community. In short, the Rollins Plan prepares students for the greatest challenges that face our world through a series of courses that are interconnected and designed to produce integrative learning experiences that cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
Students involved in the Rollins Plan will take courses in their major, elective courses, and will choose one of the two Rollins Plan options (Global Challenges: Florida and Beyond or Revolution) to fulfill general education requirements. Students in the class of 2013 will have the opportunity to apply for one of the two options that will be offered through the Rollins Plan.
