The objectives of the Intensive Learning Program are to foster intense and purposeful faculty-student interchange and to encourage thoughtful, creative exploration of a focused topic during a time when students are enrolled in one and only one course. The College provides a wide array of Intensive Learning opportunities, including travel courses as well as on-campus courses. All intensive learning courses emphasize active student participation, for example, in field study, simulations, and laboratory work. The majority of these courses are offered in May, during a three-week term. All students are required to complete at least one unit of Intensive Learning to graduate from Roanoke College.
