For most students, going to college means taking courses in an institution of higher education, attending lectures on various academic subjects such as history, physics, or math; taking examinations on those subjects at the end of each term to receive credits for successfully completing courses, and graduating when a sufficient number of credits is achieved. At Boricua College, lecture-discussion courses are an excellent way for college students to master some kinds of information. Lecture-discussions about “theoretical studies” however, are only one, of five distinct ways in which students are educated and receive academic instruction at the College. An explanation of each of these modes of instruction and of the way they are integrated into a singular program of student growth and development, follows.
