Creativity Core Curriculum
The Creativity Core Curriculum, the newest part of Jefferson’s Hallmarks Program for General Education, is designed to help you to expand your creative capacity so that you are equipped to work on the world’s most complex problems in whatever discipline you choose. Every major has a required course that is designated as creativity intensive. Creative making workshops—like creative writing in nature, print-making and virtual reality—offer unique opportunities throughout the year.
Hallmarks Program for General Education
The Hallmarks Program at Thomas Jefferson University combines the “general education” credits that every student in Pennsylvania must take with an electronic portfolio that highlights your work. Through the program you will develop important competencies like Rigorous Inquiry, Contextual Communication, Intercultural Insight and Ethical Reflection to help you throughout your life.
