Foundational Studies Program

At Indiana State University, we are committed to providing students with a high quality education that will develop their intellectual abilities while providing them with the skills and knowledge base they will need to successfully navigate the complexities of the twenty-first century. Indiana State’s Foundational Studies Program is the cornerstone of this goal. The Foundational Studies curriculum seeks to create well rounded individual; students therefore have the opportunity to take courses in science, history, literature, behavioral sciences, and the fine arts. The Foundational Studies program also seeks to prepare students for active lives as citizens and includes courses on ethical behavior, social responsibility and global perspectives. Together the major and the Foundational Studies curriculum prepare students to be effective communicators, critical thinkers, and informed decision makers.
