Integrative Learning Component (ILC) Curriculum Requirement Completion Form
Integrative learning helps students combine the benefits of the breadth and depth in their education by fostering
synthetic understanding directed toward a particular question, topic, or theme. All students are required to
complete an ILC through which they: a. Enhance their knowledge of a particular question, topic, or theme by
bringing into conversation some combination of written, visual, artistic, experiential, or laboratory based
inquiry; and b. Use two or more ways of knowing and/or theoretical approaches to cultivate a more nuanced
understanding of a particular question, topic or theme. Students may meet the ILC requirement by completing
any of the following:
1. A multifield major or a major or minor approved by the Academic Affairs Committee as meeting the
description of integrative learning above. A list of approved majors and minors are listed on the reverse side of
this page (Appendix A).
2. A semesterlong offcampus study program that has been approved by CIIS as meeting the description of
integrative learning above. See Appendix B for a discussion of the SLUapproved programs certified by the
Committee on International and Intercultural Studies as meeting the ILC learning goals for every student
completing them.
3. A cluster of 4 courses of at least one unit, each organized around a particular question, topic, or theme,
selected in consultation with the academic advisor. The 4 courses must be from at least 2 different departments
or programs and may include courses counted toward other general education requirements. The academic
advisor must approve the student’s course cluster prior to graduation.
Complete this section to confirm completion of the ILC requirement for graduation.
Signed forms should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office as soon as the ILC is completed.
