Minor Requirements. The minor requires a minimum of 16 credit hours (4 courses).
The Principled Problem Solving Experience minor is a unique learning community in which students will demonstrate sophisticated understanding of the relationship between one or more of Guilford’s core values and a specific and significant real world problem. PPS Experiences require a significant commitment on the part of a student and are available only to those students at the beginning of each PPSE. PPSE topics and learning communities rotate and change, so please consult with the Center for Principled Problem Solving for PPSE’s currently accepting students.
PPS Experience typically involve a mix of traditional coursework and experiential opportunities (e.g., internships, abroad or field experiences, research, community service, etc.) and rely upon perspectives from a variety of disciplines. Real world problems and the College’s core values are not exclusive to a single discipline. Interdisciplinary learning represents a key component of each PPS Experience. Finally, students will have common experiences and courses that seek to build and strengthen the PPSE learning community for each student.
