Boricua College is an independent, private, liberal arts and science, professional not-for-profit college. Recognizing that most Boricua students may be employed, full or part-time, throughout their undergraduate studies, employment in the form of supervised internships and clinical residence may be included as a vital part of the College’s educational program. A prospective student must therefore be ready and able, with assistance from Faculty Facilitators, to build course-work, home, family, community and employment into an integrated program of educational growth and development. 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.
