General education, customized for you.

Students who entered Simmons after Fall 2015 take part in the Simmons PLAN (Purpose Leadership ActioN) undergraduate curriculum. PLAN provides a framework for you to engage with the City of Boston, develop your own understanding and practice of leadership, learn across disciplines and personalize key components of your academic experience. 

All students have a common set of core experiences and themes, and receive guidance and support from faculty, but ultimately you will design your own academic experience. You’ll work closely with your advisor to choose courses that fit the University requirements — but also inspire and challenge you.
