What We Teach
Practical Training Integrated into a Broad Education
The Foundry College programs are designed to help working adults continually adapt as the labor market changes. We focus on teaching practical skills that are unlikely to be replaced by automation in the foreseeable future, while simultaneously building versatile core capabilities to expand our students’ long-term options.
Our curriculum targets the particular skills and knowledge working adults need to adapt to changes in the labor market.
We help students become better critical thinkers, problem solvers, and communicators; to organize their work; and to collaborate effectively.
We collaborate with employers to ensure that the skills and knowledge we teach align with current and future hiring gaps.
In every class, students reinforce what they’ve learned during lectures by applying new knowledge and skills in small group exercises.
Real-World Case Studies
Students learn from industry-specific case studies and discuss possible applications of course content in their current job or prior professional experience.

All Foundry College courses are taught by experienced faculty who are recognized as experts in their fields. Our faculty has extensive experience and training in developing innovative curricula, delivering engaging online lectures, and running active-learning seminars.
