University Core Requirements – 39 hours
The University Core Curriculum emphasizes a diverse set of disciplines in order to prompt students to engage with fundamental questions of existence in a cross-disciplinary way, rather than holding that one particular discipline has all the answers. Each of our core courses embeds certain Core Skills, such as writing and analytical and logical reasoning. In developing these skills students acquire the tools they will need to contribute to and flourish in an increasingly complex world.
