Liberal Arts Curriculum

As a public college of the liberal arts, St. Mary’s College of Maryland aims to educate its students to lead productive and satisfying lives as citizens. To accomplish this goal, the program of study is designed to provide a first-rate general education, to promote competence in at least one academic field, and to help each student develop skills of analysis and expression necessary for a life of value.

All students complete general college requirements, including two programs of study: Core Curriculum, and a major. The Core Curriculum program offers the student a broad understanding of several fields of knowledge. The major provides the opportunity to pursue one field in depth.
