CORE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The goal of the Core Curriculum is for students to
- engage in and articulate the value of creative and intellectual exploration;
- use multiple modes of inquiry, resources, and knowledge from multiple disciplines to ask questions, identify issues, and solve complex problems both within and across disciplinary boundaries;
- develop an openness to diversity in all its forms and demonstrate social responsibility and civic mindedness;
- learn about the global community and environmental stewardship; and
- hone the fundamental liberal arts skills of critical thinking, information literacy, written expression and oral expression across a variety of disciplinary boundaries
