Core Curriculum Requirements
The purpose of the Core Curriculum is to provide students with a foundation and the intellectual tools necessary to examine the fundamental, recurring questions about ourselves and our world. These questions challenge students to broaden their interests and explore a variety of academic areas. Striving to ask those questions well and make good moral and ethical judgments about them is at the heart of our colleges' mission.
The Core Curriculum is composed of four levels of requirements:
Foreign language proficiency
Students demonstrate proficiency in speaking or reading a classical or modern language through satisfactory completion of the language proficiency exam or through satisfactory completion of Modern/Classical Language 211 (with any passing grade).
Students demonstrate proficiency in elementary algebra and geometry through satisfactory completion of the mathematics proficiency exam or calculus readiness exam.
Fine Arts Experience
First Year Students beginning Fall 2001 must complete the Fine Arts Experience requirement by attending 8 designated Fine Arts Experience Events -- four events per semester.
First-Year Symposium (2 courses)-- CORE 100 & 101, or HONR 100 &101
Senior Seminar--CORE 390 or HONR 390 only. Education majors can complete EDUC 390 and SWRK majors can complete SWRK 390. Ordinarily completed during Senior year. Cannot be repeated for credit. Both semesters of First-Year Symposium must already be completed.
Only courses which are designated within the course title by the appropriate symbol (FA, HML, MT, JC, etc) may be used to complete the following disciplinary requirements.
Courses may carry 1 or more flags, in addition to meeting Core disciplinary or Major requirements. Flagged courses are specific to the instructor and term. Flagged courses are listed in the Class Schedule and updated lists are posted at the Office of the Registrar.
