Core Curriculum

All undergraduates share a common core curriculum designed to ensure students have a well-rounded base of knowledge and to spark academic curiosity. Each student will have additional school- and major-specific requirements depending on the area(s) of study.

In response to an increasingly globalized world, the core curriculum focuses on multidisciplinary academic and community experiences. One highlight of the core curriculum is the value placed on public service. All students are required to participate in one or more service-learning courses, which bridge classroom instruction and community practice.
