Breadth. Depth. Integration.
The Liberal and Civic Studies major seeks the education of the whole person. In addition to traditional academic goals, it fosters the development of a disciplined mind, one that honors the great ideas of the past, examines ideas across disciplines, and strives to understand the important issues facing today's world from multiple perspectives.
The Liberal & Civic Studies Program is based on the three following principles:
|Breadth through a balance of required Liberal & Civic Studies Program core courses, along with additional courses in the social sciences, mathematics, laboratory sciences, humanities, fine arts, and religious studies.|
|Depth fostered by an interdisciplinary curriculum content approach that weaves together critical thinking, local and global perspectives, leadership and civic responsibility -- enhanced by service-learning experiences.|
|Integration achieved through an rigorous fusion of course work, assessments, and cross-discipline interactions.|
