The Saint Mary's Core Curriculum

The Saint Mary's Core Curriculum is the foundation of student learning at Saint Mary’s College.  It is an intentional, developmental, and integrated program of study designed to educate students in three broad intellectual areas: Habits of Mind, Pathways to Knowledge, and Engaging the World. The SMC Core is student-centered, focused on the skills, knowledge, and values that our students will learn in their time at Saint Mary’s.
