Civic Engagement & the Core Curriculum

The Arts and Sciences core curriculum, taught within a community of Christian scholars, enables men and women to acquire the knowledge, skills, and virtues needed to uncover and recognize truth, to deepen their faith, to live virtuously, to strengthen their communities, and to affect the world in transformative ways.

Over the course of the next few years, the College of Arts & Sciences is in the process of implementing a Civic Engagement component to the Core Curriculum.  As we phase in the requirement, students, at present, may substitute one of the following courses with a Civic Engagement experience in place of their Lifetime Fitness requirement:
