Core Curriculum Options

The core requirements are designed to complement the depth and focus of a major with breadth that allows students to put their major coursework into a broader intellectual context and to understand how other disciplines raise and answer important questions. The core also facilitates the exploration of prospective majors and, in some cases, serves as a foundation for more advanced coursework within the major.
