• Common Curriculum

    At the heart of every student’s education is a program of coursework known as the Common Curriculum. Centered on the most fundamental questions in the liberal arts and science, it will offer students some understanding of the natural world, human psyche and social life, literature, the arts and history, and philosophical and mathematical thought.
