Core Curriculum


Pathways supplement the Core Curriculum and prepare students for intelligent, responsible and creative citizenship.

Pathways, clusters of courses with a common theme, promote integrative and intentional learning. More specifically, they cultivate the ability to make intentional and reflective educational choices, to study a theme from a number of disciplinary or methodological perspectives, and to perceive connections and relationships among ideas.
