Core Curriculum


Santa Clara’s 194,000-square-foot library has 25 study rooms, three terraces, three video viewing and taping rooms, and 1,100 reader seats.

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.
