University College Core Curriculum

The University College Core Curriculum enables students to develop the skills and general knowledge that are essential to success in their major programs and careers after graduation.

The Core Curriculum is structured around a set of Core Learning Outcomes, which state what students should know and be able to do upon completion of the core requirements. There are eight Core Learning Outcomes organized in four main groups:

These courses help the students develop the physical, mental, organizational, and financial skills necessary for success at the university and beyond.

ESSENTIAL SKILLS provide the foundations of communication, reasoning, and inquiry needed for success in every human endeavor.
