Learn the Core!
We have created a new Moodle course to help faculty, staff, and students understand the new Core Curriculum. Click here to get a grip on the Core!
Nazareth College has a new Core Curriculum. This new Core is all about integration—integrating the various ways that different disciplines explore Enduring Questions, engaging in three Integrative Studies courses that help you explore a question of your own, and participating in an Experiential Learning Pathway that helps you integrate what you have learned in the classroom with what is happening in the world.
What is a Core Curriculum?
(1) To provide you with a set of tools and skills that will enable you to be independent thinkers, problem solvers, superior communicators, and able to use and evaluate information from a variety of sources
(2) To provide you with opportunities to explore and reflect on the ethical, aesthetic, spiritual and intellectual values that make you who you are, and those of others--both those nearby and those from other cultures and countries.
What is different about the Core Curriculum at Nazareth?
(2) An opportunity to explore a question that interests you in three integrated upper-level courses.
(3) An Experiential Learning Pathway that you choose that relates to either your work in the Core or your Major (e.g., Service Learning, Study Abroad, Undergraduate Research, Student Leadership, Clinical or Student Teaching).
