Arts and Science Core Curriculum

The Fordham University Core Curriculum, recently revised by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, is central to its larger mission and identity as a university in the Catholic and Jesuit traditions preparing students for responsible leadership in a global society.

As stated in the university missions statement, "Fordham affirms the value of a core curriculum rooted in the liberal arts and sciences. The University seeks to foster in all its students life-long habits of careful observation, critical thinking, creativity, moral reflection, and articulate expression."

The core curriculum advances the design of the undergraduate curriculum as a whole. As students' majors and electives allow specialization and individualization in their studies, the core curriculum assures that every student's undergraduate education is anchored, as a whole, in the liberal arts as presented by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences..

The Fordham Core Curriculum is unique in its integration of requirements throughout the student's attendance and development at the university.
