Our Core Curriculum is designed to help you broaden your horizons; to provide an immersion in the liberal arts, a foundation for your chosen field, and the critical thinking and understanding that is the beginning of a life of leadership.

A Boston College liberal arts education compels students to think and learn across disciplines, prepares graduates for a range of rewarding careers, and helps them discern who they want to be—and why. By exploring enduring questions and complex problems, liberal arts students acquire the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind and heart they will need to thrive as well-rounded, reflective people in a diverse, global society.
