Liberal Arts Advantage

BC's approach to liberal arts education challenges students to learn across disciplines, prepares them for a range of rewarding careers, and helps them discern who they want to be—and why.

The Core Curriculum

The centerpiece of Jesuit education has always been a common curriculum that emphasizes the rigorous study of the defining works of the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences.
