Our purpose in Core is to build a community of readers, thinkers, creators and doers at the heart of the College of Arts & Sciences. Through a program of elective interdisciplinary learning with a common curriculum, Core students and faculty engage with foundational texts and inquiry that frames each academic discipline in CAS. Our shared undertaking is to translate the tradition of great works into important discussions and conversations that meet the challenge of our present moment.
