The Core Curriculum is completed by all students matriculating in the School of Arts and Sciences and the New Brunswick Business School, including those planning to complete majors offered by the Edward J Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the Mason Gross School of the Arts bachelors' programs, the School of Communication and Information, the School of Management and Labor Relations, and the School of Social Work. The School of Environmental and Biological Sciences students also complete the core along with several additional SEBS-specific requirements.
The Core Curriculum focuses on the learning goals that form the core of liberal and sciences education at a leading 21st Century public research university. These goals permeate many of our courses and fields of study making fulfillment of Core requirements an integrated part of an undergraduate curriculum that also includes completing major, minor, and elective credits. Students exercise meaningful choice among courses specifically designed for the Core and introductory level offerings drawn from across disciplines.
