Undergraduate Core Curriculum
At DePaul, our core curriculum — the Liberal Studies Program
— consists of two primary components: the Common Core
and six distinct learning domains
. Both components emphasize critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills, all taught in small classes with professors who care about students as individuals (93% of undergraduate classes have fewer than 40 students). If you're looking for a more intense challenge, you can apply to the university Honors Program
as an alternative to the core curriculum.
All undergraduate students (except in the School for New Learning) participate in the Liberal Studies Program, regardless of their college and major (although requirements
vary by college).
