The bachelor’s degree at The College of Saint Rose builds on a balanced foundation of study in the arts and sciences that creates a context for advanced study in each major. The Core courses reflect learning outcomes related to the mission and institutional goals of the College. These outcomes are expressed in the form of learning objectives, which are collectively articulated in The College of Saint Rose Liberal Education Goal Statement. To ensure that these learning objectives effectively promote student learning, The Core curriculum is assessed regularly by the faculty. Students should consult the catalog they entered under for specific requirements. If an approved Core course is required in the major, that course may satisfy the corresponding Core requirement. The Core courses are characterized in part by attention to such skills as writing, critical thinking and information literacy. Courses which fulfill designated areas of The Core requirements are identified under the course descriptions found in that section of the catalog.
