The Common Curriculum (CC) stands as a clear expression of the Jesuit vision of education. The CC serves to provide a foundation in a genuinely humanistic education - in philosophy, religious studies, literature, history, the sciences, and the arts - complementing the major fields of study of every undergraduate's program. The CC is designed to challenge students to develop all of their talents to the fullest; it calls for critical thinking, reflection, and disciplined study. The program is comprised of introductory and advanced courses, which vary slightly depending on the student's major or college.
The CC has recently been revised. Students are expected to fulfill the CC requirements of their entering year, and are encouraged to contact their faculty advisor with any questions. This is especially true for students in programs that have articulated exceptions to CC requirements.
The revised core will be implemented over five years, with the revised CC program to take effect Fall 2013 along with a full offering of Introductory and Advanced CC courses.
Students who began their program of study at Loyola University New Orleans prior to fall semester 2013 can find their CC requirments in the University Bulletin Archives. Students with questions about their CC requirements, especially those concerning completion of a program of study, should contact their faculty advisors, or access the resources available on the Academic Advising website.
