The Core Curriculum is the foundation of all undergraduate learning at the Brooklyn Campus. It provides a common educational experience that is academically challenging, enriching students’ understanding of themselves and the world around them. Students will learn to appreciate different perspectives, to consider openly new and diverse thinking, to investigate ideas with careful skepticism, and to question conventional wisdom. They will develop analytical thinking and questioning skills and become thoughtful and discerning readers, writers, and speakers. The Core is designed to integrate distinct areas of learning and to develop an appreciation of the difference and commonalities among us all. For a full description of the Core Curriculm, please review pages 16 and 17 of the LIU Brooklyn 2013-2014 Undergraduate Bulletin.
