The Core Curriculum

In anatomy, electricity, arguments, and apples, the core is the central source of strength and stability. Our core curriculum is built on that same essential principle, providing students with a common foundation for thinking critically with an eye toward a greater good.

Thinking Outside of the Checkbox

At universities around the country, you’ll find variations of a core curriculum. But at USF it’s different: Here, the core is the heart of who we are and our unique style of education. It’s where students unearth new passions, satisfy their curiosity for complex questions, and challenge the boundaries of their values and traditions.
