New York University

New York, NY

NYU says, 'The College Core Curriculum represents the essence of the American tradition of liberal arts education'the humanities, arts, social sciences, mathematics, and the natural sciences'areas of inquiry that are pursued for the sake of expanding human knowledge, rather than as training for a particular profession. Education in the liberal arts does not involve a fixed canon of knowledge; instead, it builds your critical, analytic, and communications skills, hones the imagination, and promotes creative thinking.'
