The University of San Diego says, "The University of San Diego's core curriculum fosters the pursuit of knowledge through active student and faculty participation in core courses throughout a student's academic program. The core promotes critical appreciation of beauty, truth and goodness in the context of engagement with the Catholic intellectual tradition and diverse faith communities. The high academic standards of the core curriculum will sharpen student learning in critical thinking and analytical thinking, and increase competency skills in writing, oral communication and cognitive reasoning. Students will be well equipped to creatively envision, articulate and apply new solutions to the problems of today and be prepared to confront humanity's urgent challenges." [Source]
