University of Portland

Portland, OR

The University of Portland says, 'The University of Portland's Core Curriculum has two central premises. Its first premise is that no discipline by itself is sufficient to discover the truth. Reasoned inquiry must cross scholarly disciplines to engage and inform each of them. In the Catholic intellectual tradition, there is an emphasis on strong and diverse core requirements in order to prompt cross disciplinary engagement with fundamental questions of existence. At University of Portland the Core Curriculum promotes the virtue of intellectual humility by cultivating an awareness of what is not known while provoking the search for truth.' [Source]
