Bellarmine University

Louisville, KY

Bellarmine University says, 'The very heart of the university curriculum is the liberal arts core, which consists of a body of general education courses required of all students. These requirements have a twofold purpose. They seek, first of all, to help students develop the skills of a liberally educated person: reading, writing, thinking, and speaking. Secondly, and most importantly, they seek, through the use of these skills, to help students acquire a breadth and depth of vision by exploring the humanizing disciplines, those that expand the mind and soul and challenge us to realize the full range of our human potentiality.'
