A liberal education consists of two parts, a core curriculum and study in depth in a major field. All undergraduate degree-seeking students initially enroll in the College of Arts and Sciences, where they fulfill division requirements of the University Core Curriculum. The liberal arts deal with the creative, social and scientific developments of past and present cultures and their ideals and human values. These studies impart an appreciation for complexity and the ability to think critically, to solve and resolve problems, and to write and speak with precision and clarity.

The John Carroll Core Curriculum in the Liberal Arts is informed by the principles that issue from the University's mission as a Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher learning. Accordingly, the Core emphasizes the development of whole human persons who are educated in the humanizing arts and sciences; skilled in expression and in scholarly investigation; and aware of the interrelationship of all knowledge and the interdependence of all peoples. Moreover, it promotes the integreation of faith and culture by imparting a deeper knowledge of, and respect for, the students' own cultural and religious traditions as well as those of others. Finally, it highlights intellectual, moral and spiritual principles, and the responsible social actions which flow from them.

The second part of their liberal education has students concentrating study in a major filed. The liberal arts Core and major programs are integrated into a coherent educational experience ot prepare studnets for positions of leadership and service in professional, business and services careers.
