The Core Curriculum

From "Extended Core" to "Major Cultures"

Event Date: 
1990

The Standing Committee on the Core creates the "Extended Core" requirement. It requires students to take courses in cultures not covered in CC and Humanities.  The Standing Committee maintains a list of courses that may be chosen to fill the requirement.

Later revisions would change the requirement once more and call it "Major Cultures". Under the Major Cultures requirement, students take a sequence of two courses in either Asian, African, Latin American or Native American civilization.  A committee on Major Cultures maintains the lists.
