Preparing students to tackle some of the big challenges facing the world is the idea behind Justice Matters, Cabrini's groundbreaking new core curriculum.
Justice Matters includes a sequence of developmentally linked, writing intensive courses taken in the first, second, and third years, and a capstone project in the fourth year. It defines the contemporary Cabrinian education through academic excellence, social justice, and transformational learning.
Justice Matters develops a common core of knowledge. Students learn skills that will advance their careers and that can be used for the benefit of their communities, linking theory to practice in the world, preparing them for professional careers through a rigorous liberal learning experience.
College 101 - A College Success Seminar that prepares students for the Cabrini College experience.
Engagements with the Common Good - A four-year, four-course sequence that raises awareness of social problems, explores their root causes, involves students hands-on in social justice issues, and connects the theory and practice of social justice to each student’s major.
The Explorations – A range of courses that provides a broad exposure to various disciplinary experiences. In particular, these courses teach students to understand themselves as products of - and participants in - institutions, creative traditions, the historical process, and value-driven decision making.
