The Core Curriculum:
Cabrini’s core curriculum, Justice Matters, develops a common core of knowledge and connects the theory and practice of social justice to each student’s major.
Justice Matters includes a sequence of developmentally linked, writing-intensive courses taken in the first, second, and third years, as well as a capstone project in the major during the fourth year.
It defines the contemporary Cabrinian education through academic excellence, social justice, and transformational learning.
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.
- First-semester students take a College-Success Seminar that prepares them for the Cabrini experience.
- A three-year, three-course sequence raises awareness of social problems, explores root causes, involves students hands-on in social justice issues, and connects the theory and practice of social justice to each student’s major.
- Students learn foundational skills in information technology, foreign languages, mathematics, science, and religious studies.
- Getting a broad exposure to various disciplinary experiences, students learn to understand themselves as products of and participants in creative traditions, institutions, the historical process, and value-driven decision making.
Students should consult the Undergraduate Catalog for the year they matriculated at Cabrini for core curriculum and major requirements.
