Pasadena City College 2014-15 University Core

UNIVERSITY CORE REQUIREMENTS
PASADENA CITY COLLEGE

The LMU University Core emphasizes the formation of students as whole persons, integrated in thinking, feeling, and action.  It is organized around three broad areas, each containing 5 - 6 category requirements. Courses used for major requirements may be used, if approved, to fulfill one of the area categories, thus reducing the number of courses required to complete the Core. The following are the three Core areas:

Foundations:
-- introduces students to the intellectual life of LMU
-- guides them to confront important issues about values, faith, justice, race, gender, sexuality, and culture
-- emphasizes fundamental communication and reasoning skills

Exploration:
-- builds on the skills and knowledge gained in the Foundations
-- refines the Foundations courses through the different disciplinary methods and perspectives of the
   humanities, arts, natural sciences, and social sciences

Integrations:
-- challenges students to take the skills and knowledge from the Foundations and Explorations and apply them
   to interdisciplinary consideration of thematic questions

Transfer students may fulfill the designated categories for Foundations and Explorations.  Requirements for Integrations must be fulfilled at LMU.

The following courses from Pasadena City College will fulfill the following Core categories.  Students choose one course for each category:
