The Marylhurst Core, required for all bachelor's degree-seeking students, encompasses four areas of learning:
Analytical & Applied Learning
Demonstrate critical thinking through the capacity to analyze ideas and to apply theory in practice.
Academic Skills & Foundations
Enhance skills in written communication, argumentation, research, information literacy, dialog and quantitative reasoning.
Solve problems using multiple perspectives through a variety of intellectual tools and disciplinary approaches.
Critical Reflection & Integrative Learning
Reflect on your entire learning experience, synthesizing ideas to make relevant claims about significant social or cultural problems.
All Marylhurst Core requirements may be met through transfer coursework except:
MC 201 Entering Student Seminar
