TO VIEW THE CATAMOUNT CORE CURRICULUM (CCC) COURSES, SELECT "MENU" AND THE APPROPRIATE CCC CATEGORY
All undergraduate degree students matriculating in Fall 2023 or later are required to successfully complete the Catamount Core Curriculum Requirements.
The Catamount Core Curriculum is designed to expose students to the intellectual breadth of the liberal arts, develop the skills needed to integrate and apply diverse areas of knowledge, and build the foundations for lifelong learning and active participation in local and global communities.
The Catamount Core Curriculum is made up of 42 credits in courses distributed across three main areas: LIBERAL ARTS (21 credits); CORE SKILLS (9 credits); and COMMON GROUND VALUES (12 credits).
Students will be able to take courses that fulfill more than one category BUT they MUST still take at least 40 unique credits of courses that have been approved to fulfill Catamount Core Curriculum requirements.
