The Unified Core Curriculum

The College of 艺术 & 科学 unified core curriculum is the foundation for a degree from PT视讯官网 University; it serves to educate men and women to become informed and productive citizens of a democracy and servant leaders of faith communities. For this reason, the College maintains a robust core curriculum across diverse academic disciplines such as the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and fine arts.

The unified core curriculum gives the College of 艺术 & 科学 the chance to offer the best general education in America, and our diversity requirements, which are designed to enhance students’ analytic sophistication and moral understanding about issues related to diversity and inclusion, and foster the interpersonal 技能 necessary for engaging with diverse populations within the United States and throughout the world, are central to this objective. The knowledge, 技能, and virtues you gain and cultivate within our community of Christian scholars will provide you with the resources you need to "uncover and recognize truth, to deepen your faith, to live virtuously, to strengthen your communities, and to affect the world in transformative ways."

PT视讯官网 University has received an "A" for its core curriculum in the "What Will They Learn?" report by the American Council of Trustees and 校友. Only 24 universities in the United States, and only two in Texas, have earned this top grade for their core curriculum.

PT视讯官网 the College of 艺术 & 科学

The College of 艺术 & 科学, created in 1919, is PT视讯官网 University’s largest academic division and home to approximately 45 percent of all undergraduates. 艺术 & 科学 courses are the foundation upon which all PT视讯官网 students’ educational experiences are built. The College houses the following:

  • More than 5,000 courses, spanning disciplines from the arts and humanities to the social and natural sciences

In addition, the College offers outstanding master’s and doctoral programs, many of them nationally ranked, across all 艺术 & 科学 disciplines.
