General College Curriculum


The General College Curriculum, or GCC, is a collection of baccalaureate courses inspired by the traditional liberal arts disciplines of the trivium (grammar, rhetoric, and logic) and quadrivium (arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and music). By requiring this course of study prior to undertaking the major and minor fields, the University aims to (1) provide students the opportunity to acquire and solidify skills in reading, writing, and critical thinking which are fundamental to all other disciplines; and (2) enable students to gain the experience and knowledge needed to achieve the spiritual, philosophical, historical, aesthetic, and scientific foundations necessary to understand and evaluate human experience from a Christian perspective as well as to enjoy a good life motivated by charity and concern for others.

The General College Curriculum is designed to parallel and reinforce the General Education Competencies of Campbell University. Therefore, the GCC addresses the following competencies:

Inquiry (Reading, Mathematics, Critical Thinking, Research, and Problem-Solving)

Communication (Written, Oral, Non-Verbal)

Value Formation (Spiritual, Civic, Cultural, Global Awareness/ Understanding)

 

Students pursuing the B.A., B.M., B.S., B.S.W., B.B.A., B.S.N., and B.S.E. degrees must complete the General College Curriculum with any minor modifications noted herein for the appropriate degree program.
