The Manchester Core: A Program in the Liberal Arts

Manchester University seeks to develop in each student an appreciation for learning through an academic foundation grounded in the disciplines and in-depth study in specific majors. This combination prepares students for graduate school, the professions, and positions of leadership in all areas of society. A broad-based, flexible General Education curriculum in the liberal arts provides the most appropriate formal preparation to:

  • meet contemporary challenges,
  • fulfill career goals,
  • lead a purposeful, healthy and rewarding life, and
  • serve society as a responsible citizen.
