Sure, every university has a core curriculum — a set of courses needed to graduate. But only Oglethorpe has the Core. Ask any student, and you’ll find the Core is as central to the Oglethorpe experience as the gray stonework of its gorgeous Gothic campus. The Core is a sequence of courses intentionally designed to challenge perceptions, evoke questions, transform perspectives, and create connections. It’s the kind of intensive intellectual exercise that could only happen in a small, supportive community like Oglethorpe. The Core is what makes our graduates sharper thinkers, better writers and stronger leaders, who excel in whatever they choose.
