Spelman College says, "The Core Curriculum, formerly general education, teaches the knowledge, skills and abilities that freethinking women of African descent should possess. It emphasizes critical thinking, analytical and problem solving skills in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and fine arts in addition to international and gender studies. The structure of the core curriculum supports progressive development of our students’ intellectual agency within an interdisciplinary context and is scaffolded throughout the four years of the undergraduate experience."
