Pepperdine University

Malibu, CA

Pepperdine University says, "Upon completion of this curriculum, students will have a sound foundation in the core competencies and thus will be well prepared to write and speak effectively, think critically, conduct informed research, and interpret quantitative data. Recognizing that an awareness of difference/diversity is essential to success in the modern world, the curriculum provides opportunities to explore cultures, values, and ideas that situate the student within the global community and foster the ability to empathize with others. The variety of courses introduces each student to academic disciplines and ways of thinking that are different from his or her own and thus broadens each student’s perspectives." [Source]
