Creighton University says, "The components that constitute the Magis Core Curriculum are intentionally selected to provide a congruous liberal educational experience for all undergraduate students. Students across all colleges interact, challenge ideas, and gain a deeper appreciation for diverse perspectives and experiences, thus promoting a culture of inquiry and mutual respect. A variety of course delivery methods, including distance education, are designed to foster student engagement. The Magis Core Curriculum promotes students' ethical reasoning and critical thinking, and prepares students to respond to life's challenges with discerning intelligence and thoughtful reflection. Committed to the inherent worth and dignity of each person, students gain an appreciation of ethnic and cultural diversity in all its forms, and develop a commitment to exploration of transcendent values and the promotion of justice."
