The University of Montevallo says, "The core curriculum is the most complete embodiment of the University's mission as Alabama's publicly funded liberal arts college. In this curriculum, the University bears continually in mind the special meaning of freedom embodied in the term 'liberal arts': the arts that free or enable students to explore the perennial questions that confront every thoughtful human being - questions about nature, human nature and society, and metaphysics."
