Campbell University says, "The General College Curriculum, or GCC, is a collection of baccalaureate courses in the traditional liberal arts disciplines of the trivium and quadrivium. The purpose of requiring this two years of study prior to undertaking the major and minor fields is 1) to provide students the opportunity to acquire and solidify skills in reading, writing, and critical thinking which are fundamental to all other disciplines, and 2) to enable students to gain the experience and knowledge needed to achieve the spiritual, philosophical, historical, aesthetic, and scientific foundations necessary to understand and evaluate human experience from a Christian perspective as well as to enjoy the good life motivated by charity and concern for others."
