Mount St. Mary's University says that its core curriculum is "Rooted in the Catholic understanding of God, creation, and the human person, the curriculum treats knowledge as an end in itself and aspires to integrate natural and revealed truth in a comprehensive vision of the whole. Students encounter this vision and are encouraged to embrace it reflectively, mindful of other viewpoints within and outside their own cultures." [Source]
