Quinnipiac University says, "A Quinnipiac education fosters in-depth learning, the gaining of disciplinary expertise (the major), and promotes an interdisciplinary understanding of the expertise in local and global contexts (the University Curriculum). In addition, a QU education inspires students to learn how to work independently both in and outside the classroom to gain a closer and more complex sense of themselves as citizens, intellectuals and human beings."
