Canisius College says, "The Canisius College Core Curriculum is rooted in the humanistic ideals of the Catholic intellectual tradition and Jesuit pedagogy with its emphases on academic excellence, the dialogue of faith and reason, and service to humanity. The Core Curriculum seeks to provide Canisius students with a strong foundation in the humanities and liberal arts as the first step in a transformative experience that will expose them to the richness of human diversity and infuse them with a sense of service in the cause of justice for all peoples, but especially for the poor and marginalized of the world."
