Mercyhurst University

Erie, PA

Mercyhurst University says its Core Curriculum's "purpose is less the teaching of facts than the teaching of ways to think and ways to learn...The focus of the Core Curriculum is, therefore, on introducing methods of inquiry and critical, analytical and synthetic reasoning within broad conceptual structures encompassing the past, present and future. Its basic goal is to develop learned, reflective, and spiritually mature persons for meaningful lives of work, contemplation, and service."Source
