William & Mary: The College Curriculum
For a very long time, the William &Mary Undergraduate Catalog has contained these words: "A liberal education, although it has no single fixed definition, is more than a haphazard accumulation of courses. Its essential purpose is to liberate and broaden the mind, to produce men and women with vision and perspective as well as specific practical skills and knowledge." What does that mean today?
All undergraduate students share the College Curriculum experience — a set of specially designed courses that connect and integrate knowledge from the major and the electives, extending across four years.
