Core Curriculum


No matter which major you ultimately choose, all full-time Tulane undergraduates complete the Newcomb-Tulane College Core Curriculum, gaining exposure to the humanities, fine arts, social sciences and sciences, and taking at least one service learning course. This is about more than "checking requirements off a list." This is a well-rounded, interdisciplinary curriculum. The Core Curriculum ensures that every Tulane undergraduate – whether a future doctor or future poet – has a shared academic experience. Get ready to learn how to think critically.  Get ready to compare and contrast different approaches to learning. Get ready to be prepared for anything.
