The requirements listed below outline the kinds of courses you will need to take your first year and beyond in order to complete your degree and graduate from Bucknell. These requirements are different from the required courses you must take to major or minor in a program.
Students in all three Colleges must successfully complete three writing courses designated as W1 (one course) and W2 (two courses). The required W1 course must be taken in the first year and before a W2.
Students have all four years to complete the requirements for the College Core Curriculum.
The abbreviations you see below in the list of College Core Curriculum requirements indicate which requirements a course fulfills; these will also appear on the course description pages in myBucknell. Some courses can fulfill more than one requirement, but it is not always possible to use the same course to fulfill two different requirements. Although you will see below and in course listings online which requirements a particular course fulfills, we are only asking you to make selections by division: Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences & Mathematics.
1. Intellectual Skills
2. Disciplinary Perspectives – two courses in each division; one must meet divisional learning goals
3. Tools for Critical Engagement
4. Culminating Experience
1. Engineering 100
2. Four course credits in mathematics
3. Four course credits in science (specified by department)
