Academic Curriculum

Core Curriculum

In keeping with the Jesuit educational philosophy, the PCS core curriculum is designed to provide the student with a broad humanistic background. As students’ majors and electives allow specialization and individualization in their studies, the core curriculum assures that every student’s undergraduate education is anchored, as a whole, in the liberal arts. The PCS core enables students to go beyond mere proficiency and achieve a level of excellence in the essential skills of literacy. Excellence in the expressive skills of writing and speaking with logical clarity is founded on the arts of reading, listening, observing, thinking, and mastery and thorough understanding of the topic under consideration. Education in the liberal arts has traditionally been called “liberal” for several reasons, but among them is the fact that these arts engender the ability to form judgments based on sound reasoning, free of prejudice and free of insufficiently examined premises. The PCS core enables the student to sample a range of academic disciplines and fields of study, and provides a solid foundation for achievement in any of them.

The core curriculum consists of 12 courses. Select advanced placement credit and college courses taken elsewhere may be considered for core transfer credit. Students will ordinarily be expected to complete, at Fordham, at least one course in literature, philosophy, theology, and history, with the guidance of their academic adviser.

ENGL 1101 Composition I: One Required Course (dependent on advisement)

Instruction in sentence and paragraph construction, reading comprehension skills and analysis, the basic principles of grammar with an emphasis on diagnosing and solving persistent problems, and principles of argumentation and evidence. Weekly assignments and regular grammar exercises to build confidences and competence in college writing.

ENGL 1102 Composition II: One Required Course

This course will build competence and confidence in the use of language for analytic, dialogic, and expressive purposes, develop basic reasoning skills and skills of close and attentive reading, enrich an appreciation of the power and importance of language, and help students learn sound practices with respect to conventions of citation, quotation, paraphrase, and documentation. Prerequisite: Depending on placement, ENGL 1101 Composition I may be required. To move to ENGL 1102 Composition II from ENGL 1101 Composition I, a grade of C or better is required.

ENGL 2000 Texts and Contexts: One Required Course

The introductory core course in English literature, which may include literature in translation, will teach the arts of literary interpretation by developing techniques of close reading, an appreciation of the relations among literary works and the contexts in which they are written and read, and an ability to write critically about the interplay between text and context. The sections of this course will offer students choice among thematic and topical foci, which will be specified in each section title and spelled out in the section’s description. Prerequisite: ENGL 1102 Composition II

PHIL 1000 Philosophy of Human Nature: One Required Course

A philosophical reflection on the central metaphysical and epistemological questions surrounding human nature, which includes discussion of some or all of the following problems: the body/soul distinction and the mind/body problem; the problem of knowledge (relativism, skepticism, the objectivity of knowledge, faith, and reason); free will and determinism; and self and society (subjectivity, personhood, sociality, historicity, and tradition). At least 60 percent of each section of the course is devoted to readings from Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, and Descartes. Each section includes some writings by at least one contemporary figure.

THEO 1000 Faith and Critical Reason: One Required Course

An introduction to fundamental theological issues, including the dialectic between religion and modernity that has shaped our cultural heritage, and some of the ways that various cultures and individuals have confronted the pressing questions of meaning in human life. When apposite, comparisons with religious traditions other than Christianity are made.

HIST 1***: Understanding Historical Change: One Required Course

Through the introduction to the discipline of history, students will begin to achieve knowledge of the structure of societies, how they function, and how they change. Each section of the course will consider how to assess evidence, identify and evaluate differing and often contradictory explanations and arguments, and appraise the relative scale and importance of particular changes in the past. Students will be able to choose from different sections of the course each with the title Understanding Historical Change, and a descriptive subtitle such as Ancient Greece, American History, etc.

Natural Science: One Course in Physical Science or Life Science

Students will also develop skills in critical thinking and discernment; qualitative and quantitative reasoning; written and oral communication; and formulation, analysis, and solution of complex problems. With knowledge of the basic principles of science, students will be able to evaluate the legal, moral, and ethical issues that will affect their lives after they graduate. Science courses for non-science majors include Health and Disease; Human Biology; Human Function and Dysfunction; Life on Planet Earth; Physics of Everyday Life; Alchemy to Astrophysics; People and the Living Environment; and Ecology: A Human Approach.

Science majors will fulfill this core requirement through their major courses.

Courses at this level will generally be numbered in the 3000 range and may be taken when students have completed the introductory disciplinary courses in the area..

PHIL 3000 Philosophical Ethics: One Required Course

This course involves philosophical reflection on the major normative ethical theories underlying moral decision making in our everyday lives. The principal focus of the course is a systematic introduction to the main normative ethical theories, i.e., eudaimonism, natural law ethics, deontological ethics, utilitarianism, virtue ethics, and feminism. The differences among these approaches are illuminated by studying various moral issues. In each section of the course, at least half the readings will be selected from Aristotle and Kant. Each section will include writings by at least one contemporary figure..

Sacred Texts and Traditions: One Required Course

The second theology course, selected from a group of offerings relating to sacred texts and traditions, builds on the foundation of critical reasoning about traditions in the first theology course through analytical study of one religious textual tradition.
