The Core Curriculum

Le Moyne's Core Curriculum is central to our Catholic and Jesuit mission of graduating students who are liberally educated, passionately curious, and actively engaged in the promotion of peace and justice in their personal and professional lives. Le Moyne graduates are committed to building and serving the world in dynamic, principled and generous ways. Inspired by the signature Jesuit quest to seek God in all things, the Core fosters an understanding of knowledge as a means to service and leadership in an interdependent world.

Core courses provide a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences for all undergraduate programs. In these courses Le Moyne students deepen their understanding of the diverse ways in which women and men throughout history have responded to enduring questions about meaning and order in the physical universe, in social and political processes, and in human experience. They also refine critical thinking and communication skills as they work together to analyze these responses. Some core courses include a service learning component; students participate in projects designed to respond to community needs and then reflect on their attempts to connect course content and action for justice.Learn more about the Core

The Integral Honors Program

The Integral Honors Program provides a unique educational opportunity for exceptional students to pursue advanced learning. The interdisciplinary, team-taught honors courses foster critical thought and encourage creative synthesis of ideas from many disciplines and many eras. Coursework that is focused largely within the humanities (and meets Core Curriculum requirements) explores the human experience in the context of history, stressing the development of civilizations and the connections and interrelationships that have molded our world. Integral Honors students make their own contribution to knowledge in their senior thesis research project, the culmination of their education in the Integral Honors Program. The goal of the program is to graduate students not only with the highest degree Le Moyne College offers but also with a love of learning and an exceptional foundation of understanding from which to continue a lifelong journey of exploration.

Students of all majors are invited to join the Integral Honors Program in the fall of their first year at the College, and the students in each honors class move through the program together for the next four years.  Honors courses are taught by a select team of faculty from a variety of disciplines. Excellent teachers and scholars, they provide honors students with a rich array of perspectives and experiences. Classes are small, which enables free exchange of ideas among peers and enhances student-professor relationships. The Honors Penthouse in Grewen Hall, available to honors students 24 hours a day, provides a comfortable environment for studying and socializing, as well as a place for student-sponsored activities and events, including dinners, parties, lectures, films and discussions.
