Culture and the Common Good: A Liberal Arts Education at Fontbonne

This revised general education curriculum took effect for incoming first-year students in fall of 2012 and for transfer students in fall 2014. Called Culture and the Common Good, this curriculum embraces a global perspective, history, social justice and diversity.

“The theme of culture and the common good reflects Fontbonne’s mission to prepare leaders to serve a world in need, which requires an understanding of culture, the vehicle for changing ideologies and imaginations. Because imagining and building intelligent and moral alternatives for the future intersects with every area of life, this study requires an interdisciplinary approach.”
