The Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC) is the center of every Marquette University student’s educational experience. The learning outcomes of the Core are rooted in Jesuit perspective and values, and focus on creating students who communicate responsibly and ethically, engage the world as moral actors and citizens with purpose, collaborate with diverse others using a broad disciplinary focus, and become leaders in discovery to solve global problems. For more information about the goals of the Core Curriculum, visit the Learning Outcomes page.
