The Core.

It has defined us for more than 150 years. And it will define you for a lifetime. The core curriculum at Loyola is the foundation for a rich and meaningful intellectual life.

In the core, you'll be exposed to critical knowledge in a wide variety of subjects including math, philosophy, ethics, art, and theology. Some you'll be familiar with, while others will be completely new to you. Some will force you out of your comfort zone. By studying the core, you'll develop lifelong habits of curiosity, honesty, persistence, and a passion for the pursuit of knowledge. When the time comes to do something different for a living (and research shows that it will), you'll be ready.
