Introduction

The curriculum of CSB/SJU consists of the common curriculum, a common sequence of courses for all students and major fields of study in specific academic disciplines. The common curriculum reflects the tradition of Benedictine education with its focus on the intrinsic value of understanding the wisdom of the humanities, natural and social sciences and the fine arts. The academic major offers the student the opportunity to develop analytical thinking, intellectual creativity and the discipline of specialization in the context of a particular discipline or subject matter. The following pages detail the academic programs and regulations of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University.
