Guided by a strong intellectual tradition, Holy Cross College offers a liberal arts education advancing the mission of the Brothers of Holy Cross. Our core curriculum requirements build students into scholars and leaders known for critical thinking and deep wisdom, citizens immersed in local and global communities, and disciples with a passion for service.
For students pursuing undergraduate degrees, choosing a major or minor guides the curriculum for earning that degree. The major is a specified concentration of courses in a department which develop expertise in the concepts and high-level work in the discipline. Holy Cross College has twelve majors. Our twenty different academic minors supply a supplemental second discipline of study and concentration that often compliments a student’s major.
