What is Baker Core?

Baker Core incorporates an essential part of a liberal arts education: well-roundedness. While each Baker Core class has a different theme, the main idea of each of them is to provide you with transferable skills you can use for the rest of your life. Baker Core classes aim at teaching you critical thinking and critical reading, research abilities, and writing skills through the lens of multiple disciplines: creative arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. 

Today's attitude toward higher education paints it as a means to an end: you get an education so that you can get a job. Baker Core takes us back to the original intentions behind higher education: expanding your knowledge and broadening your worldview. Baker Core aims to help you, the students, be well-rounded and critically thinking citizens.
