What is the Baccalaureate Core? The Baccalaureate Core curriculum represents what the OSU faculty believe is the foundation for students' further understanding of the modern world. Informed by natural and social sciences, arts, and humanities, the Baccalaureate Core requires students to think critically and creatively, and to synthesize ideas and information when evaluating major societal issues. Importantly, the Baccalaureate Core promotes understanding of interrelationships among disciplines in order to increase students' capacities as ethical citizens of an ever-changing world. Use the OSU-Cascades Baccalaureate Core guide help plan your Baccalaureate Core experience at OSU-Cascades. Each OSU undergraduate completes the Bacc Core.

Important Note: Courses that were Bacc Core previously may change in Fall 2021. Use the Schedule of Classes advanced search to search by Bacc Core subject and work with your advisor. Do not rely on previous Bacc Core guides.
