McGhee undergraduate core courses and required courses combine an in-depth exploration of the liberal arts with practical, professional studies that expand your critical thinking and analytical skills, increase your knowledge, and develop your intellect.
Central to a McGhee education is a strong foundation in the liberal arts. An academic requirement that all McGhee students must fulfill, the 32 to 34 credits of liberal arts core courses provide critical information and develop a broad range of competencies that afford the basis for more specialized and professionally oriented study. The curriculum is enriched by McGhee’s access to the exceptional cultural, economic, political, creative, technical, and business resources of New York City.
Alongside peers and faculty members, in and outside the classroom, you will engage in, learn from, and lead dynamic intellectual explorations and shared experiences. You will learn to communicate complex ideas effectively through core courses that will help you to develop precise and persuasive writing skills. The core curriculum provides broad conceptual understanding and critical insights—in science, history, culture, and the arts—that strengthen creative and analytical thinking and reasoning abilities. The knowledge and the skills that you will acquire will provide the context and the methodological approaches essential to understanding and to solving the real-world challenges that you will face in almost all professional arenas.
