More tools for your toolbox.
Everything you learn in your Core Curriculum classes the first few semesters at Butler is designed to make you a sharper thinker, a stronger writer, and a better connector of (seemingly) unrelated concepts. It’s a demanding curriculum—made for those who embrace a good challenge.
Skills that will set you up for years to come.
A Butler education goes much deeper than career preparation. Our graduates learn to see the complexities of the world and use their knowledge as a force for good.
Regardless of major, you’ll take classes in our Core Curriculum—a set of classes that establish the concepts and skills you need to meet the rigors of college and the challenges you’ll encounter outside it.
At its heart, the Core Curriculum shoulders the promise of a liberal arts education: It fosters a well-rounded perspective on the world, while encouraging you to act in the interests of others. The Core Curriculum will challenge you intellectually, pushing you to investigate fields that may be outside your comfort zone. The sciences, the arts, history, and more are all covered.
Gaming to Make a Difference
“We worked with a local nonprofit to create a video game for people with autism to help them learn how to develop friendships and help identify social cues. This has been one of my favorite classes at Butler because of the immediate impact we had on our client and the community.”
