Expertise in Teaching Young Men
At Notre Dame, the Brothers of Holy Cross and their colleagues have become known for their particular expertise in educating young men, whose energy and interest need to be channeled if learning and character development are to take place. Seeking a balance between the two elements, schools founded and operated by the Congregation of Holy Cross place equal emphasis on academics and values. At Notre Dame, this student-centered education takes place both in and beyond the classroom.
This four-year program represents the usual sequence of courses to fulfill graduation requirements. However, more than the required number of electives may be added each year. Students are encouraged to select elective courses above the required number. They should plan their curriculum taking into consideration their possible career objectives, NCAA core requirements, and requirements for acceptance into the college(s) of their choice.
