Common Academic Program

The Common Academic Program (CAP) is the portion of the curriculum shared by all undergraduate students, starting with the entering class in 2013. It embodies seven UD learning goals: scholarship, faith traditions, diversity, community, practical wisdom, critical evaluation of our times, and vocation. The courses challenge students and faculty to link aspects of their own lives, majors, and careers to a broader world. Students' unique learning experiences promote knowledge, skills and dispositions through engaging, developmental, and integrated courses and experiences that are necessary for 21st Century graduates.
