Through the Boston College Core Curriculum, undergraduates acquire a common intellectual foundation. They experience an intensive grounding in the defining works of the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences, introducing them to the forces that have shaped world history and culture. This focus broadens students’ intellectual horizons while shaping their characters and helping them learn how to discern well—preparing them for meaningful lives and rewarding careers.
POD Leaders are juniors or seniors interested in being academic and social mentors for first-year students. POD Leaders attend course lectures and run a weekly discussion for 15 first-year students in the course.
