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.
"Making the Modern World" is a Complex Problem course taught in the University Core Curriculum at Boston College that fulfills Natural Science, History, & Cultural Diversity core requirements. It is taught by Profs. Jenna Tonn and Jonathan Krones with labs run by Core Fellows, Luke R. Perreault, PhD and Héctor Rodríguez-Simmonds.
