Foundational Literacies

The Brandeis Core enables you to focus on learning goals central to your academic and professional success: becoming an effective communicator, researcher and critical thinker. No matter your course of study or professional interests, these bedrock skills will prepare you for a life of learning and mastery.

With the exception of quantitative reasoning, you can fulfill these foundational literacies through courses and/or equivalent experiences within your major.
