The cornerstone of the Lynn academic experience

Lynn’s core curriculum—called the Dialogues—is nationally known and recognized. It restructures the traditional college curriculum to increase a student’s exposure to classic liberal arts material throughout their learning experience to instill a common set of knowledge across all majors.

The core curriculum is taught through 12 courses centered on three themes: Self and Society; Justice and Civic Life; and Belief and Reason. In addition to liberal arts knowledge, the Dialogues core curriculum also focuses on skills and knowledge areas essential to the success of the 21st century student—Quantitative Reasoning and Scientific Literacy.
