Cornerstone Program of General Education
The mission of the Cornerstone Program is to lead students to examine critically the self, society, culture, and the natural world. The program honors Stonehill College’s commitment to free inquiry and social responsibility in the tradition of Catholic higher education. Through the development of the knowledge, competencies, and values that are central to the Cornerstone Program, every Stonehill student will be prepared for a life of learning and responsible citizenship.
The Cornerstone Program offers unique opportunities for creative teaching: writing courses; writing- intensive first-year seminars; collaboratively taught learning communities; and a variety of core courses that challenge and engage our students across the curriculum.
