Avila is a Catholic university founded and inspired by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Your classes will be led by an esteemed faculty, 77% of whom have their doctoral or highest degree in their field. As an Avila undergraduate student, your education will have both breadth and depth. You will complete a Core curriculum and a major curriculum with each course of study designed so that clearly identified objectives are built upon and reinforced. 

The Core curriculum is divided into three groups of requirements and is designed to be completed over the period of time needed to meet the requirements for the baccalaureate degree.

  • The Foundations requirements provide the basic skills essential for effective participation in other classes as well as the professional world.
  • The Pillars and Levels requirements address the breadth of knowledge expected of a liberal arts education and challenge students to integrate prior knowledge and create new ideas through higher levels of coursework.
  • The Core Component Designations requirements incorporate assignments and experiences focused on developing and deepening student understandings to prepare students for responsible lifelong contributions to the global community.
