Core Curriculum and General Education

Transformational Learning

Transformational Education is the first pillar of excellence; it is the key to UMass Lowell’s vision for our students. Our aim is to prepare students for work, world, and life with a robust educational experience both in their majors and as university students. The Core Curriculum, introduced for students entering the university in fall 2015 and beyond, builds on our General Education program to empower students with relevant knowledge, intellectual skills, and the ability to bring a broad perspective to the complex problems and challenges of the 21st century.
