Colleges with No Core Requirements

<p>What colleges have no or few core requirements for graduation? Other than Brown. Thanks.</p>

<p>I am so glad you asked - I want to know this as well. :)</p>

<p>I think that the University of Rochester is one as well.</p>

<p>brown i think</p>

<p>Amherst doesn't have distribution requirements. Williams does, but seems to leave them so open-ended that it would be easy to fulfill them while just doing your own thing.</p>

<p>I hate Art with a passion (Nasty art teacher in HS) even though im very talented in it, so id be looking for a college without core requirments as well</p>

<p>i dont think hopkins has a core</p>

<p>Grinnell, Antioch, ASU, maybe macalester--not sure.</p>

<p>If what you're avoiding is just a core, then that is not difficult at all. Most colleges have distribution requirements, such that you have to take, say, a few courses in science, humanities, foreign language, etc. However, the college does not dictate exactly what courses you have to take, and it is often easy to find courses that play up your interests, even though they count for a subject you generally don't like.</p>

<p>Obviously, colleges that have distribution requirements vary greatly in how close they are to a core, versus how loose they are...but I definitely wouldn't rule out a school just because it has some requirements, because almost all do, but many can be circumvented.</p>

<p>Yeah Brown and JHU don't have core requirements. But also remember if you have a ton of AP credits then you can usually knock out most of the distribution requirements at many public universities.</p>

<p>I don't think Vassar has requirements...</p>

<p>University of Rochester does have distribution requirements.</p>

<p>At Rochester, students complete a 3-course 'cluster' in the two divisions that are outside your major, for a total of 6 courses.</p>

<p>Engineering students complete only 1 cluster.</p>

<p>Bennington does not have a core and really no distribution requirements, though students are encouraged to be somewhat broad.</p>

obviously, if you had even bothered to read the contents of the original post, you wouldn't have posted this</p>

<p>Pomona doesn't have any specific required classes, just a freshman seminar</p>

<p>I'd like to know of some schools that not only don't have a core (which is many) but have light distribution requirements--i.e. Berkeley (i think?)</p>

<p>College of the Atlantic doesn't have any core requirements, just a few guidelines, although it is an extremely small school and will not fit most people.</p>
