Student Benefits

Put simply, the core curriculum will better prepare all Purdue graduates for future employment success. Employers are looking for potential employees who possess a broader set of skills beyond their academic discipline. The core curriculum will better ensure this need is met.

Additionally, the core curriculum will give students more flexibility in changing academic paths.  Once a student fulfills a foundational learning outcome, the student receives credit for that outcome. If he or she CODOs to another program or college, all previously completed foundational outcomes will still be considered fulfilled.
