Values Across the Curriculum Transition Guide

A Values Across the Curriculum component will be a part of the Loyola University Core Curriculum, to be implemented in the 2005-06 academic year.

This values guide has been developed to help students understand the Values Across the Curriculum requirements and to guide them through a review of the requirements and how their previous coursework has been applied to the University Core. If you have not read about the University Core, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the curriculum and its learning outcomes.

Once you have read the information pages, follow the simple steps below to understand how your previous courses were applied toward the completion of the Values requirements:

1. Figure out how many Values Areas you must fulfill

All students do not necessarily have to complete all four Core Values areas. The committee has developed a sliding scale to ease the transition into the Core for students returning in the Fall 2005 semester. [PLEASE NOTE: AS OF SPRING 2008, THE SLIDING SCALE WILL NOT BE USED FOR INCOMING TRANSFER STUDENTS. YOUR LOYOLA ADVISOR CAN EXPLAIN THE NEW POLICY FOR VALUES COURSES AND TRANSFER STUDENTS.]

Sliding Scale: The following table will allow you to determine the number of values courses you need to complete based on the number of credit hours you anticipate you will have at the start of the Fall 2005 semester.

Please Note: Core Values Area Requirements can be completed through a combination of courses both taken prior to the start of the Fall 2005 semester (courses on this guide), and courses taken during the 2005-2006 school year and beyond under the Core (courses still to be determined).

TD align=middle>0-29 hours TD align=middle>30-59 hours TD align=middle>60-89 hours TD align=middle>90-109 hours TD align=middle>110+ hours
Number of credit hours completed by start of Fall '05 semester Number of Core Values areas required to complete
4 Core Values Areas
3 Core Values Areas
2 Core Values Areas
1 Core Values Area
0 Core Values Areas

2. Figure out which courses you already have taken that can satisfy the Values Areas requirements

Now that you know how many Core Values Areas you must complete, figure out what courses you have taken or will take before the start of the Fall 2005 semester that can be applied to the Core Values Area requirement.

The guide below details which courses can be applied to the requirements.

Special Notes:

  • One course cannot satisfy more than one Core Values Area
  • Only one course per Core Values Area can count
  • Some courses listed only count if you took a certain section

3. Run your Academic Advisement Report to find out what progress you have made in the University Core

Use the Academic Advisement Report to see which Knowledge Areas and Values Areas you have completed and which Knowledge Areas and Values Areas you still need to complete.

The Advisement Report, available through LOCUS, can be used as a guideline to identify needed courses quickly and easily, and make the most of learning opportunities at Loyola.
