Academic Overview

The College of Arts and Sciences and the Common Academic Program

The College of Arts and Sciences plays an integral role in the University's Common Academic Program (CAP), an innovative curriculum that is the foundation of a University of Dayton education. It is a learning experience that is shared in common among all undergraduate students, regardless of their major. The CAP’s distinctive structure is built on the notion that, while students will have unique experiences at UD, all academic programs and learning encounters are informed by the seven institutional learning goals articulated in the Habits of Inquiry and Reflection (HIR).
