The Visionary

Astronomy art, The Visionary Theme

To have vision is to be able not just to see, but to see anew. What drives the visionary impulse? Necessity, ego, faith? A desire for justice, the hunger for knowledge? How does the world come to recognize the visionary and share in that vision? This theme explores how the creativity and imagination of the visionary can transform the world.

About the Core

A liberal arts education at Loyola University Maryland requires that students take courses in the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and mathematics. These core courses, required of all students regardless of major, introduce students to these areas of study. Students in the Honors Program fulfill the University core requirements through an alternative core curriculum.

Academic Worksheets from the Academic Advising and Support Center as well as the Undergraduate Course Catalog are available if you would like more detailed information about how Messina courses fit into your core requirements.
