The Cornerstones, or the Cornerstone curriculum, are the four classes all Minerva students take during their first year. The four classes are Complex Systems, Empirical Analyses, Formal Analyses, and Multimodal Communications. These classes teach habits of mind and foundational concepts (HCs), which are intended to be core skills for students to use successfully throughout their lives.
