LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- University of Kansas administrators say the school is preparing to implement a new curriculum in the fall.

All freshmen will be required to take the new Core Curriculum, and some upperclassmen could opt into the new requirements.

The new curriculum is the first to apply to all undergraduates, regardless of their school. The university says it will provide more flexibility and focus on skills the students will develop.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/UFSdFa ) the current Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of General Studies degrees include requirements that can be met by only one or a handful of courses. Most undergraduates pursue those degrees.

The Core Curriculum includes 12 skill-based requirements, which students will have a number of ways to fill.
