The General Education curriculum helps students attain the fundamental skills that all college-educated adults must have, whatever their specific areas of concentration (i.e., the major and minor). The experiences of General Education encourage students to develop a critical and inquiring attitude, an appreciation of interdisciplinary subject areas, acceptance of persons of different backgrounds or values, and a deepened sense of self.
The General Catalog has information for students on how to satisfy curriculum course requirements such as foundations, diversity, humanities, cultures, and natural sciences
Determine if your course is a good fit for the general education curriculum and learn what is needed to submit a proposal for new or existing courses.
