The General Education (GE) requirement promotes the intellectual growth of all undergraduates by ensuring that they acquire a breadth of knowledge that will enlarge their perspectives beyond the focus of a major and serve them well as participants in a knowledge-based society. It seeks to stimulate continued intellectual growth by providing students with knowledge not only of the content but also of the methodologies of different academic disciplines. It involves students in the learning process by its expectation of considerable writing and class participation. It encourages students to consider the relationships between disciplines. See the General Catalog for full descriptions of New and Former GE Requirements.
For all students who need to search New GE courses (begin with fall 2011 catalog rights) or Former GE courses (prior to fall 2011 catalog rights), use the Class Search Tool or one of the GE course search tools to the right.
