This section outlines the UC Davis General Education requirements. The General Education (GE) requirements, also called "GE3" because they represent the third iteration of UC Davis GE, went into effect in Fall Quarter 2011. There are two main areas in the new GE requirements, "Topical Breadth" and "Core Literacies." More information on GE requirements, see General Education website.

For the list and totals for GE Requirements, see Student Requirements on the General Education website.
