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.
The General Education (GE) requirement:
- 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.
- Involves students in the learning process by its expectation of considerable writing and class participation.
- Encourages students to consider the relationships between disciplines. See the Academic Senate for full descriptions of GE Requirements.
