The General Education Program supports the university mission and guiding principles by promoting academic excellence, preparing students for their majors, and cultivating habits of lifelong learning. General education coursework encompasses the subject areas of communication, mathematics, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Students develop a wide range of content knowledge and disciplinary perspectives, along with important academic competencies.
The general education curriculum is developed and approved by program faculty, through their elected representatives on the General Education Council of the Faculty Senate. Administration and assessment of the program is coordinated by the Director of General Education, working within Undergraduate Studies.
