General Education Program

The general education curriculum is designed with the philosophy of "college, career, community.” The focus on these areas prepares students to become global citizens and leaders in their fields.



The general education curriculum is designed to provide a foundation for knowledge common to educated people and to develop the capacity for an individual to expand that knowledge over his or her lifetime.
