Our new general education program is a goal-focused system to develop foundations, knowledge and applications through a variety of learning experiences. Toward this end, we have developed a new, assessable program for general education that captures the true value of courses within the general education learning experience, with the following purpose and goals for student learning outcomes.
General Education Purpose
A general education is the result of the entire university experience. It should assure broad exposure to areas of study beyond the major to foster a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the world, its possibilities, and the individual’s part in it. The general education program, based on acquiring skills, knowledge, and cultural awareness, will help develop each student’s ability to think critically and communicate clearly.
