General Education

General education is an integral component of a student's total educational experience. A sound general education program contributes to the development of learned and inquisitive individuals by providing them with a breadth of knowledge and by stimulating academic curiosity. The totality of general education courses affords students opportunities to enhance their skills in effective communication, quantitative literacy, and technology and to broaden their perspectives on cultural, historic, and global issues. A solid foundation in general education prepares students for more specialized study and provides them with the skills to adapt and contribute to an ever-changing workforce.
