General Education Courses

Goals of General Education courses

General Education (GenEd) courses allow students to:

  • Gain awareness of the diversity, complexity, and richness of culture and the society in which they live and work in
  • Contribute thoughtfully, creatively, and positively to their communities
  • Strengthen Essential Employability Skills such as critical analysis, problem-solving, and communication

GenEd courses explore five themes:

  • Arts in society
  • Civic life
  • Social and cultural understanding
  • Personal understanding
  • Science and technology

General Education courses expose students to disciplines outside their main field of study and are required in all college programs. Every SLC program includes one online general education course, so students can explore online learning in a supportive environment and develop their digital fluency skills.
