Introduction to General Education Video

General Education courses expose students to disciplines outside their main field of study. Through General Education, students become more conscious of the diversity, complexity, and richness of human experience, and as a result, become able to contribute thoughtfully, creatively, and positively to their communities.  General Education also strengthens Essential Employability Skills such as critical analysis, problem solving, and communication. These courses, required in all college programs, aim to increase students’ awareness of and engagement with the society and culture in which they live and work.

General Education courses explore five distinct themes:


  • Arts in Society
  • Civic Life
  • Social & Cultural Understanding
  • Personal Understanding
  • Science & Technology
