General Education Philosophy 

General Education courses are required of all degree seeking students.  

General Education broadens students’ understanding of the world and prepares them for civic, social, and employment responsibilities. General education advances students’ abilities to function in diverse and dynamic environments by enhancing communication, stimulating critical thinking, exploring modes of inquiry, developing creative work, fostering constructive attitudes
regarding learning, and promoting academic literacy.
