General Education Program
The General Education Program is comprised of a group of coordinated and interrelated courses which contain a body of knowledge designated as liberal arts. The university maintains that all students, regardless of academic major, must include in their individual curriculum specific general education courses which are designed to provide fundamental knowledge and skills and a broad cultural education.
The General Education Program is coordinated by the Department of General Studies. The Department makes certain that students are assigned academic advisors, and it coordinates the scheduling of courses for freshman, sophomore, and transfer students.
