General Education

Approved General Education Courses

General education courses teach basic skills and broaden students’ knowledge of a wide range of subjects. Education is much more than the acquisition of facts; it is gaining the strategies and skills to use information in meaningful ways in order to enrich one’s life. Students become truly educated through making connections across disciplines.
