General Studies

The mission of the General Studies Program is to encourage the habits of mind of an educated person that promote life-long learning. Students will acquire the essential knowledge and develop the critical skills that are of fundamental significance in a free society.

The General Studies Program is structured around the following three goals:

  • Develop intellectual and practical skills
  • Explore essential knowledge, perspectives, and methods in Arts and Humanities, History, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Natural and Physical Sciences
  • Understand the global interconnectedness of diverse individuals, communities and societies

Each goal is supported by a set of student learning outcomes (SLOs) that are addressed by the courses in one or more of eight different categories.

NOTE: General Studies Requirements may change based on catalog year. Please contact your EAS Academic Advisor if you are unsure which catalog year your degree falls under. 

Please refer to the Current Catalog for more information on General Studies Requirements.
