What is General Education?

General education enables students to see that education integrates and unifies knowledge, and allows them to become aware of ambiguity and appreciative of cultural diversity while encouraging comprehensive literacy, including an understanding of symbol systems that educated people in contemporary society must possess.

What are Focus Areas?

General Education focus areas are six areas of knowledge and skills students will develop through their study of general education courses. Students will strenghten their skills and knowledge in thoughtful and precise writing, critical reading, quantitative thinking, scientific inquiry, digital literacy, civic discourse and the development of the processes of analysis and synthesis which underlie reasoning.
