    About Gen Ed

    General education focuses on a broad array of skills, knowledge, and issues that the university’s faculty considers to be particularly important for all college graduates. The program is intended to help students prepare for success and fulfillment in a continually changing world. General education complements the departmental major. The major provides depth of study in a particular area of specialization and prepares students for particular careers or for advanced study.
