Students must have at least 40 hours of general education (GE) courses in order to graduate. There are six attributes of GE courses (listed below). Depending on the major, certain classes may be required in each attribute (consult the first page of your checksheet for this info!) while other majors allow students to freely pick GE courses.
See the online Undergraduate Catalog (select courses)for a complete listing of courses that fall under each attribute.
Students who need assistance selecting GE courses can easily find all of the classes available for each attribute by using Banner Self Service.
The goal of the Liberal Arts Foundations curriculum is to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and abilities essential to their living worthwhile lives. The curriculum is based on the faculty's belief that the best way to prepare students for living worthwhile lives is to provide them with a solid foundation in the core disciplines in the liberal arts (the humanities, arts, natural sciences, and social sciences), in conjunction with a multidisciplinary education in the specific areas of health promotion and physical activity and mastery of writing and mathematics competencies.
