Academic Information
General Education
The general education courses taken by all students
are designed to be the foundation for a liberal arts
education. A liberal arts education aims to expose
students to a wide variety of values, ideas and
assumptions that will help them better appreciate
the responsibilities and benefits of a free society.
It is also designed to give them a common core of
knowledge which will aid in understanding their
society and culture.
The college has developed a general education
program designed to form the minimum core of each
student’s liberal arts education. Each candidate for a
bachelor’s degree must complete a minimum of 68-71
