General Education Curriculum
The General Education Curriculum (G.E.C.) is a set of courses taken by all undergraduate students* in addition to their area of concentration or major. Arranged in three parts, or “components,” it is designed to guarantee that each student will receive instruction in three areas that the College considers indispensable to a solid liberal education: essential skills in communication and analysis, a broad knowledge of the Western cultural heritage, and an understanding of both scientific and values oriented approaches to problem solving.Complete information may be found in the Catalog.
*For transfer students, courses taken at other institutions are evaluated for application to the General Education Curriculum according to guidelines developed by the faculty and administered by the Office of Admissions.
