» Planning Your First Year GE Courses

The General Education program combines student choice and breadth of learning. You’ll work with your advisor to develop a personalized academic plan that lets you integrate GE courses with your major. Your advisor will also help you decide on a minor or second major, plan time for experiential learning, and monitor your progress toward graduation. As you begin your studies, use the GE program to

  • Explore possible areas of interest for a major or minor
  • Take a course or courses that connect to your major in an interdisciplinary way
  • Pursue a subject that you enjoy and would like to learn more about
  • Establish a strong liberal arts foundation

The Academic Advising Center can assist you in planning your first year courses.
