General Education Program

What is the General Education Program?

The General Education Program forms the foundation of a Wayne State College liberal arts education. Drawing from disciplines across campus, the General Education Program develops students’ intellectual inquiry, personal and professional development and responsible citizenship. The required courses that make up the General Education Program will prepare students for the advanced coursework that is a part of their major.
