General Education Program

General Education Program

General Education provides the foundation of a university education, equipping students with the knowledge and skills to facilitate intellectual and personal growth, pursue advanced studies, and address challenges ranging from the local to the global. Every General Education course is required to meet specific student learning outcomes, available here.

The General Education Program was revised in Fall 2020.  Information about the 2020 changes are located in our GEP FAQ.  A thorough description of the General Education Program and information about placement in Written Communication and Quantitative Literacy can be found in the most recent UWSP catalog.
