Pathways General Education for Students and Advisors

Pathways General Education is the shared academic experience of every undergraduate student at the university. The curriculum requires a total of 45 credits over seven core concepts and two integrative concepts. Many AP, IB, dual enrollment, and transfer courses may count for credit.

Students may also choose to complete a portion of their requirements by completing a Pathways Minor on a topic that complements their interests, major, or career goals.
