The General Education Options category exists so that colleges, departments and programs can tailor the allocation of General Education credits to best meet their students' educational goals and needs. Students should consult their advisement sheet, academic adviser or department chair to determine the exact requirements for the General Education Options credits for their program.
General Education Options account for 9-12 credits of the General Education program. Departments/programs requiring an Intermediate Composition course will have 9 credits of General Education Options, while those not requiring Intermediate Composition will have 12 credits.
All students are required to complete 3 credits (one course) from the Ethics and Multicultural Emphasis List. The remaining General Education Options credits are allocated based on the student's major field of study. (See individual program advisement sheets.)
