General Education

Philosophy of General Education

The General Education Program encompasses coursework in both Communication and Calculation Skills and the University Requirements in liberal arts and sciences. As the foundation for all university degrees, it gives breadth and balance to a university degree and defines an educated person. General Education:

  1. provides students with the skills and proficiencies needed to succeed academically;
  2. exposes students to core knowledge and concepts of the Arts, Humanities, Mathematics, and Natural and Social Sciences;
  3. provides a diversity of viewpoints, ensuring that students gain familiarity with the art, literature, philosophy, and institutions of our own and other cultures;
  4. hones students' thinking and communication skills as they confront the complex issues of historical and contemporary times and attempt to understand trends and problems; and
  5. encourages students to cultivate new interests so as to engage in lifelong learning.

Education for the professions needs to be built upon this base. University graduates need to see the social and historical context of their chosen profession, so they will understand the reciprocal interaction of profession, society, and daily lives. Career opportunities now and in the future will require individuals who can actively respond to changing work environments, continue to learn and grow, and work cooperatively with people of diverse backgrounds. The broad exposure provided by the general education program facilitates informed career decisions in college and better equips individuals to respond to evolving personal aspirations and changing career opportunities.

Goals of General Education

The goals of general education are to enable students to develop:

  1. Breadth of knowledge of human cultures and the natural world
  2. Critical and creative thinking
  3. Effective communication skills
  4. Information literacy
  5. Quantitative reasoning
  6. Personal and civic responsibility
  7. Foundations for life-long learning

More information about the specific learning outcomes associated with each of these goals is available on the General Education webpage at www.uww.edu/gened.

Students are required to complete the General Education Requirements as part of the requirements for graduation. General Education courses used to satisfy major, minor, or curricular requirements are subject to any specific college restrictions on their use for these requirements as detailed in this Catalog.

Students with a strong high school preparation in a given subject area are urged to elect either an advanced course in that area (with departmental approval) or an introductory course in some other area when selecting General Education elective courses.

The General Education program that went into effect for the Fall 1994 term is required for all new freshmen entering UW-Whitewater for the first time in Fall 1994 or later. Transfer students for Fall 1996 or later will be held to these requirements if they are transferring fewer than 21 credits.

Students who transfer in 21 or more credits should consult Credit in Transfer, in the Admission Information section of this Catalog, to determine what General Education Requirements they must fulfill.
