General Studies

The purpose of the Division of General Studies is to equip students with an essential foundation in general knowledge that all college graduates may be expected to know. This equipping not only provides the required knowledge base, but also prepares students for further study, gives them the ability to relate to others on a variety of topics, and provides insight into how people think and feel. Such awareness increases students’ ability to communicate across cultural boundaries and effectively operate in and minister to contemporary society.
