General Education / Prospective Students

Students in a Spanish class at Meredith

Through our general education curriculum, we carry on our tradition of offering a significant program in the liberal arts and sciences. Our course choices also emphasize intercultural and global understanding, ethical reasoning, and high-level skills in writing, oral communication, and uses of information technology for communication, research, and productivity. We offer multiple opportunities for practical experiential learning: internships, undergraduate research, and service learning among many others.

Through courses in the liberal arts and sciences and in their majors, students work toward the following goals:

  • An understanding of self, others, and the world
  • The ability to analyze, evaluate, and discover solutions
  • Effective communication
  • A recognition of ethical and responsible behavior in society, the global community, and the natural world
  • An understanding of the complex nature of knowledge
