Any Student or Advisor seeking information about General Education should refer to the catalog

The General Education Program is a set of requirements that all students must meet in addition to major, minor, and university graduation requirements. It is not a major in and of itself. 
 

PLEASE NOTE: We will be out of the office at a conference on Thursday 2/11. We will resume normal office hours on Tuesday 2/16. For faster service, email generaleducation@emich.edu or Rachel Dick at rdick2@emich.edu.
 

Our "Guiding Principle"

The General Education Program at Eastern Michigan University is the core of an undergraduate education. It is general in that it provides students with a comprehensive educational experience and prepares them for study within their major. General Education teaches students to think critically and communicate effectively; it provides an introduction to the methodologies and practices of the academic disciplines; and it promotes intellectual curiosity and a love of learning.
