The General Education Conference: Making General Education Visible

Coming this fall to an EMU near you, the Second Annual General Education Conference!

Last year's program notes:

General Education Program

Education for participation in the global community.

The General Education Program is the basis for life long learning and participation in a global world. It provides a rich experience, across a wide range of academic activities, and it promotes intellectual curiosity and a love of learning. Like a major, it is a program that students must complete in order to earn a bachelors degree.

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 participation in a global world. 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.
