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.

Any student or advisor seeking information about general education should refer to the catalog.

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.

What's New?!

The Sophia Project:

The Sophia Project is a brand new program designed for students who are looking to dive beneath the surface of the university. Surrounded by other inquisitive students, and led by TSP mentors, students will explore concepts that will help them navigate through their college careers and beyond.
