GenEd30 model

  • Students complete up to 12 credits in the Foundations of Learning courses (UNIV and MATH/STAT courses). Students must complete the UNIV sequence and MATH/STAT requirement unless they have approved exceptions.
  • Students complete 18+ credits from the remaining four Areas of Inquiry by:
    • Selecting at least one course from each area for a total of 12 credits
    • Selecting the remaining two+ courses from any area for a total of six+ credits
    • Of the six courses taken across the four areas of inquiry, three must meet the SACSCOC requirements of one math/natural science, one social/behavioral science and one humanities/fine arts course
  • Students will be allowed to take a maximum of two courses per rubric, for example, SOCY, BUSN, MASC, with the exception of UNIV where students may take a maximum of three UNIV courses.
  • AP and transfer credits count towards these course restrictions.
  • Initially, units, as defined by the course rubric code, should be encouraged to contribute up to four courses across the five areas of inquiry. See the responsive controls webpage for further suggestions.
  • Only GenEd30 courses may function as pre/co-reqs for other GenEd30 courses.
  • All GenEd30 courses must be open to all students across the university with no restrictions on what majors may take these courses.
  • All GenEd30 courses must be offered at least one time per academic year during the fall or spring semesters but may also be offered in summer.
