Meeting the four program outcomes of the General Education Program  requires the following: demonstrate the critical thinking, quantitative, and communication skills necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing global society; demonstrate a broad knowledge of the physical, social, and cultural worlds as well as the methods by which this knowledge is produced; recognize that responsible global citizenship involves personal accountability, social equity, and environmental sustainability; and be able to apply this knowledge and skills, working in interdisciplinary ways to solve problems. The Associate Degree requires the completion of the General Education Program , except for the Communication in the Major and the Capstone Experience in the Major.
