General Education (GE)

General Education provides the foundation for the university education. It is designed to give students a breadth of knowledge and understanding across the major disciplines of science, social science, arts and humanities. It is also designed to help students develop lifelong skills such as critical thinking and writing. Each area of GE has its own set of learning goals.

By combining the General Education Curriculum, Major Requirements, and Electives, students graduate from CSUF with a Liberal Education.

"Liberal Education is an approach to learning that empowers individuals and prepares them to deal with complexity, diversity, and change. It provides students with broad knowledge of the wider world (e.g. science, culture, and society) as well as in-depth study in a specific area of interest. A liberal education helps students develop a sense of social responsibility, as well as strong and transferable intellectual and practical skills such as communication, analytical and problem-solving skills, and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings.
The broad goals of liberal education have been enduring even as the courses and requirements that comprise a liberal education have changed over the years. Today, a liberal education usually includes a general education curriculum that provides broad learning in multiple disciplines and ways of knowing, along with more in-depth study in a major."
