Laying the Foundation for Success
The foundation of an outstanding university is an innovative and thoughtful curriculum developed by faculty who are experts in their fields. The Office of Undergraduate Studies and General Education works with the faculty to develop and refine courses and academic programs that will ensure that our students succeed not only in the classroom, but also in their professional careers.

With disciplinary knowledge and critical skills, Titan graduates are well-positioned to emerge as effective and ethical leaders, and productive members in their local communities and the global society.
