The Future of “Gen Eds” at Penn State
Open Student Forum about Gen Eds: March 14th 7:00 p.m. in 165 Willard
Did you know that you are required to take 45 credits of Gen Eds? This is 3 semesters of coursework! Gen Eds are important to create well-rounded students but do you currently use them to make your college education more meaningful?
What if you could take a series of Gen Ed courses that fit within an overarching theme, like Evil? or Food? Or Disease? A broad topic like these could bring in the perspectives from scientists, sociologists, psychologists, statisticians, artists, writers, historians, philosophers… and tie together courses in a way that was purposeful.
Interested? Join faculty from the College of Science and the College of the Liberal Arts for a brainstorming session on how a Gen Ed thematic series of courses might be constructed. This event is hosted by The Eberly College of Science and The College of Liberal Arts Student Councils.
