Los Angeles, CA

University of California - Los Angeles says, "General education (GE) is more than a checklist of required courses. It is a program of study that reveals to students the ways that research scholars in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences create and evaluate new knowledge, introduces students to the important ideas and themes of human cultures, fosters appreciation for the many perspectives and the diverse voices that may be heard in a democratic society, and develops the intellectual skills that give students the dexterity they need to function in a rapidly changing world."
