State University of New York - Oswego

Oswego, NY

SUNY-Oswego says its general education program "is governed by two guiding principles: liberal education plays a foundational role in preparing Oswego graduates to engage and contribute to the world; students should have a degree of choice regarding the shape of their general education program. The SUNY Oswego general education program, what we call GE 21, will help students to hone the skills and habits of thought necessary to do well in university and critical to a life well lived after being graduated."
