University of North Alabama

Florence, AL

The University of North Alabama says, "General Education Program courses present the essential characteristics and basic processes of inquiry and analysis in the discipline, encourage the development of critical thinking and communication skills, and require students to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate knowledge. This broad intellectual experience, common to all students earning baccalaureate degrees from the University, provides a foundation for success in the major programs and assures that graduates possess a breadth of knowledge and competencies necessary for success in their careers; for participation in the civic life of their community, state, and nation; and for an ability to continue the process of learning throughout their lifetimes."
