University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh
University of Pittsburgh says "The goal of the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences is to provide liberal arts and pre-professional education for undergraduate students that is grounded in scholarly excellence and offers students the knowledge, understanding, analytical tools, and communication skills they need to become perceptive, reflective, and intellectually self-conscious citizens in a diverse and rapidly changing world. The general education requirements are at the core of that goal." [Source]
