California State University - Stanislaus

Turlock, CA

CSU-Stanislaus says, "General education is fundamental to a university education. General education develops foundational communicative, quantitative, and critical thinking skills. It promotes an understanding of history and culture, fosters appreciation for the arts and humanities, and encourages a broad knowledge of social issues and scientific inquiry. Attaining a general education means that students understand that all learning is connected and enriches all aspects of life: personal, civic, and professional." [Source]
