Johnson State College

Johnson, VT

Johnson State College says its, "General Education Curriclum (GEC) for campus-based students is designed to build Foundational Skills in writing, mathematics and science; and provide a solid understanding of four “Integrative Perspectives,” or ways of looking at oneself, society, the broader world – even the universe – and one’s place within it. Courses and experiences attached to each perspective foster the development of knowledge, skills and the ability to reflect on one’s learning. In these ways, the Integrative Perspectives become active tools for personal development and engagement with community and life as a whole. The four perspectives are: Aesthetic, Global, Social & Historical, and Civic." [Source]
