Pikeville College says, "Common to all baccalaureate degrees...the general education requirements emphasize a strong foundation in the basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, problem-solving, and using technology. The general education curriculum also provides an introduction to the humanities, the sciences, the social sciences, and religion. The curriculum is designed to allow early completion of basic skills courses so these skills may be practiced in subsequent courses." [Source]
