Saginaw Valley State University says, "General education refers to that part of a student's education that contributes to the breadth of knowledge needed to be a more effective citizen of a complex and culturally diverse world. It supports the student with the skills and perspectives that will not always be gained from a specialized program of study and provides a basis for a common educational experience all students and graduates of the University can share. It is intended to help each student become more broadly knowledgeable, adaptable, and capable in their many life roles." [Source]
