The general education curriculum is the liberal arts portion of your degree. This is a primary component of what distinguishes a baccalaureate degree from a career training or vocational program. General education courses encourage broad educational experiences and provide the opportunity for students to explore their interests. Equaling about one-third of the total credits required for the baccalaureate degree, it provides for the development of transferable skills which apply to all career choices.
The general education curriculum at SCSU is called the Liberal Education Program (LEP). The LEP also meets the requirements of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC).
