General Education at SCSU

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).

  1. Current students who began their studies at SCSU in fall 2010 or after follow the LEP exclusively.

  2. Students who began their studies at SCSU prior to the 2009 summer session may want to consider the option of either the LEP or a previous version of General Education at SCSU. Check with an advisor in the Advising Center if you have any questions about which program you should and/or could follow.

  3. All students will still have to fulfill all University requirements, such as a lab, and three diversity classes including one racial issues class (all of the racial issues classes can be found in Goal 7 of the LEP)..
