MSC Catalog picture/linkGeneral Education Requirements

The General Education requirements (Gen. Ed. for shorthand) are a set of University-wide basic courses that form the foundation of all undergraduate
degree programs.

Things to note:

  • The Gen. Ed. listings can be found under the Undergraduate Requirements section of the CMU Catalog.
  • Students who are pursuing an Associates of Applied Sciences have fewer number of Gen. Ed. Requirements.
  • Some majors require specific General Education courses, so students should consult with an advisor before selecting which Gen. Ed. courses to take.
