Essential Learning and General Education Requirements

MSC Catalog picture/link

As of Fall 2015, General Education transitioned to Essential Learning. The Essential Learning and General Education (Gen. Ed.) requirements are a set of University-wide basic courses that form the foundation of all undergraduate degree programs.

Things to note:

  • The Essential Learning and 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 a fewer number of Essential Learning or Gen. Ed. Requirements.
  • Some majors require specific Essential Learning or Gen. Ed. courses, so students should consult with an advisor before selecting which Essential Learning or Gen. Ed. courses to take.
