Essential Learning and General Education Requirements
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.
