GENERAL STUDIES

What is General Studies?

General Studies (GS) courses allow students to study beyond a specialized area, facilitating interdisciplinary understanding of academic fields and reflection upon fundamental human and social issues. The scope of courses is broad, and, in addition to Studies in Christian Humanism, Language, Health and Physical Education, offers GS distribution courses in three categories: The Legacy of the Past, Cultural Traditions, and The Contemporary World. Furthermore, the various Elective Courses allow students to acquire a solid foundation in Computer Studies, Environmental Issues, Geography, Mathematics and Statistics.
