General Education at Queens College

At Queens, the new General Education curriculum will guide students to their major through:

  • A Comprehensive First-Year Experience
  • A Range of courses called Perspectives on the Liberal Arts and Sciences (taken within the first 60 credits)
  • A Culminating Capstone or Synthesis Course

They can expect to learn those academic abilities that cut across their entire college education, no matter what they are majoring in: using written and spoken language effectively, doing research, learning new languages, understanding abstract and quantitative reasoning, using technology, and making connections across the curriculum.

Please see the General Education Requirements page to get a view of the curriculum.

Supporting General Education at Queens College are:

  • GEAC: General Education Advisory Committee
  • CTL: Center for Teaching and Learning
  • UCC: Undergraduate Curriculum Committee
