Revision of General Education at Missouri State University

Missouri State University Faculty Senate has approved a revised General Education Program that incorporates a new structure of course requirements that will be used to have each student accomplish 15 General Education learning goals, which reflects the character of the University and will prepare our students as 21st Century citizens. The revised program has expanded the Public Affairs Experience type courses (adding courses in Cultural Competence and Public Issues) and more intentionally infused the public affairs mission across the general education curriculum. At the same time, the revision has maintained a similar number of required general education credits. The revised general education is scheduled for full implementation beginning Fall 2014.
