General Education Information for Prospective Students
Meredith requires 124 credit hours of approved academic coursework for graduation. Our academic requirements are comprised of three components, general education requirements, self-chosen program requirements (major, minor, licensure, and so on), and non-required elective courses.
Through our General Education requirements, we carry on our tradition of offering a significant program in the liberal arts and sciences. Our course choices also emphasize intercultural and global understanding, ethical reasoning, and up to date high-level skills in writing, oral communication, and uses of information technology for communication, research, and productivity. Finally, we offer multiple opportunities for practical experiential learning: Internships, undergraduate research, and service learning among many others.
General Education Goals:
Through courses in the liberal arts and sciences and in their majors, students work toward the following goals:
- An understanding of self, others, and the world,
- The ability to analyze, evaluate, and discover solutions,
- Effective communication,
- A recognition of ethical and responsible behavior in society, the global community, and the natural world, and
- An understanding of the complex nature of knowledge.
