General Education

The baccalaureate degree at MSU is a total of 120 semester hours with 36 hours committed to general education. This consists of a 15-hour core, 18 hours of humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and natural sciences, a 3-hour first-year seminar, and 3 hours of senior capstone. The General Education Program was designed to develop and assess progress in students’ writing, presentation, and critical thinking skills using pre- and post-tests and common rubrics. Implementation of value-added, longitudinal assessment for MSU students now begins in the first-year seminar and culminates in the capstone course.
