School of General Education
The School focuses on the academic skills that enrich our personal and professional lives, from communicating effectively and thinking critically, to making ethical decisions and solving complex problems, to valuing the humanity, diversity, and wonders of nature which make our planet a wonderful place to call home. Wherever you are in your personal or professional journey, we can help you continue to expand your horizons, make new discoveries, and gain new insights in the fields of communication, culture and society (which reflect the fields of the humanities and social sciences), ethics, mathematics, and science.
The Purdue Global School of General Education courses support the academic, social, personal, and professional development of learners throughout their engagement with the University. We also provide a learning experience that is designed to be engaging, enjoyable, and applicable to students’ personal and professional lives, while preparing students to meet expectations in chosen fields of study.
