Purpose   of General Education


Prepare Icon

Prepare: As you prepare to write your answer to the discussion   question, think about the general education courses that you have taken as a   university student. To help you address the prompts, carefully read the   articles and websites that address the philosophy behind general education   courses.


Reflect Icon

Reflect: After reviewing websites and reading the journal articles,   and in light of what you discovered in preparing to write your answer to the   discussion question, consider, analyze, and explain why general education courses   should be a significant part of every student’s education.


Write Icon

Write: For this discussion, address the following prompts: 

  • Provide at least three reasons why every student        should be required to take general education courses. Explain your        rationale.
  • Describe what you have learned from at least two        specific courses (e.g., philosophy, history, or psychology) that        illustrated usefulness in your daily life. For instance, what did you        learn in history classes beyond just names, dates, and places? In literature        courses, what did you learn about life, the university, and everything        beyond the literary work itself?
  • Support your claims with examples from required        material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any        references. Be sure to include information from the websites and        articles.
  • Your initial post should be at least 250 words in        length.
