Hey guys! Welcome back. With a new semester looming over our heads, I thought it would be a good time to spend the next couple of days on some college-related topics. Today I wanted to talk about gen ed requirements because that is always a popular question. It can sometimes be a bit of an overwhelming concept. Every school is different and you general requirements may vary from school to school. But here are some basics you may want to know if you didn’t already.
The first thing you should know is that general education requirements are typically the first part of your degree. Most schools require you to have these classes completed before you move into your major classes. Your core classes may depend on the knowledge that previously gained, so it is important to take them seriously.
These general education courses are important because they help you become more well-rounded. They help you get out of your comfort zone and if you aren’t sure about a major they can point you in a direction you may want to go. These classes help you meet new people, find out what you strengths and weaknesses are, and show you that college has many different avenues you can go down.
It’s worth the effort and time because these courses will give you a much needed foundation that will carry you through the rest of your college years, and even into the work force. Don’t discredit that math or history class you dread because you may learn important skills like time management or group work that you need in the real world. I remember dreading public speaking, but because I worked hard and wanted to succeed I got a really good grade and learned so much.
