General Ed Banner

General Education at G.C.U.

The curriculum is organized so that the pre-collegiate preparation and particular aptitudes, talents, and interests of the individual are considered when the program of general education is planned. Nevertheless, Georgian Court insists that a certain breadth of subject matter is essential for the complete development of the truly liberally educated person.

Reflecting the mission of GCU, the General Education Program and Graduation Requirements offer a liberal arts foundation that provides the opportunity to explore a spectrum of disciplines. This experience helps students integrate and apply knowledge from multiple perspectives, deepen their understanding of themselves and others in light of the Mercy core values, and develop critical thinking skills requisite for success in life.


Students may also take NYU Language Proficiency exams (12-point exam or 16-point exam). GCU will award up to 16 credits total.
