The General Education Program reflects the faculty’s aspirations for all UVM undergraduates. General Education is the foundation of a transformative educational experience that prepares students to become accountable leaders who bring to their work dedication to the global community, a grasp of complexity, effective problem-solving and communication skills, and an enduring commitment to learning and ethical conduct. General Education courses transcend disciplinary boundaries; they help students develop integrated competencies that are essential to lifelong learning and responsible citizenship.
UVM currently has four General Education requirements: Diversity, Foundational Writing and Information Literacy, Quantitative Reasoning, and Sustainability. To learn more about each of these requirements, use the menu button on the upper left to navigate this website.
