Catalog of Entry

The Undergraduate Bulletin in effect when a student first enrolls at the university or any one subsequent catalog will be the guide to General Education Requirements.

Goals

The general education program at YSU is designed to help students achieve the following seven goals:

  •  Students will participate in a culture of community
  • Students will learn skills that will promote academic and professional growth
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to write and speak effectively, reason quantitatively, and think critically so they are prepared to perform appropriately in their professions upon graduation. These skills will be applied in the major and culminate in the successful completion of a senior capstone project.
  •  Students will demonstrate understanding of the basic facts, principles, theories, and methods of science. Students will demonstrate the interdependence of science and technology and the influence of science and technology on society.
  •  Students will interpret significant writings and works of art, with a focus on aesthetics, historical responses, and the nature of the human condition.
  •  Students will demonstrate understanding of the development, diversity, and complexity of human behavior, institutions, and culture.
  •  Students will demonstrate understanding in any of the following critical areas of contemporary life:  Domestic Diversity, International Perspectives, Sustainability, and Well-being.

Baccalaureate Degree General Education Requirements

A. First-Year Experience

Instead of a knowledge domain elective, students may elect to take a First-Year Experience Course.

B. Core Competencies

Writing

To learn the skills of effective writing, students will:

  • Take two courses:
    • ENGL 1550 Writing 1– the standard introductory writing course
    • ENGL 1551 Writing 2– a course in which students investigate a thematic topic (students with ACT scores at or above 28 will only need to take ENGL 1551 Writing 2)
  • Gather evidence from the library, Internet, or other appropriate sources
  • Write a research paper using a computer

Speaking

To become effective speakers, students will take CMST 1545 Communication Foundations.

Critical Thinking

The critical-thinking learning outcome will be met through each student's major's curriculum.

Mathematics

Students must take at least one approved course that teaches mathematical and statistical skills. A student may satisfy this requirement by passing an approved course, or by passing a higher-level mathematics course.

C. Knowledge Domains: Arts and Humanities, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Social and Personal Awareness

To become more well-rounded members of the community, students are required to take a total of nine courses from the four knowledge domains. The coursework gives students exposure to fields of study outside their majors. Students are required to take:

COURSETITLES.H.
Select two courses from each of the four domains:
Arts and Humanities
Natural Science (at least one of the courses must include a laboratory component)
Social Science
Social and Personal Awareness
Select one general elective from any of the four domains or take a First-Year Experience course

D. Capstone

All majors require a capstone course. In the capstone course students are required to demonstrate knowledge in their major as well as their ability to communicate in writing, their oral communication skills, and their ability to reason critically.
