Every university has a General Education curriculum designed to complement the specialized courses in your academic major. At Saint Francis University our general education curriculum helps us remain true to our liberal arts roots and our Franciscan heritage by encouraging you to examine ethical issues, demonstrate global awareness, become actively involved in community service and prepare yourself for lifelong learning.
Through our General Education program, Ethical Citizenship for the 21st Century, you’ll build for yourself a solid academic base, establish critical thinking skills, a love for learning, and a strong moral foundation—essential tools for your success in today’s world. The program extends beyond the classroom to include lectures, presentations, performances, service projects and other educational activities.
