The GS Core Requirements

The GS Core requirements provide the foundation for a traditional liberal arts education, assuring that students develop critical skills in writing and quantitative reasoning while exposing them to a range of knowledge and disciplines. Flexibility within the GS Core allows students to choose from several different departments to fulfill specified core requirements in science, literature, humanities, foreign language, and social sciences, thereby encouraging students to explore new areas of inquiry and develop their intellectual interests.
