General education requirement
All universities have a general education curriculum included as part of the baccalaureate degree requirements. The general education curriculum differs at each institution and is typically titled differently. The goal of general education curricula is to assure that all graduates have a common set of coursework designed around the university's educational goals.
The university's general education curriculum is also designed to assure that its graduates have a breadth of coursework from across the university's curricula; the curriculum in the major provides a depth of coursework in a particular academic area. At PSU the University Studies Program and the Urban Honors Program are the two options for general education.
