### General Education

The General Education curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students in all of IU Kokomo’s baccalaureate programs. The goals are essentially threefold: to enable students to acquire knowledge common to educated people; to provide students with the ability to integrate knowledge from different disciplines and to discover the connections between diverse thoughts and ideas; and to empower students with the skill, creativity, and curiosity to be life-long learners.

The following general education curriculum (effective fall 2009) is required of each student who is granted a baccalaureate degree at the Indiana University Kokomo campus. Total credit hours will typically number 42 or 44. Each course must be completed with a passing grade, and students must obtain a minimum GPA of 2.0 (as per Faculty Senate policy) in the General Education curriculum. If a student takes more than the required number of courses within a section, the course(s) with the highest grade(s) will be used in the GPA calculation. With the exception of courses jointly listed under Sections I and II, no course can be used twice to satisfy multiple requirements. Some courses may have prerequisites. Additional departments and/or schools may have specific general education requirements rather than the general ones listed here. Students should consult with their advisor for more information.
