General Education
General education refers to courses and other experiences that lay the foundation for IUPUI students to evidence progress toward the IUPUI “Principles of Undergraduate Learning.” There is a focus on building skills in written and oral communication, information technology, inquiry, science, literature, quantitative reasoning, and both global and democratic perspectives.

Courses that build the general education foundation for elementary education majors are organized by the Principles of Undergraduate Learning to which they are most directly related. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor in the School of Education as soon as possible. Both the particular sequence and the course clusters or learning communities designated for Education majors have been planned to provide the strongest foundation and to build the most powerful connections between the content of the individual courses.
