GERMAN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE II
A Course in the General Education Program
: The General Education Program at KSU offers a common academic experience for
all its students.
In a series of interrelated courses in the liberal arts and sciences, it provides the opportunity
for them to acquire the intellectual skills and knowledge characteristic of educated persons.
Thus, it lays
the foundation for success in their academic, professional, and personal lives.
Whereas the major program
contributes to a college education depth in a designated specialization, the General Education Program
provides breadth by introducing and connecting a variety of disciplines.
The General Education Program at KSU has five goals.
During the course of the
program, students should achieve the following:
develop productive habits of mind
develop effective communication skills
expand knowledge and understanding
expand creative capabilities
exhibit understanding of the impact of ethical and aesthetic values
