78 G E N E D Illinois State University offers several study abroad programs that feature a wide variety of gen- eral education classes. Interested students should contact their academic advisor or the Office of International Studies and Programs. General Education Program Illinois State University The General Education Program at Illinois State University is an integrated set of courses that focus- es on the development of communication and prob- lem-solving skills and abilities, such as persuasion, listening, argumentation; logical and quantitative thinking, and understanding varying perspectives on issues. These skills and abilities provide an essential grounding for work in the student’s major. The premise of the General Education Program is that education should be a developmental process and not simply an assimilation of a prescribed set of facts. The program’s overall structure is designed to ensure that developmental objectives are achieved through the coherent and sequential interrelationship of courses. Inner Core courses provide basic knowledge and skills upon which Middle Core courses build, and those courses in turn prepare students for courses in the Outer Core. The complete General Education Program con- sists of 14 courses (42 semester hours), which is approximately one-third of the total credits required for graduation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
