Student reading good book

The General Education Guidelines serve as the resource document for development and assessment of general education courses at SJSU. The Guidelines summarize the philosophy of the program and the overall GE Objectives, as well as learning outcomes for each of the GE areas. In addition, the Guidelines provide information on certification of new courses, continuing certification of existing courses, assessment, and oversight of the GE program.

The GE Guidelines were revised in Spring 2004, with an implementation date of Fall 2005. The 2005 GE Guidelines supercede the 1998 GE Guidelines. All new and continuing courses should comply with the 2005 GE Guidelines.
