General Education

The General Education requirements shared by all bachelor’s degree programs at Plymouth are listed in the Catalog which the student is following. The following outlines the General Education program for students entering Fall 2005 and after.

An important reminder: Students enrolled at Plymouth State prior to Fall 2005 are required to follow the general education program under which they entered. Only students entering PSU Fall 2005 and after will follow the revised General Education program. Therefore, if a student who entered PSU prior to Fall 2005 chooses to follow the 2005-2006 or beyond catalog, they must still follow the general education program under which they entered Plymouth.
