General Education at SOU
In Fall 2006, Southern Oregon University adopted the University Studies general education program. University Studies reflects the SOU Faculty’s academic road map for a sound liberal arts education. This is a pathway to the foundational skills and the intellectual development needed to prepare you for an enlightened, productive life in a dynamic, complex world. We hope you enjoy the journey.
University Studies also provides a foundation to prepare you for advanced work in your academic majors and to earn a Bachelor’s degree. It is your responsibility to know and complete all these graduation requirements. The following can be used as a guide to the successful completion of your degree at SOU.
