45 Hours of General Studies Courses
All UNK students must satisfactorily complete the courses listed within the General Studies areas. Each student seeking a bachelor's degree at UNK must complete 45 hours of General Studies courses, distributed into seven categories. It should be noted that certain majors require that specific General Studies courses be taken. Students should make choices with the guidance of the academic advisor so that their interests and major requirements are met. Colleges and individual programs within a College can, with the approval of the appropriate College committee, require specific General Studies courses which will be listed under the requirements for the degree programs.
To ensure that the General Studies Program provides students with a wide variety of points of view and allows them to concentrate in their junior and senior years on their major subject, students are encouraged to complete the General Studies Program in their freshman and sophomore years.
