“As a student, I chose GCU because of its ability to help me succeed academically and personally. The WILD program was the foundation of my accomplishments as a student. As a staff member, I chose GCU because I wanted to give back to my alma mater and inspire students to embrace their true potential.”
Reflecting the mission of Georgian Court University, the General Education Program offers a liberal arts foundation that provides the opportunity to explore a spectrum of disciplines. It offers humanistic, societal, and scientific frames of reference as it introduces modes of inquiry and methods of interpretation. Students are required to reflect on artistic, philosophical, and theological questions. Primary attention is given to understanding various ways of knowing and an appreciation of culture and diverse perspectives. This experience helps students integrate and apply knowledge from multiple perspectives, deepen their understanding of themselves and others in light of the Mercy core values, and develop critical thinking skills requisite for success in life.
