General Education Course Approval

Expand a course's reach with a Gen Ed designation

All Honors College courses are eligible for general education course approval. Having a general education designation for a course is an incentive for enrollment, and expands the opportunities for interdisciplinary learning.

University of Maryland faculty members teach the general education courses, propose and develop new courses, revise old courses, serve on department and college programs, courses, and curricula committees, and, as members of the General Education Faculty Boards, take overall responsibility for the quality of General Education. The faculty boards evaluate proposals for new and existing courses for suitability in the general education categories.

Review the process and submit for general education course approval.
