In each undergraduate degree program, students are required to successfully complete a substantial general education component of at least 55 quarter hours, which is the equivalent of 36 semester hours. These courses are intended to provide a broad base of education upon which students may build. The curriculum also emphasizes clear communication and coherent presentation of thoughts and ideas through assignments involving writing, speaking, research, analysis and planning.
Specific general education course requirements are listed in each undergraduate program course of study. In addition to required courses, students should consult with their faculty adviser or student success adviser to select and register for the wide range of general education electives offered at SCAD and ensure that the courses meet the requirements of the program.
