Established in 2013, the General Education Core provides a strong foundation for a rich and intellectually challenging undergraduate experience. Over 200 courses have been rigorously reviewed and approved to the IUPUI General Education Core by faculty members from all academic units, providing IUPUI students with a diverse array of options for fulfilling their general education requirements. Course work is divided into the broad domains of Foundational Intellectual Skills (Core Communication, Analytical Reasoning, and Cultural Understanding) and course work that promotes Intellectual Breadth and Adaptiveness (Life and Physical Sciences; and Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences). The general education coursework appropriate for each major has been built into the first few semesters of iGPS Degree Maps.
General Education is governed by the Undergraduate Affairs Committee.
