Since 2018, Snow College has approached General Education from a fresh perspective. Foundations classes are designed to provide a jumping-off point for the general education program and are intended for students in their first year at Snow College. Like GE requirements themselves, Foundations classes connect three seemingly unrelated academic fields to study an issue that is richer because of interdisciplinary insights. Are you interested in cloning? You can discover more about it from the perspective of science, ethics, and art. Do you like imagining an impending zombie apocalypse? Combine the subjects of psychology, literature, and political science to create your very own survival guide and learn how your general education classes all connect.

How can approaching topics from an interdisciplinary perspective benefit your teaching or the different academic programs at your school? At Snow College, we don’t believe that general education courses are something to just get out of the way. We design GE classes that allow you to develop your ability to analyze, communicate, problem solve, and collaborate: real-world skills that will help you both on the job and in your everyday life.
