Effective Fall 1999, the System General Education Requirements were established by the SD Board of Regents.
These require all students to successfully complete a total of 30 credit hours across the liberal arts curriculum. In addition, BHSU determined 11 credits as Institutional General Education Requirements. Consequently, all degree programs require a total of 41 credits of general education. In the fall of 2005, BHSU added an intensive writing requirement, a global awareness requirement for graduation in each undergraduate degree program.
Likewise, all syllabi for system general education courses must include the applicable general education goals. General education goals and qualifying general education classes can be found in the 2009-2010 Academic Catalog, pages 96-117 and on the BHSU website www.bhsu.edu/catalog.
