B.S. in Business General Education Requirements

The general education component is designed to emphasize cognitive development and is “general” in the following ways:

  • It is not directly related to students’ formal technical, vocational or professional preparation.
  • It is a part of every student’s course of study, regardless of his/her area of emphasis.
  • It is intended to impart common knowledge, intellectual concepts, and attitudes that provide a foundation upon which students can build a rewarding educational experience.

Through NCU’s general education courses, students will acquire the breadth of knowledge characteristic of a liberal arts education.

General Electives Three Courses (9 credits)

In order to develop additional depth and breadth in their major, students are encouraged to take intermediate or advanced courses in discipline-related areas. General elective courses may be met by approved transfer credit courses or by the recommended NCU courses and may not duplicate courses that meet any other curriculum requirement.
