Prepare for a successful academic career

Our General Studies courses combine engaging material with strategies to improve your note-taking, writing, reading, and study skills. As part of the course, you will meet with a tutor-mentor three hours per week to work on class assignments and learn about University resources.

We are offering three different content areas for Winter 2015: 

Immigration and Higher Education, What's an American

Race, Class and Gender in Sports Media

Smart-Phone, Small-Planet? Identity and Community in the Digital Age

These courses are great for freshmen, sophomore, and transfer students who are interested in improving their academic performance. Sections C & D will be reserved for English Language Learners (ELL) and recent immigrants.
