General Education Requirements

The General Education curriculum at Winston-Salem State University is designed to offer students a mix of the liberal arts as a foundation for the major. Students are required to take approximately one-half (a minimum of 60 semester hours) of their courses outside of their major field of study. Most of these courses are taken in the first two years at the university. Students have choice in the courses they take and are encouraged to sample widely across the curriculum. There are some minimum expectations about the courses taken in general education, dependent on the student's status upon entering the university.
