The Value of General Education

By completing SUNY New Paltz’s General Education (GE) Program, you will lay the foundation for your intellectual development by exploring new ways of thinking, researching, and communicating.

GE courses teach you how to think instead of what to think.

In this way, they enrich learning in your major while also developing your capacity to adapt to an ever-changing array of career fields.
