Academic Spotlight: Interesting Classes at PUC

While you will obviously take many classes for the major you end up studying, one thing you may not know about college is you will also need to take general education classes as well. What are general education requirements? Essentially, it’s classes that cover basic ideas and concepts PUC wants all of its graduates to know, like English, history, religion, etc. It amounts to approximately 23 courses (68-79 hours) for students studying bachelor of science degrees and 24-27 courses (72-97 hours) for those studying bachelor of arts degrees. You can read “What on Earth are General Education Requirements?!” to learn more.

We thought it would be fun to highlight some of the different and unique classes at PUC students may be able to take to fulfill their GE requirements or simply take as an elective.
