General Education

Program Description

Woodmont College’s general education program (GEP) emerges from the college’s mission, integrating a rich liberal education with religious traditions and values. The GEP equips students with core knowledge and skills critical to student success in both academic and professional pursuits. Students develop analytical thinking, explore humanistic perspectives, assess empirical evidence, refine their art of communication, and investigate the ethical and social dimensions of civilization. The GEP fosters sophisticated and sensitive graduates committed to personal, professional, and communal growth.

Woodmont College identified both institutional outcomes as well as general education outcomes expected of the college’s graduates.
