General Education

Underlying all the University’s programs is the conviction that an educated person is one who knows that which is important for all people to know. Courses required for your major may prepare you for your vocation; the General Education program provides you the integrative intellectual experience common to all Chico graduates.

General Education (GE) will help you to see your major’s place in your total education by showing you that knowledge is not isolated, that what you know of one subject is related to what you know of another, that there is always more to know, and that what you know affects the way you live. By suggesting the essential unity and wholeness of knowledge, GE counteracts the sense of fragmentation you may feel while studying bits and pieces of issues and information through the various colleges, schools, and departments of the University.

You, like many new students, may be uncertain about your choice of a major or career field. Thus, in addition to the primary goal of broadening your awareness and understanding, an early focus on GE may help you become better acquainted with yourself and discover and deepen your interests and abilities in various academic disciplines and programs. If you are undeclared or uncertain about your major, carefully review programs you are considering, taking note of required GE courses and modifications. The Evaluations or Advising and Orientation Offices can help you plan your GE program in such a way that you take full advantage of GE as a powerful career exploration tool.

Which Requirements Do You Follow?

CSU, Chico revised its General Education Program effective fall semester 1987 and again in fall 1993. You must determine which of these programs you are to follow:

  1. The Current 1993+ General Education Program. If you were admitted and enrolled (matriculated) as a first-time freshman beginning with the fall 1993 semester or thereafter, either at CSU, Chico or at another institution in The California State University or California Community College systems, follow the current GE program described in this section.
  2. Prior General Education Programs. If you (1) established catalog rights in The California State University or the California Community Colleges prior to fall 1993; (2) earned transferable college credit during that time; and (3) have since remained "continuously enrolled," you may elect to follow either the GE program in effect when you established your catalog rights, or the current 1993 or a subsequent GE program. See the section, "Election of Graduation Requirements," in the University Catalog for a definition of "continuous enrollment."

If you meet criterion 2, the Evaluations Office will automatically prepare your Course and Credit Evaluation using the appropriate GE program. You may obtain copies of descriptions of previous GE programs, including lists of courses which apply, from the Advising Office, MLIB 190. If instead you prefer to follow the 1993 GE program, notify the Evaluations Office, 530-898-5957.

All other students with prior college enrollment and who do not meet the criteria listed above will follow the General Education program described here. Enrollment in a summer school program, extension course work (including Open University), non-transferable college course work, or concurrent college courses while in high school do not constitute "matriculation" (formal admission and enrollment).

If you have questions regarding the General Education program you should follow, sign up in the Student Records Office windows in Meriam Library 180 for an appointment to see your evaluator, or call the Evaluations Office at 530-898-5957.

Important Notes to Help You with General Education Planning

  1. No more than 39 semester units of GE credit may be certified by other institutions to apply to GE requirements at Chico. NOTE: If you are a transfer student from a California community college who has completed the entire Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), you will not be held for additional lower-division GE requirements. However, you must complete CSU, Chico’s Ethnic and Non-Western requirements, if these courses were not taken within your IGETC program, and, if necessary, the American History and Ideals requirements, which cannot be included within the IGETC certification program. All students transferring with IGETC must complete the 9-unit Upper-Division Thematic GE requirement at Chico.
  2. If, by virtue of transferring or readmission after an extended absence, you are required to switch from an earlier GE pattern, we will grant as much GE credit as possible for courses previously taken.
  3. If you transfer to another CSU campus, Chico will certify a maximum of 39 GE units. The remaining 9 units must be completed at the campus awarding your degree.
  4. Many courses which meet either the Ethnic Studies or the Non-Western Studies graduation requirement also meet specific GE Area requirements. These courses are identified both in the following GE program and on the Ethnic and Non-Western Studies course list at the end of this chapter. Other Ethnic and Non-Western courses not currently approved for GE are also listed at the end of this chapter.
  5. Several majors require you to take specific GE courses and/or recommend certain GE courses as elective credit for the major. In a few high-unit majors we have made modifications in the GE requirement in order to reduce the total number of units required to complete the program. It is very important that you review the description of your major in the University Catalog with your advisor. You must determine whether or not specific GE courses are recommended or required or if there are modifications which you should consider for your major. The GE modifications are summarized later in this chapter.
  6. Courses used to meet the History, Constitution, and American Ideals requirement (HIST 130 and POLS 155) do not count toward the 48 units of GE in most cases. There are exceptions: this requirement may count toward GE for students majoring in certain high-unit programs (See "Majors with Important Modifications to GE Requirements"). Exceptions will be noted on your transfer evaluation.
  7. Passing scores on some Advanced Placement and CLEP exams can fulfill GE requirements. See the "Evaluation of Transfer Credit" section in the University Catalog and an evaluator in MLIB 180 or advisor in MLIB 190 for specifics.

General Education Evaluation

When you have completed at least 39 semester units of GE, review your degree audit via the Chico State Connections Portal (http://portal.csuchico.edu). If you have course work taken prior to 1997 you may need to request a written Evaluation/Degree Audit from the Evaluations Office, MLIB 180. Evaluators will review your record and mail you and your advisor a completed Degree Audit evaluation.

General Education Course Notation and Footnotes

Courses which may count toward both a major and General Education are identified by asterisks (*) in the program requirements description of a major in the University Catalog.

General Education courses listed in this section which are also applicable to the Ethnic or Non-Western requirements are footnoted Eth or NW respectively.

General Education Course Requirements Overview

You are to complete 48 units selected from designated General Education categories and courses. If you are enrolled in or are considering one of our high-unit majors, such as engineering, nursing, or liberal studies, carefully review the GE changes outlined in "Majors with Important Modifications to General Education Requirements" found later in this chapter.

Note the following general guidelines:

  1. Courses must be selected according to the following pattern of General Education: 12 units from core requirements (Area A); 27 units from breadth courses (Areas B, C, D, E); and 9 units from Upper-Division Themes.
  2. The 9-unit Upper-Division Theme may not be taken until you have completed 45 semester units and GE core requirements.
  3. A minimum of 9 of the 48 GE units must be taken at CSU, Chico.
  4. Updates on GE offerings are published annually in the Class Schedule. Please refer to the GE section in the current Class Schedule when selecting your GE courses; GE courses are periodically reviewed and may be added to or deleted from the approved list.

General Education Upper-Division Thematic: 9 Units

9 units required:

One GE goal is to provide you the opportunity to integrate and apply skills and knowledge gained through your college experience to issues and areas of life you will face as a citizen of a complex world. You should be able to relate your major to seemingly unrelated knowledge. To help achieve these goals, 9 of the required 48 GE units must be selected from upper-division courses within one of the themes described below. Complete 45 semester units before you begin your upper-division theme.

Each of the themes represents a topic of far-reaching concern. In addition to allowing you to immerse yourself in depth in the topic, you have the opportunity to draw from your previous General Education experiences and skills in exploring the dimensions of the theme. The content of the three courses you take will be drawn somewhat equally from the natural sciences, the humanities and fine arts, and the social sciences. But in contrast to the Breadth Areas of General Education, theme courses tend to be more integrative among those three areas.

If you first enrolled in college prior to fall 1993, you may be eligible to follow an earlier version of the 9-unit upper-division requirement. Note the following guidelines:

First-time freshmen who were admitted and matriculated beginning with the fall 1993 semester or thereafter, either at CSU, Chico or at another institution in the CSU or California Community College systems, must select one of the themes described in this section.

Prior college enrollment: If you 1) established catalog rights in the California State University or the California Community Colleges prior to fall 1993; 2) earned transferable college credit during that time; and 3) have since remained "continuously enrolled" in an accredited institution of higher learning, you may elect to complete a theme either from those described below or from themes which are described in a previous Class Schedule or an earlier University Catalog. The information is also available on the CSU, Chico Web.

Direct questions with regard to your eligibility for earlier versions of the themes to the Evaluations Office.

You must take all 9 units from within the same theme. Exceptions to this rule are described in the "Majors with Important Modifications to General Education Requirements" section which follows the theme descriptions. In some of the themes, you must follow the specified sequence, either beginning with a foundation course, or concluding with a Capstone course.

Theme A: American Identities and Cultures

Theme Coordinator: TBA

The landscape of American cultures and ideas, and its scientific and technological base, provide a uniquely pluralistic background for individual Americans. This theme investigates important aspects of the rich cultural complexity which contributes to the American cultural landscape. Courses also follow the search for common community, the effects of this search upon an individual’s cultural roots, and the possibility of a pluralistic society which embraces cultural diversity. The metaphor of the salad bowl replaces that of the melting pot to reveal the many Americas.

Theme G: Global Issues

Theme Coordinator: Mitchell Johns, PLMS 219.

This theme focuses on the enduring global issues of food, environment, human rights, justice, and social conflict. Exploration of these issues can be done through careful selection of courses in the theme. Global food issues focuses on the area of worldwide food production, distribution, and consumption. It explores crop production systems, biotechnology/GMO, environment, politics, and economics of food production and distribution, hunger and poverty as a method of inquiry into the theme issues. Geopolitics investigates the nature of the world and its physical, cultural, economic, and political evolution and studies how the process of global interdependence, in its clash with local authorities and conditions, forces re-evaluation of the enduring theme issues.

Theme J: Minds, Brains, and Machines

Theme Coordinator: Edward Vela, MODC 110.

One of the most extraordinary advances of twentieth century science and technology has been the emergence of artificial intelligence in machines. The very possibility of artificial intelligence inspires profound questions: Can machines think? Can brains be thought of as a kind of machine? Is language necessary for intelligence? Is having a conscious mind necessary for intelligence? How are mind and brain related? In this theme you will learn about the contributions to the interdisciplinary research and debates concerning the nature of intelligence and mind made by scientists and scholars in a variety of fields.

Theme R: Global Music, Culture, and Technology

Theme Coordinator: Paul Friedlander, PAC 101.

Music has always been an integral part of civilization. For many people, it is a significant part of their spiritual being and a valued companion in their lifelong search for meaning. This theme examines the nature of seven styles of contemporary global music and how they can be understood through the study of surrounding culture and influenced by the historical development of musical technology and its basis in concurrent science.

Students will explore: 1) rural blues of 20th century America, 2) son and salsa from Cuba, 3) the Beatles from England, 4) reggae from Jamaica, 5) Afro-pop from Senegal/Mali, 6) Aboriginal rock from Australia, and 7) rap from the United States. For each musical style, students will listen to and study the nature of the music in the capstone course, Case Studies in Global Music (MUSC 395), in an emphatically non-technical manner. Previously, students will have examined how culture works and generates musical meaning in American Popular Culture (AMST 335) and will have explored the science of music and the history of music technology in Sound in the Environment (PHYS 360).

Students will listen to a lot of music. In addition, classroom instruction will include lecture, discussion, video and film, live performance, experiments, computer demonstrations, concert attendance, and group projects.

Theme S: Wealth, Power, and Inequality

Theme Coordinator: Olga Bright, BUTE 608.

Inequalities in wealth and status are universal social phenomena and give rise in all societies to important issues regarding the distribution of income, wealth, and opportunities for mobility. The discussion requires empirically identifying the extent of inequality as well as identifying the causal structural mechanisms in society that give rise to inequality. Finally, there is the normative issue of fairness, of distributional justice. This theme integrates these three areas to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the nature of inequality, and to prepare them to contribute thoughtfully to the ongoing public dialog over issues of wealth, power, and inequality.

Theme T: The Child

Theme Coordinator: Brad Glanville, MODC 101.

As we move into the 21st century, it is vital to remind ourselves that children are society’s most important resource. How a society values and raises its children augurs much about the future of that society. This theme is designed to help students learn about children’s physical, psychological, emotional, and social development, and how growth and development are impacted by the environments in which children are raised–from smaller family units to larger cultural systems.

However, this theme is about more than the biological and behavioral study of child development. This theme also considers development in the light of a broader and deeper examination of historical and contemporary conceptualizations of childhood as revealed in world literature and philosophies. Furthermore, this theme provides students the opportunity to examine a wide range of critical and persistent social, political, economic, health, and moral issues children and their presence in society raise, both generally and as individuals.

Theme U: Catastrophe and Humanity

Theme Coordinator: Karin Hoover, PHSC 226.

All human societies have pondered the meaning of catastrophe as they have experienced, planned for, and recovered from disasters and catastrophic events. This theme explores the range of human responses to catastrophe, not only grief and dismay but also resilience and hope. It provides a variety of perspectives on some perennial issues that societies confront as they seek to adapt to an often unstable and unpredictable world: understanding the relationship between society and nature, the role of civilization in managing crises, the social construction of "normality," the inevitability of change, and the search for meaning.
