Three broad developmental categories, each with specific objectives, constitute general education at MSU. To ensure that all aspects are included in the undergraduate experience, students must take courses from each area. The objectives for these broad areas are:
Critical Capacities and Skills (CCS) requires a student to demonstrate the capacity to think critically, write, collaborate, communicate, solve problems, and to deploy skills related to information and quantitative literacy.
Personal and Social Responsibility (PSR) requires a student to develop an understanding and commitment to individual well-being and to civic life and community needs.
