General Studies Courses


Clarion University’s academic structure has recently been reorganized. The information on these pages is valid for students who began their degrees prior to fall 2014.

For students looking for information about degrees in the new academic structure, it can be found on the college web pages:

College of Arts, Education and Sciences
College of Business Administration and Information Science
Venango College

For students seeking information about degree programs prior to fall 2014, it is available in the 2013-15 Undergraduate Catalog or in the 2013-15 Graduate Catalog.

A new catalog reflecting the reorganized academic structure will be available this fall. Curricular questions should be directed to your academic advisor.

Courses carrying the GS label are interdisciplinary in nature or are courses which do not fit into any of the usual academic disciplines. They are taken as free electives, as personal development and life skills under general education, or may with departmental approval be substituted for required courses in some majors.
