General Education Requirements - Business Administration

The Brandman University General Education Program is divided into three segments: Broad Integrative Knowledge, University Degree Qualifications and Disciplinary Skills. The coursework in the Broad Integrative Knowledge segment encompasses broad subject areas that are important to students’ general knowledge. The courses take a critical, analytical perspective on knowledge, considering how knowledge has been acquired and the assumptions, theories, or paradigms that guide its use. A total of 42 credit hours in the areas of Basic Skills, Breadth, and the Liberal Education Foundations are required in the Broad, Integrative Knowledge segment of the General Education Program.
 

The General Education Program at Brandman University provides through the liberal arts tradition the intellectual foundation that enables students to expand their perspectives beyond the focus of a major. Brandman University graduates will be intellectually flexible, creative, articulate, and prepared for active and life-long participation in the knowledge-based world of the 21st century.

  • Applied Learning: Design a project, paper, performance, or other appropriate task linking knowledge skills from work, experiential learning, or community activities with knowledge acquired in academic disciplines.
