A General Education is the foundation of a liberal arts education. The General Education sequence at CCSJ will prepare students for success in their chosen major by providing a foundation of skills, knowledge, and values that reflect our mission.

All students, regardless of their major, must complete the General Education sequence.

What does it mean to attend a Liberal Arts College
in the Catholic Tradition?


Attending a liberal arts college means that we are focused on our students! Everything that we do revolves around our students and their experiences.
YOU BELONG!

Attending a liberal arts college means that we are a community that celebrates individualism and relationships among students, faculty, staff, and community partners.
YOU BELONG!

Attending a liberal arts college means that we are focused on supporting student activities that provide opportunities for student leadership, interest exploration, and activities outside of the classroom that make attending CCSJ holistically fulfilling.
YOU BELONG!

Attending a liberal arts college means that our students have access to their professors, particularly in their general education courses. Course sections are small enough that each student has a voice in the classroom and faculty have quality time with their students in order to get to know them, evaluate and critique their work, and serve as mentors.
YOU BELONG!

Attending a liberal arts college means that students will be in a learning environment where their thoughts and ideas are heard, where they will be exposed to different perspectives, and where they will become critical thinkers.
YOU BELONG!

Attending a liberal arts college means that students take classes in many disciplines. Liberal arts colleges provide students with the opportunity to learn about humanities, the arts, natural sciences, mathematics, and social sciences. A liberal arts education prepares students for a variety of career paths.
YOU BELONG!

Attending a liberal arts college means that we prepare students for graduate school through our focus on critical thinking, undergraduate research opportunities and class participation.
YOU BELONG!

Attending a liberal arts college means that we prepare students to be successful in the workforce. Students will be equipped with communication (both written and verbal), analytical, and teamwork skills that employers demand from their employees.
YOU BELONG!

Take the next step!
