General Education Requirements

The mission of General Education at The College of St. Scholastica is to engage students in defining and practicing responsible living and meaningful work. The program has three components:

  • Dignitas, a first-year experience designed to ease the transition to college and introduce students to St. Scholastica
  • Pathways, a range of liberal arts courses
  • Writing Intensive, a senior-level writing component

Historically Benedictines have been scholars, caregivers, educators and artists. The liberal arts mirror the broad pathways that Benedictines have pioneered. The rigor and breadth of our program best prepare St. Scholastica students to meet the present and face the future with wisdom, faith and imagination.

The College of St. Scholastica outcomes define the components of this distinctive program and reflect the Benedictine values of our College:

  • Heritage
  • Scope and Depth of Learning
  • Intellectual and Foundational Skills
  • Personal and Social Responsibility
  • Integration of Learning
