Interdisciplinary General Education Program
The Interdisciplinary General Education Program (IGE) offers students a unique and stimulating choice to fulfill 32 units of general education requirements. These requirements, which apply to all California State University campuses, help students broaden their skills and understanding in areas beyond the major and develop the qualities of an educated individual. Founded in 1983, IGE is one of the longest-lived interdisciplinary programs in the California State University and has earned national recognition for its success in general education, team teaching, outcomes assessment and learning communities.
The IGE curriculum encourages students to connect personal experience with course readings, to explore their values and goals, and to develop their own ideas and interpretations. Students learn through discussions, papers and team projects. IGE students also attend music, theatre, museum and other cultural experiences that enhance the curriculum.
