Welcome to General Education at URI

The General Education Program at URI reflects a contemporary learning experience that allows our undergraduate students to examine and engage the complex, interpersonal, civic, and global issues defining our world today. Our program offers a well-rounded and intellectually empowering student-centered experience that prepares undergraduates for their chosen careers and builds a foundation of life-long learning and success. At URI, we envision the program as every student’s “second major” – an opportunity for students to explore their interests at multiple levels and satisfy and further spark their intellectual curiosity.
