General Education Experience: Learning for Life

Empowering students to meet the changing demands of the 21st-century

Vision Statement

The University’s general education curriculum focuses on fundamental skills and ways of thinking necessary for effective engagement in today’s complex, interconnected world. The Learning for Life program engages students in problem solving from multiple perspectives and hones their ability to make connections and communicate across different disciplinary and cultural boundaries, laying a foundation for a lifetime of intellectual curiosity and learning.


Brockport’s Learning for Life general education program is 31-40 credits. The combination of classes that students select is up to them, based on their professional, personal, and intellectual interests. The program’s emphasis on transferable skills ensures that each course will contribute meaningfully to students’ goals. Advisors work with students to help them tailor the general education program to their interests.
