Liberal Education Program - Tier 1

In the first tier, small classes will help you develop the skills you need to succeed in college-level courses. These classes will also introduce you to areas of knowledge and discussions of values. Your Tier 1 foundations will prepare you to have a rich experience and to perform to high standards in the rest of your university education.

As you progress from Tier 1 into Tiers 2 and 3, your liberal education will continue to build on and strengthen these skills. Tier 1 courses fall into the following categories:

All students will take at least one course in each of these areas. Your adviser will be able to help you choose which courses will work best for you.
