Enhanced General Education Core

SUNYIT offers freshmen the opportunity to complete a significant portion of the general education requirements via a core sequence of coursework that integrates four general education requirements into three courses. The three courses are IDS 201, “Perspectives on Knowledge,” IDS 102, “Art and Culture,” and IDS 103, “Science, Technology, and Human Values.” Students who complete all three core courses will have satisfied four general education areas: Western Civilization, Other World Civilizations, Humanities, and Fine Arts. The three core courses do not need to be taken in sequence, and students who complete only one or two of the core courses should meet with a general education advisor to determine the general education credit they have earned.
