General Education Requirements


LSUE’s General Education Requirements result from a conviction of the faculty that all students need to reason logically, communicate effectively, and effectively engage the world around them.

General education courses are intended to

  • cultivate the student’s artistic and scientific knowledge and appreciation;
  • teach the student to communicate effectively a broad range of knowledge, beliefs, and emotions;
  • teach the student to locate, analyze, synthesize, evaluate, and apply information effectively, including its effective communication to others; and to
  • teach the student to apply the knowledge of natural science to natural phenomenon.

LSU Eunice believes that students should acquire a substantial knowledge when completing any associate degree program. All graduates of LSU Eunice degree programs are expected to demonstrate the following general education objectives.
