2015-2016 Catalog

General Education

Western has developed a curriculum that integrates the College’s five Goals for Student Success. These goals focus on strengthening student skills to solve problems both critically and creatively, to consider multiple perspectives, to retrieve relevant information, to communicate clearly, and to develop life skills that promote health and well-being. These skills are embedded in most WWCC courses, but the general education courses required in every Associate degree are designed to emphasize these skills.

The specific general education requirements vary for each Associate degree. See requirements for each Associate degree and policies regarding WWCC graduation requirements. Also, check in the Suggested Program to determine if a particular course is recommended. The courses listed here are current for the 2015-2016 catalog. Courses taken previously may not be listed though may count towards graduation.
