Waynesburg U. reenergizes general education requirements

Places emphasis on student flexibility

Beginning in the 2024-25 academic year, new Waynesburg University students will experience a new general education curriculum that provides more flexibility while preserving the foundation of a liberal arts education. The curriculum, “Explore and Connect,” is the result of several years of focused faculty discussions and consistent feedback from students who desired the option to customize their liberal arts experience. The new requirements will be applicable to the incoming class of 2024.

Faculty members considered input from University alumni, several departmental advisory boards, and external corporate partners to revise and develop curriculum to ensure that graduates meet the expectations of employers and 21st century workplace challenges.

Waynesburg GROWS: property expansion

New properties spark an opportunity to explore the development of new programs and the expansion of existing ones, while providing new experiences to students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community.
