SMU’s curriculum will undergo a monumental redevelopment in just over one year.
Come fall 2012, the current General Education Curriculum (GEC) will be replaced with the new University Curriculum (UC).
Associate Dean for general education Dennis Cordell presented a report on the new curriculum at the Faculty Senate meeting Tuesday.
The General Education Review Committee crafted the new proposal that focuses on preparing students for graduation in the 21st century.
“The new curriculum really addresses some of the things that have been difficult for students,” said Vicki Hill, director at the Altshuler Learning Enhancement Center. “We’re interested more in what did you learn, not where did you learn it.”
