General Education

General Education Requirements for Associate of Arts, Associate of Business and Associate of Science Degrees

General Education broadens your perspectives and introduces you to several important fields of knowledge. In meeting Eastern Arizona College's GE requirements you will also gain increased awareness of ethnicity, race and gender, and international and historical influences on our culture.

The Arizona Board of Regents has agreed to three transfer general education programs. The purpose of the agreement is to ensure that when you complete your GE requirements at EAC you will be able to transfer to an Arizona public university without loss of credits.

The three transfer general education programs are the Arizona General Education Curriculum, Associate of Arts (AGEC-A), the Arizona General Education Curriculum, Associate of Business (AGEC-B), and the Arizona General Education Curriculum, Associate of Science (AGEC-S).

Eastern Arizona College has established general education programs satisfying each of the three AGECs. It will usually be in your best interest to complete the AGEC for your major at EAC before transferring to an Arizona university. When you have completed the AGEC, EAC will certify your achievement on your academic transcript. Completing the AGEC for your major at EAC fulfills the lower division, general education requirements of the corresponding baccalaureate degree at each of the three state universities. Should you elect to not complete an AGEC at EAC you will not be afforded the same transfer status as those who do. Your courses will be evaluated on a course- by-course basis by the university to which you transfer.

Some majors, particularly in the professional fields, have significant prerequisites and/or program requirements that will not transfer within one of the three general education programs described above. If you have selected a major that is not listed in the EAC catalog, or one that is listed as a Transfer Guide-Extra Requirements (TG-XR) degree, carefully consult the catalog and/or curriculum transfer guide of the university to which you plan to transfer and the Course Equivalency Guide before you register for your GE courses. Obtaining assistance in this process from an advisor at the university you plan to transfer to is strongly recommended. EAC faculty advisors and counselors can also assist you.

You must meet the General Education requirements by selecting appropriate courses from the required program areas. In some cases, a degree program may require you to select specific courses rather than choose from the list of approved GE courses. Required courses for each EAC curricula are listed in the curriculum section of the catalog under the heading General Education Requirements.

Intensive Writing/Critical Inquiry

To complete your AGEC, you must complete an Intensive Writing/Critical Inquiry course. These courses are designated in the list below with the notation (IW).

Global/International/Historical Awareness

The AGEC also requires that you complete a Global/International/Historical Awareness course. Courses that meet this requirement are designated with the notation (GIH).

A single course will not be used to fulfill both the Intensive Writing/Critical Inquiry and the Global/International/Historical Awareness requirements. To minimize the number of classes required to complete GE requirements, select courses from the humanities or social sciences that also fulfill the Intensive Writing/Critical Inquiry or Global/International/Historical Awareness requirements.

Ethnicity, Race and Gender

Course content addressing ethnicity, race and gender is embedded in the College’s humanities and social science courses that are part of the general education program.
