Courses in the General Education Curriculum

While providing the basis for a challenging and rewarding education, GenEd Common Ground courses introduce students to the rich diversity of course offerings at IUB and encourage them to explore new and inspiring fields of inquiry. Each year, faculty members from all academic units on the IU Bloomington campus review proposals for new additions to the list of GenEd Common Ground courses. Over 900 courses have been approved by the General Education Committee, giving students a wide variety of options for fulfilling their GenEd requirements.
