It's all too easy to think of General Education Requirements as something to do, rather than something that makes college a richer experience. The chance to choose from such a wide range of courses may not happen again, so take advantage of it now. Hunter's General Education Requirements promote critical thinking, provide exposure to a broad range of disciplines, and encourage in-depth study.
All of these goals help you become better prepared for a major and a future career!
So, choose GER courses based on your interests. When thinking about how to fulfill specific GER categories, read the list of options in the Hunter Catalog or check through the links on DIG . This is your chance to study something that will indulge your curiosity!
It may be that an intriguing course you select for GER becomes an intellectual passion. These kinds of courses can make college the best time in your life and open you up to new ways of understanding the world. If there is a major you are considering, try taking an introductory course - you can probably also use it to fulfill a GER requirement!
In considering GER courses, say to yourself, "It's about me!" And use the GER to explore your interests and passions!
