Objectives of GED
- Today’s workplace is increasingly multidisciplinary – the greater the understanding students of different disciplinary aims and methodologies, the better their judgments about which approach or sets of approaches are best. The aim is to provide students a number of basic subjects by way of building the intellectual foundations and skills absolutely necessary for any university-level education.
- Students will have a stronger, multidisciplinary base to draw from when making decisions in their chosen field.
- Students may change career directions several times in their working life – lifelong learning and a broad knowledge base can help them make those transitions – and even welcome them.
- Students may discover a new passion, a new area of interest that they may wish to pursue more deeply.
