Philosophy of General Education

The Philosophy of General Education of Bryan College of Health Sciences is built on the premise that education is more than a program of study. It is a life-long, interactive process that builds on previous experience and expands one's world view promoting change in attitudes, beliefs, values and/or behaviors.

General Education establishes a broad foundation of knowledge that is essential to the development of an educated person. Mulitidimensional, holistic growth of the individual is promoted through an integrated study of the Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Communication, Mathematics, Humanities/Fine Arts and Business Management. A core of General Education knowledge is fundamental to any area of study within Bryan College of Health Sciences.

  1. An understanding of the forces of nature, including life and physical sciences that affect human response to and interaction with the world around them.

  5. The ability to understand, appreciate and engage in creative expression, philosophical thought and ethical decision making.
