Employers are looking for students with a broad-based education, with knowledge of topics beyond their vocational program.  General Education courses are therefore required by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development for all post-secondary students.  The purpose of a Gen Ed course is to provide breadth of knowledge outside of the student's program area, with the ultimate goal of developing a student's sense of social responsibility and citizenship.

According to ministry guidelines, Gen Ed courses fall into one of the following ‘themes' or subject areas:  Arts in Society, Civic Life, Social and Cultural Understanding, Personal Understanding, and Science and Technology.  We offer a very wide variety of Gen Ed courses at Fanshawe, in subjects such as Anthropology, Film, Psychology, Sociology, Literature, History, Cultural Studies, Indigenous Studies, and much more. We are continuously developing new courses to offer each semester to keep our curriculum relevant and interesting to students. 

Please take some time to review the wide variety of Gen Ed courses offered at Fanshawe.  We hope you find something you enjoy!
