As a liberal arts institution, Willamette structures its curriculum to provide students with a broad range of instruction in the natural and social sciences, the humanities, languages, and the arts. In addition to majoring in a discipline of their choice, students will learn to approach questions and problems from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, enhancing their ability to craft rich and complex solutions. Willamette’s General Education program is designed to develop students’ critical and creative thinking, strengthen their writing and communication skills, and provide them with tools to navigate an increasingly diverse world. General Education, then, plays a critical part in preparing Willamette graduates to transform knowledge into action and lead lives of contribution, achievement, and meaning.
