The General Education program at Brigham Young University helps students gain an understanding of the world, build character, and “seek learning, even by study and also by faith” (D&C 88:118). Faculty members provide students with a broad-based understanding of the sciences, cultures, and societies that, together with their majors and religious education classes, help students become engaged and compassionate citizens able to navigate complexity, diversity, and change so they might improve the moral, social, and ecological environments in which they and their families live.
