General Education Assessment

UW-Madison’s General Education Program was created to ensure that every baccalaureate student at UW–Madison acquires the foundation of an undergraduate education, which includes elements for living a productive life, being citizens of the world, appreciating aesthetic values and engaging in lifelong learning in a changing world.

The University General Education Committee (UGEC) oversees the campus-wide program, which includes managing the program’s requirements, leading the assessment of general education and reporting to shared governance through the University Academic Planning Council.

All undergraduate students must satisfy the university’s General Education Requirements. View the requirements and associated learning outcomes in Guide.
