The goals of general education at bates
The goals of general education at Bates

  • To foster a comparative appreciation of how the several disciplines function and what they can teach us. This goal is met through the two General Education concentrations each student takes in addition to the major.

  • To help every graduate to meet the challenge of writing correctly and persuasively. This goal is met by a series of three writing-attentive courses taken at various points in a student's Bates career.

  • To ensure that all of our students have had formal instruction at the college level in the methods and findings of the sciences and in quantitative analysis. This goal is met by taking three distinct courses that call for scientific reasoning, develop quantitative literacy, and provide a laboratory experience.

New General Education Requirements for students entering the College in September 2007 as members of the Class of 2011

A Bates education balances breadth of knowledge and depth of study. Through the sustained focus of the major, students develop expertise in one or more areas. Every student declares at least one major, but many students double major. Students may also declare a minor, which offers directed study, though in fewer courses.

To achieve breadth and depth in his or her education, each student takes courses beyond the major. General Education requirements help students develop a range of skills across many disciplines and challenge them to think in complex, interdisciplinary ways. Courses and units that meet General Education requirements are taken throughout a student's career at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels.

In March 2006 the Bates faculty approved new General Education requirements, which go into effect with students entering the College in September 2007 as members of the Class of 2011. This overview of the new General Education requirements provides guidance to first-year students in planning their courses over the next year. Additional information is provided for faculty advisors.

Welcome to this important year at Bates.

As sophomores you are in the full swing of college life.  The sophomore year is a time of decisions, opportunities, and change.  It’s the year you move into ever more challenging courses. It’s the year you declare your Major, Minor and General Education Concentrations.  It’s the year you decide whether you would like to study abroad and where.  It’s a time you may apply for internships or jobs and the year many of you assume leadership positions as JAs, PALG leaders, writing assistants, in campus organizations, or in athletics.

The Sophomore Hub is designed to help you navigate some of the important developments of this year.

  • Declaring your "Major Plus Two"

  • Study Off Campus

  • Pursue Research with Faculty

  • Consider Graduate Fellowships

  • Students and Community
