All students must complete a minimum of 45 units of General Education courses to qualify for a degree. These courses develop skills such as writing and mathematics, and include courses in humanities, biological and physical sciences, creative arts and the social sciences.
Students are encouraged to work with their advisors to find courses within these disciplines that are of most interest.
All students at Dominican are required to fulfill the General Education requirements. These requirements are outlined and kept current in the University Catalog. However, transfer units from other college-accredited institutions may apply and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
If you are a transfer student, be sure to collect documentation on courses you have already taken at other schools. Entrance exams will also help your advisor and the registrar determine which classes are most appropriate for your learning level.
Throughout your time at Dominican, your faculty advisor will keep a detailed record of the courses you take. Once your major is declared, you will be assigned to a faculty advisor specifically within your discipline. Faculty advisors are knowledgeable about General Education and major requirements and will counsel you on which courses you need in order to graduate.
The General Education requirements are also listed in the University Catalog. If there have been revisions to those requirements, the catalog will reflect them. View the most current University Catalog.
There are over 30 undergraduate programs to choose from. Explore one of the four schools: the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the School of Business and Leadership; the School of Education and Counseling Psychology; and the School of Health and Natural Sciences.
