2020-2021 Undergraduate Academic Catalog


General education, including a foundation in the liberal arts, is the cornerstone of a university education. Its purpose is to develop in students the knowledge, skills, and character necessary to live thoughtful, ethical, and successful lives, both professionally and personally, and to foster a love of lifelong learning.

General education is a requirement at Lesley University and it is delivered with options for flexibility and choice. Lesley University considers past learning and experience when helping students shape their general education curriculum choices to best meet their individual needs. Courses to meet the liberal arts requirements of general education are available throughout the offerings of Lesley University.
