This website is for the Tiers General Education curriculum, which serves students who matriculated before Spring 2022. If you are looking for the General Education curriculum that will serve matriculants beginning in Spring 2022, please visit: ge.arizona.edu. The Tiers University-wide General Education program provides foundational knowledge and skills in support of the undergraduate degree programs and as preparation for life in a global society. The Tiers curriculum helps students attain the fundamental skills that all college-educated adults must have, whatever their specific areas of concentration (i.e., the major and minor). The experiences of General Education encourage students to develop a critical and inquiring attitude, an appreciation of interdisciplinary subject areas, acceptance of persons of different backgrounds or values, and a deepened sense of self.
