General Education at Eastern University

Undergraduate general education (GE) at Eastern University prepares students for thoughtful and productive lives of faith, leadership and service. As a Christian university, one of our missional aims is to ensure that this educational experience is informed and shaped by Christian insights about the human and natural world. To this end, Eastern University’s general education exposes students to the breadth of the liberal arts as well as our missional dedication to faith, reason and justice. Each learning outcome is carefully measured within the general education core to ensure that our undergraduate programs offer valuable skills that students will need to succeed academically, socially, and vocationally.

Eastern University’s general education curriculum is designed not only to satisfy the Christian mission of our institution but also to satisfy the requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Education, which requires that baccalaureate degrees include at least 40 credits of general education courses in a broad spectrum of disciplines, specifically including courses in the following areas: humanities, arts, communications, social sciences, mathematics, technology, and science. The elements of this core curriculum are provided below.

I. The General Education Core

The general education core requires at least 45 credits, including 39 credits from the standard general education curriculum and 6 credits nested within the major. Transfer students may have different requirements, depending on the total number of credits earned before entering Eastern University (see section II, General Education Core for Transfer Students). Students in the Templeton Honors College must complete an alternative curriculum.

Eastern University students satisfy the core curriculum requirements by successfully passing the courses listed in the categories below and achieving a grade C or higher in ENGL 102 College Writing.

Spirituality, 9 credits

Spirituality sets humanity apart from the rest of the natural world. We are more than just biological beings vying for survival; we are social beings who, on our best days, cultivate care and compassion for our neighbors, even our enemies. Inspired by the revolutionary life of Jesus, the study of belief allows us to reflect upon our complex questions about God, the holy scriptures, and our service to others in light of God’s love and compassion.

Major Declaration

A grade of C or better is required in all courses listed in the major, including prerequisites. The requirements for the major are determined by the date the major is formally declared. 

Traditional Baccalaureate undergraduate students will enter the University as an Exploratory Studies major until the time that they declare a major. Students should formally declare their majors as early as possible, but not later than the sophomore year. Forms are available in the Office of the Registrar and require signatures of department chairs of intended majors. Students in nontraditional undergraduate programs enter with a declared major.

Some majors require a formal application beyond the major declaration card. Contact the Athletic Training, Chemistry, Education, Music, Nursing, and Social Work departments for details.

Change of Major

A traditional baccalaureate student who desires to change majors must complete a change of major card (found in the Office of the Registrar) and have it signed by the department chairpersons of old and new majors.

An accelerated nontraditional associates or bachelor’s degree student must get approval to change the major by the original advisor and the program director of the new major. Some programs have established deadlines for changing majors. It is the student’s responsibility to consult with the program advisor to clarify eligibility and procedures.

Second Major

Students are required to complete the requirements for only one major in order to graduate. However, traditional Baccalaureate students may elect to complete the requirements for a second major under the following conditions:

  1. Fulfilling the requirements of a second major will be the student’s responsibility; no official advisor in the second major department will be assigned. The student must consult with the departmental faculty for the correct sequence of courses.
  2. The student must resolve any course conflicts caused by the second major’s requirements. Semester schedules of classes are designed to minimize course conflicts within a department so that one major can be completed without course conflicts.
  3. A second major should not be declared until a student’s junior year after many of the courses have been taken or scheduled. Student must obtain the department chairperson’s signature on second major card, found in the Office of the Registrar.
  4. Courses used for a student’s first major may be counted toward the student’s second major where it is appropriate, since the second major is considered to be an elective of the student. All requirements for the second major must be met.
  5. The University does not guarantee the ability to make every combination of two majors possible for a student. Class conflicts cannot always be avoided.

Individualized Major

A traditional baccalaureate student with fewer than 60 earned credits may propose an individualized major leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. The individualized major must be developed with and sponsored by a full-time Eastern faculty member, who will then serve as the student’s faculty advisor. The major must focus on a central theme not expressed in existing majors; draw from several disciplines; range in credits from 33 to 60; include at least one-third of the credits in 300 and 400-level courses; include at least one-half of the credits from Eastern’s course catalog; and include a writing-intensive course and a culminating project, thesis or seminar.

The proposed curriculum and justification for the individualized major should be submitted in electronic form by the faculty sponsor to the Registrar (format is available in the Office of the Registrar). The Registrar will review the proposal, add comments, and forward to the Dean for action.

Once approved, any changes to the major must be approved by the faculty advisor and the Registrar.

Second Baccalaureate Degree

A student who holds a bachelor’s degree from Eastern or from another college or university may earn a second bachelor’s degree from Eastern under the following conditions:

  1. Students must apply for admission through the undergraduate Admissions Office and submit official college transcripts.
  2. A student who holds a bachelor’s degree from Eastern University must complete 32 hours of credit beyond the 120 hours required for the first degree, making a total of at least 152 hours. The student must fulfill all the core curriculum requirements in effect at the time of return and must fulfill all current requirements for the major in the second degree.
  3.  A student who holds a bachelor’s degree from another college or university must complete a minimum of 32 hours at Eastern. He/she must fulfill all the requirements for the major, must take 40% or more of the major course credits at Eastern, and must complete all the core curriculum requirements in effect at the time of admission. Credits for the degree must total 120 hours or more.
  4. Financial Aid for a Second Baccalaureate Degree is limited to the Federal Direct Loan Program. Eligibility is determined by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If the student is currently repaying prior loans, those loans may be eligible for an in-school deferment. The student should contact his/her lender for more information on deferments.

Affiliate Programs

Cooperative programs with nearby Cabrini, Rosemont and Valley Forge Military Colleges are among the special studies options offered to Eastern University students. Full-time traditional undergraduate students registered for at least 12 Eastern University credits may request one course per semester at no additional tuition (fees for course materials may be assessed by the host college). The courses taken and grades earned are reported on the student’s Eastern University grade report and academic transcript. Grades are calculated into the session and cumulative grade-point average according to Eastern’s quality point schedule. Students follow Eastern’s registration and drop/add procedures but are subject to the academic calendars, policies, and regulations of the host institution. Transportation arrangements are the responsibility of the student.
