General Education Requirements

Students pursuing an Associate of Arts (AA) degree are required to complete a set of lower-division General Education Requirements (GERs). UM's GER core provides a broad academic base that supports both undergraduate learning at the University of Montana and continued learning following graduation. While the GERs provide students considerable flexibility in selecting courses, it has a set of common educational objectives for all students. These requirements may be reviewed on our UM GERs webpage, or on the UM Catalog General Education webpage.

There is a second set of general education requirements, known as the Montana University System Transfer Core, or MUS Core. This set of GERs is designed for use by transfer students who move from one institution to another within the Montana University System. If you are a transfer student, please review the our MUS Core webpage for more information.
