An outcomes-based, student-centered general education program


This distinctive model of general education emphasizes the connectedness of disciplines, knowledge and skills, and recognizes the achievement of general education outcomes outside the traditional classroom and across university divisions.

This program is for:

  • Freshmen enrolled Summer 2012 and after
  • ACT 101 freshmen
  • Transfer students enrolled Summer 2014 and after

For the first time in Bloomsburg University's rich history, students are taking full ownership of the way they achieve the goals for general education. It's your general education. It's your foundation for higher education achievement. It's your track to ultimate professional and personal success.
MyCore Goals

MyCore

BU's MyCore general education program adopts a goal-focused point system, independent of the academic credit system, which allows any course or co-curricular activity to contribute to one or more general education outcomes.

  • A history course with extensive writing may not only contribute to a students’ knowledge of the humanities but also their ability to communicate.
  • A community service or leadership training program operated by the student affairs division could be counted towards the student goal of exhibiting good citizenship.

Any one course may deliver multiple general education outcomes!
