General Education at Bunker Hill Community College

If your catalog year is prior to Fall 2019, as indicated in your selfservice degree audit, please use the General Education areas.

To better prepare students to thrive in the twenty-first century workforce and to become engaged and informed citizens, the College provides all associate degree-seeking students with a wide-reaching set of General Education Outcomes, which align with our Institutional Learning Outcomes (Inquire, Communicate, Act, Grow) and Mass Transfer General Education Foundation requirements. At BHCC, these skills are incorporated into the curriculum to provide a cohesive education that prepares students to succeed in their chosen fields, in further study and in the roles and responsibilities they take on within their communities.

Students fulfill their General Education Requirements by completing one course from each of the seven General Education areas below. Students should consult their individual Program of Study Curriculum Map for General Education course requirements specific to their major. Some General Education requirements are met by concentration courses. Such instances are noted in Program of Study Curriculum Maps.
