General Education

The General Education Department (GED) is a recent addition to the academic consortium of HBMSU. The General Education (GE) component of the undergraduate programs affirms the commitment of the university to its core philosophical tenets of being a learner-centric academic institution. The GE program engages learners in integrated learning activities of sufficient breadth and depth to prepare learners for further studies in their chosen disciplines and to equip them with the necessary skills of lifelong learning.

Undergraduate General Education Courses

In compliance with the requirements of the MOHESR, the general education courses are integral part of each of the university's undergraduate programs. In order to be considered eligible for graduation in an undergraduate program, a learner must complete at least 30 credit hours of a general education curriculum. This credit hour load is equivalent to 10 courses or approximately 24% of the total credit hours required for graduation in an undergraduate program. The General Education courses include the following:
