The Sonoma State General Education and Seawolf Experience program provides students an intentional, coherent, inclusive undergraduate experience across multiple disciplinary perspectives, fostering broad transferable skills and integrated, engaged learning that position students to create and participate meaningfully and ethically in our interconnected and interdependent world.
The GE program consists of 48-units taken as coursework across five distribution areas A-E; this program is overseen by the GE Subcommittee. The Seawolf Experience consists of overlay coursework some of which is CSU-wide and some of which is SSU-specific. Overlay courses are those that may also count towards a student’s GE requirements, major, minor, or elective units according to specifications outlined in the GE Curriculum. Overlay courses that meet American Institution and CSU graduation writing requirements and SSU-specific overlays in sustainability and global awareness are overseen by the Overlay Subcommittee. The Critical Race Studies overlay may transition to the GE program depending on implementation of AB 1460.
