The Minnesota General Education Transfer Curriculum is the result of a collaborative effort by all of the two- and four-year public colleges and universities in Minnesota to define a common philosophy toward general education. The goal of this effort is to help students transfer their work in general education. Completion of a defined transfer curriculum at one institution enables a student to receive credit for all lower-division general education upon admission to any other institution.
Students who complete the general education transfer curriculum are certified in 10 areas of competency by faculty at the sending institution. The Minnesota General Education Transfer Curriculum provides details about the competencies. The 10 areas of emphasis include Written and Oral Communication, Critical Thinking, Natural Sciences, Mathematical/Symbolic Systems, The Humanities (arts, literature and philosophy), Human Diversity, Global Perspectives, Ethical and Civic Responsibility, and People and the Environment. Completion of an AS degree requires courses from at least six of the 10 Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal Areas.
