General Education courses

(Required of all students)

There are a variety of ways of meeting General Education requirements of the university, including the high-quality Interdisciplinary General Education (IGE) Program. For the best advice, see the College of Business Advising Office in Building 6. The comments below pertain to recent curriculum sheets.

In the standard GE plan, students select courses in five curriculum areas from among those listed each quarter in the Schedule of Classes. Most of these courses also can be taken at or transferred from community colleges.

Cal Poly Pomona requires 12 units of upper-division GE coursework. Each of these requirements is labeled a “synthesis” course since the goal is to integrate domains of knowledge across traditional lines of academic specialization.

Support courses

If any of these courses are used for General Education, then electives will be increased by 4 units per course up to the unit maximum of 8.

  • EC 201 (4) - Principles of Economics
  • EC 202 (4) - Principles of Economics
  • STA 120 (4) - Statistics with Applications

Career emphasis programs

One career emphasis program selected with approval of advisor 32 units

There are five alternative career emphasis programs in the major. Each program involves a minimum of four required courses supplemented by optional upper-division courses and career-related electives that may include lower-division work such as those acquired in developing computer proficiency.
