Welcome to IGE! We hope to have you as a member of the IGE Learning Community! Since 1983, IGE has been at the national forefront of providing students the choice to have an integrated General Education experience. With student-centered, discussion and project based learning in every class, rather than traditional lecture-test learning, IGE encourages students to become active participants in the production of their own knowledge while gaining 32 credits of their written communication, humanities, social science, and lifelong learning lower division GEs over eight quarters. Small classes, three field trips a quarter (Arts Events), no tests, some team taught classes, and a close working relationship with like-minded fellow students from multiple majors are just a part of what makes IGE unique at Cal Poly Pomona. I am always happy to share the many exciting ways IGE can become a part of your meaningful educational experience at this amazing university!Click here to visit the IGE Department
The Liberal Studies or liberal arts degree is not only one of the oldest university degrees but also the extremely relevant for 21st century living. To be an educated and effective person today, one must be able to understand knowledge and ideas across the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences to solve local and global issues. Whether in the workplace or in one's community, individuals need to identify and discern which ideas, arguments and proposals have merit or realistic possibilities, which requires clear, deliberative and critical thinking.
