George Mason University’s Mason Core general education program ensures that students obtain a solid base of critical thinking skills on which to build the more specific knowledge of their major programs. There are three areas of the Mason Core: foundation requirements in oral and written communication, quantitative reasoning and information technology; exploration in literature, arts, natural sciences, western civilization, global understanding, and the social and behavioral sciences; and integration of knowledge with a synthesis course and two writing-intensive courses.
The program is overseen by a University Standing Committee of thirteen faculty members.
