How Do I...Find Pathways for General Education Requirements?

The general education curriculum (Pathways for General Education) is comprised of seven core learning concepts: these are the skills, knowledge, tools, and perspectives with which every student should engage before graduation. Credit hour requirements for each concept could be met either at Virginia Tech or with credits earned via transfer, Advanced Placement, or International Baccalaureate credit.

Some students might pursue a Pathways Minor or an Alternative Pathway as a means of completing a portion of the requirements. 

  1. Go to the Course Catalog for lists of course options within Pathways for General Education.
  2. Go to the Minors page for information on Pathways Minors.
