"It was great to get in the classroom and get a sense for how classes will go.
My general education courses have really opened my eyes to all the different things you can do."
"I have always known that I wanted to become a teacher. I came to Liberty University with that goal in mind. It was not until I took Biology 102, a general education course at Liberty, that I realized I love science. Therefore, I have decided to pursue a degree in Elementary Education and have added a specialization in science.”
“The general education courses have been a good introduction to college and have helped me develop study habits for my major.
They have helped me narrow down what I want to do for my career.”
