Southern Utah University (SUU) is hoping to save its students time and tuition spent on general education requirements through a specialized new program called Jumpstart GE.

Jumpstart GE will launch this fall with an initial cohort of 50 freshmen, who will register for the same 17 credits per semester, cutting general education requirements down to one year instead of the typical two. The program will include standard courses like math, English and psychology, but will be taught by eight professors who have worked to create a collaborative curriculum that incorporates all subjects.

SUU hopes the program will not only reduce the time and money spent on general education courses, but also help those with undecided majors see the integrated coursework as an introduction to different fields that they might decide to study full time.
