GC Journeys: A Liberal Arts Education Redefined

What is a liberal arts education? A simplistic explanation is – a liberal arts education is a “general, overall education.” But it’s much broader and deeper than that. Far beyond simply memorizing facts and philosophies, a liberal arts curriculum teaches you how to critically assess the world around you. There is no more valuable skill than to be able to gather facts and opinions, process them, and make your own educated decisions. It’s a skill that gives you an advantage at any job, enhances your relationships, and leaves you personally fulfilled throughout your lifetime.

The GC Journeys Program will transform your way of thinking and experiencing college. By participating in five inside and outside the classroom transformative experiences during your time at Georgia College & State University, you will step outside of your usual surroundings, gain authentic experiences, solve problems, become a leader, participate in real-world settings and put ideas into action.
