A Firm Foundation

In our rapidly-changing world, nothing is more important than learning how to learn. In our innovative Foundations and Core general education program, we help you build a firm foundation for your future by developing your capacity to master a wide range of skills and competencies. And in the process, you will gain qualities employers say they most need—the ability to communicate, solve problems, and adapt to changing expectations.

Program Requirements

Approximately 45 hours in courses covering skill development and a wide range of areas of inquiry.


With well over 100 courses qualifying for Core credit, you can shape your own unique pathway that fits your interests and supports your plans for the future.


Free individual tutoring is available in all courses, and group tutoring and study sessions help you form a great academic support network.


You’ll never be in a large lecture hall—all classes are small, with professors who will be there to help and guide you.


In an era where one rarely stays in the same job for their entire career, the well-rounded liberal arts education I received at Georgetown College gave me the ability to follow my passions wherever they led, allowing me to transition seamlessly from one career path to the next.
