Welcome to the Department of General Education

We are helping students build a strong foundation in higher learning.

First-Year Writing

The First-Year Writing Program at the University of West Georgia encompasses all sections of ENGL 1101 and 1102. These two courses are required for all entering students (unless exempted by university-approved scores on college entrance exams). First-Year Writing faculty are committed to working with first-year students to help them develop the college-level writing and critical thinking skills that they need to be successful in all of their college courses.



First-Year Mathematics

First-Year Math encompasses Quantitative Skills &Reasoning (MATH-1001), College Algebra (MATH-1111), and
Precalculus (MATH-1113) as well as the corresponding lab and support sections.
