A university education truly worth the name must do more than prepare students for a job or a career. It must broaden their understanding ofthe world, of themselves, of their role in society, and of the ideals and aspirations which have motivated human thought and action throughout the ages. It must help individuals use their acquired knowledge to grow in maturity as they take responsibility for their lives by establishing their own individual goals and developing the habit of lite-long learning. Because the University of Kentucky takes all of these responsibilities seriously and because it sees the value of a liberal education for all citizens of the Commonwealth, it has recently revised the core of academic requirements which will become part of every undergraduate’s program. The requirements are called University Studies, and they involve instruction in mathematics and foreign language as well as written and oral communication. University Studies also provides exposure to the major areas of human inquiry, an introduction to cross-disciplinary education, and experience with non-Western ways of thinking. The University views these requirements as a major contribution to the preparation for both a career and a rich and fulfilling personal life. Indeed, it sees liberal arts education and professional training not as opposites but as mutually supportive dimensions of learning. The broad goals of University Studies make for mature, open, flexible individuals who can adapt to changing situations, learn new skills, and meet unforeseen challenges in their careers. At the same time, University Studies will help students to develop their own sense of values, to pursue their own goals, and to contribute to the political, moral, social, and cultural enrichment of society. The University Studies program is required of all freshmen and is a valuable option for other undergraduates at the University. Within each of the five areas of study, a wide variety of offerings may be taken to fulfill the requirements. Students are encouraged to work closely with their advisers in selecting courses which are appropriate for their own needs and aspirations. ` Note: A course taken to satlsfy a requirement In one area of Unlverslty Studies cannot be used to satisfy a requirement In another except that a) a slngle calculus course will satisfy the mathematics component ln both I-A and II-A; and b) courses approved as Clustered Courses may be used to satisfy both the Cross·DIscIpllnary and one Disciplinary requirement.
