H. Councill Trenholm State Community College’s General Education program provides the courses necessary for the completion of the associate of arts and associate of science degrees designed for transfer. General Education also supports all other programs at Trenholm State by providing students with the critical values and range of knowledge and skills in the arts and sciences. Trenholm State graduates will demonstrate competency in basic mathematics, writing, oral communication, and basic computer usage. Students also discover certain basic principles, concepts, and methodologies both unique to and shared by the various disciplines.

In addition, students learn the modes of inquiry of the major disciplines, and General Education leads them through learning activities in experiencing and appreciating the creative arts, in understanding multicultural and diverse perspectives, and in achieving insights gained through experiences involving ethical and social issues. Through these learning experiences, students develop self-understanding and become lifelong learners.
