In our rapidly changing technologically-driven world students from post-secondary institutions across the country are emerging better prepared to challenge the world on new terms – and Coppin students are among them. These new college-educated citizens are no longer interested in why traditional systems failed to solve problems of their parents' generation. Rather, they are more interested in technologically interrogating established norms and best practices that claim to meet the needs of their generation.
Thus, students who enter Coppin State University should expect to exit as persons who have been transformed by the rigors imbedded in oral and written communication, analytical reasoning, and the ever changing demands associated with information literacy. Students who enter Coppin State University should also expect to be held to the academic standards that will train them to engage in reflective practices while they learn to recognize the needs of their communities and their families.
Designed to open new pathways to life as educated citizens of the world the GER 40s – completed by the end of the second year of matriculation provide: a foundational base from which students launch their transformation from student to life-long learner and continue their preparation with a major in the School of Arts & Sciences, the College of Business, the School of Nursing, the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, and the School of Education under the guidance of an international cadre of faculty, an international student body, and a caring, supportive staff.
