General Education

NDSU requires that all students complete a selection of courses as part of their General Education.  HNES intends to offer the following listed courses in Spring and Fall semester. While a course may be advertised for a particular semester, the number of enrollments in a course will determine if the advertised course is actually offered. It is the responsibility of all students to check if the listed courses will be offered in the semester required.
