Rock Integrated Studies 2 Program

The Rock Integrated Studies 2 Program ("Rock Studies 2") at Slippery Rock University is the general education requirement for all undergraduate students in all majors at the University.  

The purpose of a general education program is to introduce you to a broad range of knowledge in addition to the material you learn in your major.  It includes 42 credits of the required 120 minimum credits required for graduation.  There are three parts to the Rock Studies 2 program:  

  • The Rock 
  • Integrated Inquiry 
  • Thematic Threads 

Educating students to be life-long learners is part of the mission of Slippery Rock University.  

The Rock Studies 2 Program is unique as a general education program because it provides thematic interdisciplinary connections to guide you toward thinking critically and creatively, and to use knowledge from diverse places as they confront and analyze issues and problems. 

The program under which you enter is the program that you will follow through to graduation. Students may not transfer between programs.
