Journal of General Education: A Curricular Commons of the Humanities and Sciences is devoted to the ideas and ideals of scholarship that enlighten the understanding of curriculum that reaches beyond disciplinary and professional concentrations to provide an undergraduate educational commons. The journal’s research, essays, forums and reviews engage academic communities and others in deliberations about general education experiments and innovation, as well as considerations of general education assessment, history, philosophy and theoretical perspective.

Journal of General Education: A Curricular Commons of the Humanities and Sciences will distinguish itself as a journal focused not on a scholarship of general interest to those engaged in undergraduate education writ large, but as a scholarly community interested in general education as a distinctive cornerstone of the arts of liberty  and as a conservator of enlightened engagement.
