Curricular Mapping of GE programme

GE courses should be designed to achieve the Programme Intended Learning Outcomes (PILOs) with different levels of depth and breadth. Every GE course should significantly address PILO 1 and PILO 10. Each area must also address those outcomes that have been specified as “Required” in the curricular mapping of GE programme approved by the City University’s Senate (see the table below). Each distributional area should satisfy at least one of the stated outcomes from PILOs 5 to 9.
