Graduating well-rounded students at the bachelor's degree level has been the goal of colleges and universities for decades. The thinking has been that all students should take a general education core of courses to give them a broad perspective of the sciences, humanities, arts, and social sciences, etc. Typical general education models have requirements for a certain number of credits in each of these fields, intended to give the students the broad understandings needed. In practice, however, students could become very narrowly focused in these models. For example, in the humanities, students could choose all of their credits from one area such as music or history.
