The College of General Studies (CGS) was established in 2007 to provide core courses in disciplines not covered by the other colleges. The College is responsible for developing in all KFUPM students the crucial knowledge, skills, attributes and values to be competitive in the market place and to realize their role as leaders in their communities. Through its programs and the courses offered, the College provides University students with the opportunities to expand their horizons and vision, reinforce their ethical and moral values, develop their communication skills and enhance their personal characteristics and positive behavior. The College is committed to having a major influence on KFUPM graduates by maintaining close contact with both students and academic departments, and by continuously assessing and developing its programs and courses to accommodate the changing needs and conditions required to accomplish its set objectives and goals.
