General Studies and University courses are designed to help orient students to the university, to expose students to a variety of perspectives and to equip them with critical reading, thinking, and evaluative skills that will help them grapple with the constant change and complex problems that characterize contemporary life. At Salve Regina University they include a variety of courses that transcend or integrate the usual discipline-based courses. Many are open to or required of all students, regardless of major specialization; others are required of students engaged in specialized work with other students such as new student mentors or resident advisors. Required General Studies courses include the First Year Transitions (FYT 100 ) and Transfer Transitions (FYT 200 ) courses and the University Seminars that new students choose when entering Salve Regina and capstone courses in the Core Curriculum.
The Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies program is an interdisciplinary minor that approaches the human experience by considering the impact of gender and sexualities.
