Why take GenEds? Because our faculty ROCK!
Meet JMU’s award-winning ‘Professor D,’ Kim Duvall: “I love when they say, ‘This is the greatest course; I didn't know I could get this from a GenEd.’ For many students, this will be the only introduction they will have to the field of psychology. . . . Humans are fascinating!”
Meet Shanil Virani, director of the JMU planetarium and physics professor: “Why should GenEd students take these classes? To stoke their innate curiosity—[to know] they can have basic, fundamental questions about the universe, their role in it, but also a toolbox to answer their questions.”
