University of Central Arkansas cuts core educational requirements

A change in general education core requirements at the University of Central Arkansas will mean fewer core hours and more effective education for freshmen this coming fall, Provost Steve Runge said.

"It's just a really exciting time for us," Runge said. "It's an exciting time to show students and the state we are committed to quality education. We're not going to ever just go through the motions."

The change -- a big deal at UCA -- will mean UCA's core shrank from 47 credit hours required to 38, Runge said.
