This systematic literature review is to find and showcase studies that detail the design of student-centered in-class undergraduate courses that target the development of generic skills in a discipline-specific context. Five studies met the inclusion criteria and were among the 25-year search span. A summary of the selected studies and their findings are presented, alongside an examination of the effectiveness of the various course designs and how generic skills development has been incorporated across different academic disciplines. Challenges and limitations among both selected studies and situation of generic skills development in higher education will also be discussed.
