Stanford University says, "The General Education Requirements are an integral part of undergraduate education at Stanford. Their purpose is to introduce students to the intellectual life of the University, to foreground important questions, and to illustrate how they may be approached from multiple perspectives. They are intended to develop a broad set of essential intellectual and social competencies of enduring value no matter what field a student eventually pursues." [Source]

General Education Requirements
3. Foreign LanguageNO
No credit given for Foreign Language because students may fulfill the requirement with elementary-level study.
4. U.S. Government or HistoryNO
No credit given for Mathematics because the "Formal Reasoning" and the "Applied Quantitative Reasoning" requirements may be satisfied by courses with little college-level math content.
Notably, Stanford's optional "Structured Liberal Education" program offers freshman an integrated curriculum combining literature, philosophy, and the arts.
