General Education Requirements

  • 1. Composition

    No credit given for Foreign Language because students may fulfill the requirement with elementary-level study.

  • 4. U.S. Government or History


    See Note

    No credit given for U.S. Government or History because a survey course in American government or history is an option, but not required, to fulfill the "Global Learning Domestic" requirement.

  • 5. Economics


    See Note

    No credit given for Economics because it is one of five areas of the "Social Sciences" requirement, from which students need only select two.

  • 6. Mathematics


    See Note

    No credit given for Mathematics because the "Mathematics and Natural Science" requirement may be satisfied by courses with little college-level math content.
