General Education Requirements

  • 1. Composition

  • 2. Literature


    See Note

    No credit given for Literature because it is one of four areas of the "Humanities" requirement, from which students need only select two.

  • 3. Foreign Language

  • 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 "Historical Perspective" requirement.

  • 5. Economics

  • 6. Mathematics


    See Note

    No credit given for Mathematics because both the "Mathematics, Formal Reasoning, Technology" requirement of the "Global Miami Plan" and the "Formal Reasoning" requirement in the College of Arts and Sciences may be satisfied by courses with little college-level math content.

  • 7. Science

  • General Education Assessment
