Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania
Shippensburg University says, "Since men and women first began to discuss the nature and purpose of education, they have seen in it something more than the mere acquisition of specific knowledge or skills, important as these may be. This something they called a liberal or general education and the need for it has been based on the ideal that a breadth of knowledge is necessary for an individual to become an informed and literate member of society."

3. Foreign LanguageNO
No credit given for Foreign Language because the requirement only applies to select degree programs.

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 "Category D - Political, Economic, and Geographic Sciences" requirement.
No credit given for Economics because it is one of three areas of the "Category D - Political, Economic, and Geographic Sciences" requirement, from which students need only select two.
No credit given for Mathematics because students may test out of the "Mathematics Competency" requirement through SAT or ACT scores. Furthermore, the "Category A - Logic and Numbers for Rational Thinking" requirement may be satisfied by courses with little college-level mathematics content.
