General Education Requirements

    NO

    See Note

    No credit given for Composition because students may test out of the "Composition I" requirement through SAT scores, and the "Writing Intensive" component of the "General Education Writing Requirement" may be satisfied by courses offered in a range of disciplines that do not focus primarily on expository writing instruction.

  • 2. Literature

    NO
  • 3. Foreign Language

    NO

    No credit given for Foreign Language because the requirement only applies to select degree programs and may be fulfilled with elementary-level study.

  • 4. U.S. Government or History

    NO
  • 5. Economics

    NO
  • 6. Mathematics

    NO

    See Note
