Earlham College says it "expects every student to develop broad, general skills and proficiencies across the whole spectrum of the curriculum: the Fine Arts, the Humanities, the Social Sciences and the Natural Sciences. In a world that is increasingly interconnected, diverse and complex, it does not suffice to be narrowly well educated." [Source]

    See Note

    No credit given for Foreign Language because students may fulfill the "Language" section of the "Perspectives on Diversity" requirement with elementary-level study.

    No credit given for U.S. Government or History because a survey course in American government or history is not required, to fulfill the "Social Sciences Division" requirement.
