General Education Requirements

  • 1. Composition

    No credit given for Composition because the qualifying courses for the "Inquiry Seminar" and "Writing-Intensive Courses in the Major" requirements are topic courses in a range of disciplines that do not focus primarily on expository writing instruction.

  • 2. Literature

  • 3. Foreign Language


    See Note

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

    No credit given for U.S. Government or History because survey courses in American government or history are options, but not required, to fulfill the "U.S. Pluralisms," "Vital Pasts," and "Individuals, Systems, and Societies" requirements.
