General Education Requirements
3. Foreign LanguageYES
4. U.S. Government or HistoryNO
No credit given for U.S. Government or History because the qualifying courses for the "History" requirement are world history or Western civilization courses rather than U.S. government or history surveys, and a survey course in American government is an option, but not required, to fulfill the "Social Sciences" requirement.
