General Education Requirements

  • 1. Composition


    See Note

    No credit given for Composition because only students who do not test out of the "Composition" course of the "Competency 1 - Communication" requirement through SAT scores must take an expository writing course.

  • 2. Literature


    See Note

    No credit given for Literature because students who test out of the "Composition and Literature" course of the "Competency 1 - Communication" requirement may satisfy the requirement with courses that are not literature surveys.

  • 3. Foreign Language

  • 4. U.S. Government or History


    See Note

    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 second section of the "Sense of History and Effective Citizenship" requirement, and the qualifying courses for the first section of the requirement are Western civilization courses rather than U.S. government or history surveys.
