General Education Requirements

  • 1. Composition


    See Note

    No credit given for Composition because the "Writing Intensive" requirement may be satisfied by courses offered in a range of departments and by topic courses in a range of disciplines that do not focus primarily on expository writing instruction.

  • 2. Literature


    See Note

    No credit given for Literature because a survey course in literature is an option, but not required, to fulfill the "Writing Research" requirement.

  • 3. Foreign Language


    See Note

    No credit given for Foreign Language because students may satisfy the requirement with elementary-level study.

  • 4. U.S. Government or History
