This program, the Engaged Citizenship Curriculum (ECC), builds on the strengths of the traditional liberal arts approach to undergraduate education and adapts it to the needs of current students and future employers."

General Education Requirements
No credit given for Composition because both the "Simpson Colloquium" and "Written Communication" requirements may be satisfied by writing-intensive courses offered in a range of departments that do not focus primarily on expository writing instruction.
3. Foreign LanguageNO
No credit given for Foreign Language because students may choose between studying a foreign language or a foreign culture and students may fulfill the requirement with elementary-level study.
4. U.S. Government or HistoryNO
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 "Civic Engagement", "Diversity And Power in the U.S." and "Historical Perspectives in Western Culture" requirements.
No credit given for Mathematics because the "Quantitative Reasoning" requirement may be satisfied by courses with little college-level math content.
No credit given for Natural or Physical Science because the "Scientific Reasoning" requirement may be satisfied by courses with little science content.
