General Education Requirements

  • 1. Composition

  • 2. Literature

  • 3. Foreign Language

  • 4. U.S. Government or History


    See Note

    No credit given for U.S. Government or History because the "Social Science" requirement that stipulates students take "at least one course from Economics or Political Science" can be met with a political science course that is narrow in scope.

  • 5. Economics


    See Note

    No credit given for Economics because economics and political science are folded together within the "Social Science" requirement, thus students may choose one or the other.

  • 6. Mathematics

  • 7. Science
