  • 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 a survey course in American government or history is an option, but not required, to fulfill the "IDS2020 - Trajectories of Human History" requirement.

  • 5. Economics

  • 6. Mathematics


    See Note

    No credit given for Mathematics because students may test out of the "Mathematical Competency" requirement through SAT or ACT scores. Moreover, only students who do not receive a satisfactory score on a university-administered examination must take a math course.

    See Note

    No credit given for Natural or Physical Science because the "IDS2030 - Science and Society" requirement may be satisfied by a course with little science content.
