General Education Requirements
3. Foreign LanguageNO
No credit given for Foreign Language because language study is only an option in the "Foreign Language/Literature" requirement.
4. U.S. Government or HistoryNO
No credit given for U.S. Government or History because the qualifying courses for the first part of the "Culture and Humaities" requirement are world history courses rather than U.S. government or history surveys, and a survey course in American government or history is an option, but not required, to fulfill the second part of the requirement.
No credit given for Economics because a course in economics is an option, but not required, to fulfill the "Social and Behavioral Sciences" requirement.
Charleston Southern University should be commended for their strong requirements in History, Christian Studies, and Fine Arts.
