Liberal Arts (General Education Requirements)


Science Requirement: students are required to demonstrate competence in a math or science area as a degree requirement. They can do so in several ways: successful completion of a math or science course offered by the Liberal Arts department; successful completion of a math or science course taken at a consortium college, transfer credit of a math or science course, or successful completion of an approved science or math course offered by other departments. In this last example, demonstrated competency does not reduce the number of credits required in the liberal arts department.

These college-wide liberal arts requirements apply to all majors except History of Art and Art Education. See those majors’ pages for their specific liberal arts requirements.
