Know Your General Education/Core Requirements

September 30, 2011

Academics, Advising, Classes, Tips

So whether you’re in SEBS, Mason Gross, going for pharmacy, etc, you’re gonna have certain liberal arts requirements as well as classes for your major/minor. They’re different for every school. I remember one of the first days after move-in, every school I think had a general advising day for first-year students. I was still in SEBS so I was sitting in the middle of about 45 other prospective exercise science majors while our “advisor” talked about the program. It will be one of the most annoying things doing that when you know you’re gonna be transferring out of SEBS immediately. All of 1st semester, I was on google, emailing SAS advisors looking for SAS’s general education requirements. I’m glad I found it because that and the psychology major checklist put me on the right track when I went to pick my 2nd semester classes. So whether you don’t plan on transferring schools or you do, make sure you know what your liberal arts requirements are for the school you’re in. To make it a little easier, here are SEBS and SAS’s general requirements:

SEBS
-1 life science course
-6 credits (2 classes-ish) in humanities/the arts
-6 credits (2 classes) in multicultural/international studies
-9 credits (3 classes) in human behavior, political processes, and economic systems
-6 credits (2 classes) in oral/written communication (expos counts as 1 class)

SAS
**They changed/added some new requirements for first-year students as of Fall 2011 (THIS DOESN’T APPLY TO STUDENTS WHO ENTERED BEFORE 2011) It’s basically the same thing, except they’re grouped into 3 areas: 21st Century Challenges, Areas of Inquiry, and Cognitive Skills/Processes. (BTW, if you’re enrolled in a “signature course” it uses multiple requirements)**
-2 courses in 21st Century Challenges (basically like a diversity/global awareness)
-2 courses in natural sciences
-2 courses in social/historical analysis
-2 courses in arts and humanities (which is broken down into human experience, arts/literature, human languages, and critical creative expression)
-2 courses in writing/communication (expos counts as one)
-2 courses in quantitative/formal reasoning
-1 course in information technology/research

^ this has SAS’s general requirements. It’s not updated yet to the information I gave you but that’s generally everything besides IT/research classes and others.

I know both Pharmacy and Engineering have humanities that they have to take, nursing has quite a few gen ed. electives that can be taken, and business I’m not sure about. Mason Gross I believe has a few requirements also.

To sum it up: Yeah, there’s not much you can do right NOW, but once you get your schedules, try to research what they count for so you know what requirements you’ll have completed.
