General Education Group and Competency Requirements
The college has established General Education Requirements, requiring a total of 36 credits of General Education coursework to be satisfied by all students. These requirements are listed below. For Engineering majors, the basic physical science requirement and the mathematics requirement are satisfied by the Foundation courses.

 

AREA 1 COMMUNICATIONS
Take ENC 1101 and ENC 1102 and either SPC 1024 or SPC 1608 9 credit hours

AREA 2 HUMANITIES
Take two courses, for a total of 6 credit hours 6 credit hours

AREA 3 SOCIAL/BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES 6 credit hours
One Social Science course and one Behavioral Science course

AREA 4 SCIENCE 9 credit hours
The Physical Science requirement is satisfied by successful completion of the Foundation courses. Take one Biological Science, for 3 credit hours, and one Laboratory, for 1 credit hour, and one Wellness course, for 2 credit hours.

AREA 5 MATHEMATICS 6 credit hours
The mathematics requirement is satisfied by successful completion of the Foundation courses.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS
W = Writing credit course. Students must take ENC 1101; ENC 1102; and two additional writing credit courses, 6 credits, to graduate.
I = International/Intercultural Course. Students must take 3 credits of international/intercultural coursework to graduate.

NOTES
Any student who successful completes a mathematics or natural science course for which one of the General Education Core Course options is an immediate prerequisite shall be considered to have completed the mathematics or science core requirement.
(I) = this course counts toward the international/intercultural requirement in the AA and baccalaureate degrees.
(W) = this course counts toward the writing requirement in the AA and baccalaureate degrees.

*All course requirements and offerings are subject to change
