Guidelines for electives in advanced/multi-area coursework in the general education program

  The advanced / multi-area courses are divided into three major areas—humanities (arts; philosophy and religious studies; cultural and historical studies); social sciences (law and politics; sociology, psychology, anthropology, education, and gender studies; management, informatics, and economics); and natural sciences (basic science; applied science; science, technology, and society). Collectively, these courses make professional knowledge accessible, and are designed to incorporate basic skills for modern life. In order to broaden the scope of students’ areas of knowledge, as well as to achieve a balance between the humanities and science and engineering, the general education program suggests that students in science and engineering take at least two credits in social sciences and humanities in general education coursework, while students in humanities and social sciences, and in business administration, should take at least two credits, respectively, in general education natural science courses.
