English Rhetoric Requirement
Foreign Language Requirement
Students must demonstrate competency in a foreign language by completing the elementary level of the same foreign language. The foreign language requirement for students enrolled in the B.S. degree may be completed with 0 to 2 courses (0-8 cr. hrs.) in the same foreign language. The number of courses and credit hours to be completed may vary, depending on the student’s proficiency and level of placement.
- Students who wish to study Arabic (ARBC), Chinese (CHNS), French (FREN), German (GRMN), Classical Greek (GREK), Italian (ITAL), Latin (LATN) or Spanish (SPAN) as a new language may complete the requirement with two courses of the same language (Elementary Language 1001 and 1002).
- Students who have previously studied a foreign language in high school should complete the Foreign Language Placement Exam or the Placement Exam Survey. On the basis of their achieved score and/or survey results, they will be placed in the appropriate language level.
- Students who are placed in SPAN 1003 Intensive Elementary Spanish may complete the requirement with one course (SPAN 1003).
- Students, who are placed at the intermediate language level (2001 or 2003) or at a higher level, are exempt from the foreign language requirement.
Note: The University Core of Common Studies does not have a foreign language requirement. However, there is a Diverse Cultures requirement (3 cr. hrs.).Back To Top
Histories of Cultures and Societies Requirement
Students are required to complete one course (3 cr. hrs.) in the area of Histories of Cultures and Societies. Students must select either HIST 1001 Growth of Western Civilization to 1715 or HIST 1002 Growth of Western Civilization since 1715.
Note: The completion of either of HIST 1001 Growth of Western Civilization to 1715 or HIST 1002 Growth of Western Civilization since 1715 fulfills the Histories of Cultures and Societies requirement (3 cr. hrs.) in the University Core of Common Studies.
Individual and Social Behavior Requirement
Additional History or Individual and Social Behavior Requirement
Students in the B.S. degree program have an additional course requirement (3 cr. hrs.) in History or Individual and Social Behavior. Students must complete either a second History (HIST) course, or a second course Individual and Social Behavior.

Mathematical Reasoning Requirement
Students must complete two courses (6 cr. hrs.) in the area of Mathematical Reasoning. The requirement may be completed by taking courses in Mathematics (MATH), Computer Science (COSC), or statistics course. Only one statistics course (MATH 1700 Modern Elementary Statistics, MATH 4710 Mathematical Statistics, MATH 4720 Statistical Methods, MATH 4740 Biostatistical Methods and Models, PSYC 2001 Psychological Measurements and Statistics, or SOCI 2060 Social Statistics) may be used to fulfill this requirement. The general background courses of MATH 1100 College Algebra and MATH 1101 Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry do not fulfill the Mathematical Reasoning requirement.
