The Arts & Sciences General Degree Requirements-Humanities

The requirement on the College of Arts & Sciences General Degree Requirements states:

"HUMANITIES:" Then follows a list of courses which may be viewed on the most recent Arts & Sciences General Degree Requirements sheet.

NOTE: The course subject abbreviations (course prefixes) are explained in the Reader's Guide to the catalog. (Instead of clicking on the picture of the catalog choose the link in red on the left that say "Course Descriptions". The abbreviations are decoded in the column on the right.)

"Underlined courses are cross-listed: Cannot receive credit for both courses."

BA: 6 hours required.

Note that since I am directing my comments only to those students completing the Bachelor of Arts degree, I am not including notes that relate to those completing the Bachelor of Science degree.

Pertinent information:

  • The sophomore-level English classes in this group cannot apply to both the Arts & Sciences English AND the Humanities requirements.
  • Beginning Dec 1, 2009, the College of Arts & Sciences has changed the English General Degree Requirement, for English majors and minors in the College of Arts & Sciences ONLY, to allow use of certain 3000-level English courses. That will then allow, for these students ONLY, the use of approved sophomore level English courses to fulfill the Humanities requirement.That would mean that if the two sophomore level English courses that you took/take for your English major meet the Humanities requirement, they can be used for that requirement once you have completed two at the 3000-level that meet the English General Degree Requirement.
  • Philosophy majors need not worry about this requirement since several of their required courses satisfy this requirement.
  • Courses marked with an asterisk also satisfy the Multicultural requirement.
  • The language courses in this group (FREN, GERM, etc.) are usually taught in English and cover cultural topics in areas in which these languages are spoken.
