Area Requirements can be fulfilled by taking courses or by engaging in other approved activities. There are five (5) Area Requirements Quantitative Reasoning, Cultural Diversity, Writing Intensive, Experiential Learning and Academic Convocation.
Three Area Requirements - Quantitative Reasoning, Cultural Diversity, and Writing Intensive - are fulfilled by taking courses designated for that Area Requirement.
One Area Requirement - Experiential Learning - can be fulfilled either by a course or by completing an approved activity.
Academic Convocation is fulfilled through the First Year Experience course.
Area Requirement courses can simultaneously be used to meet any other academic requirement, including major or minor requirements, open electives, or any of the Core Course Requirements.
A course designated as fulfilling multiple Area Requirements fulfills them simultaneously. For example, if a student takes a single course designated as fulfilling the Experiential Learning and Writing Intensive requirements, then the student has fulfilled both of those requirements with that course.
