3 hrs. Written communication (English) from the approved list of general education courses.
3 hrs. Oral communication from the approved list of general courses OR pass an oral communication proficiency exam (this option IS NOT available if the degree plan specifies one of the approved oral communication courses.)
3 hrs. Computational skills (Math) from the approved list of general education courses
3 hrs. Social/Behavioral Science requirement
3 hrs. The remaining three hours may be satisfied with any additional courses from the approved list of general education courses. Individual departments will specify individual courses or a listing of courses from which the student may choose to meet the remaining requirements.
