General Education Courses for Majors

In addition to the approved lower and upper-division courses listed in the Catalog, the following courses also satisfy general education requirements.  However, enrollment is typically restricted to students in specific majors.  Students get appropriate GE credit for passing these courses even if they change out of the majors indicated below. 

Please refer to all requirements for your major to confirm the GE courses that are recommended for or required for students in your major and catalog term. There may be other courses not listed here, especially if they need to be taken in addition to other major courses in order to fully satisfy GE areas.
