In referring to Table II, one should not add the credit hour requirements in each category to arrive at the total for the degree. The curriculum of the College was adopted to give students greater flexibility in the selection of courses. Therefore, it is possible to satisfy major requirements, cognate requirements, and general education requirements with the same course. For example, if a major program required a course in statistics as a cognate, and if the statistics course is approved for General Education credit, then the student can satisfy the requirement for that cognate in the major and at the same time a General Education requirement. Liberal arts courses are all courses in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; the School of Communication, Media and the Arts; the Department of Health Promotion and Wellness; and any course approved for General Education credit (including writing plan courses).
