Do the Fall 2013 general education changes affect me?

Take a look at your transcript on Banweb.  If you have credit for all of the old UN classes:

  • UN 1001 (Perspectives)
  • UN 1002 (World Cultures) or UN 1003 (World Cultures Activities)
  • UN 2001 (Composition or Revisions)
  • UN 2002 (Institutions)

then the Fall 2013 general education changes do not affect you.

If you have not yet taken all of the UN classes listed above by Fall 2013 then, yes, the Fall 2013 general education changes do affect you.

If you don’t have credit for:

  • UN 1001 (Perspectives), you will instead take an elective course from the Humanities and Fine Arts (HUFA) elective list (see below).
  • UN 1002 (World Cultures), you will instead take UN 1025 (Global Issues) or a 3000-level language course, and one credit of free elective.
  • UN 2001 (Composition), you will instead take UN 1015 (Composition).
  • UN 2002 (Institutions), you will instead take an elective course from the Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) elective list (see below).

The courses that are on the HUFA elective list are:

  • FA 2330 Art Appreciation
  • FA 2520 Music Appreciation
  • FA 2820 Theater Appreciation
  • HU 2130 Introduction to Rhetoric
  • HU 2501 American Experience in Literature
  • HU 2538 British Experience in Literature
  • HU 2700 Introduction to Philosophy
  • HU 2820 Communication and Culture
  • HU 2910 Language and Mind

The courses that are on the SBS elective list are:

  • EC 2001 Principles of Economics
  • PSY 2000 Principles of Psychology
  • SS 2100 World Peoples and Environments
  • SS 2200 Prehistory and Archaeology
  • SS 2400 Introduction to Human Geography
  • SS 2500 United States History to 1871
  • SS 2501 United States History Since 1877
  • SS 2502 European History to 1650
  • SS 2503 European History Since 1650
  • SS 2504 World History to 1500
  • SS 2505 World History Since 1500
  • SS 2600 American Government and Politics
  • SS 2700 Introduction to Sociology

If you need a class from one of these lists, be sure to take a look at your transcript on Banweb.  You might already have one of these classes from AP or transfer credit.  If that is the case then we can use it towards the UN course requirement instead of the HASS requirement.  You can choose which requirement you would like the class to count towards, but it cannot be used towards both.
