General Education Courses

Breadth Course List for General Education

The courses listed below are approved as counting toward the breadth program requirement in each of the nine areas of the program. Students who satisfy II-C with one-unit dance or applied music courses must complete three courses in the same discipline. Although not always listed here, some "special topics'' courses taught during a particular term may also be approved for general education. Some professional schools on campus have more restrictive requirements under which only some of the courses listed in each area count for students pursuing those professional programs. The listing of general education courses being taught during a particular term can be found using the search for class by attribute function on Inside Pacific. Catalog year determines degree requirements; however, general education (GE) courses and transfer course articulations are subject to change. It is the responsibility of the student to be informed of any GE or transfer course articulation changes.
