This component builds a foundation in certain skills that can be further developed in major courses and in Tier One and Tier Two General Education courses. Foundations include a course in mathematics (the character of which will vary with the major), courses in composition, fourth-semester skill level in a second language for all students in B.A. degree programs, and second-semester skill level in a second language for all students in non-B.A. degree programs:

Other composition/writing requirements include the Upper-Division Writing Proficiency Examination (UDWPE) and a Writing Emphasis Course.

For specific requirements, visit the links above and your major/degree requirements:  Academic Program Requirements Report (APRR).
