General Education and Foundations
All degree-seeking, undergraduate students must satisfy the UA's General Education and Foundations requirements.
The University-Wide General Education program provides breadth of knowledge as a balance and complement to the depth provided by the major. See the General Education Curriculum in the 2004-05 General Catalog for the complete structure.
General Education policies specific to transfer students:
Foundation course requirements vary depending upon which program and which catalog you are following. A list of foundation courses specific to your program, with links to the Schedule of Classes, is available via your Student Academic Progress Report (SAPR) in Student Link.
Foundations include courses in English composition, a course in mathematics (the character of which will vary with the major), 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. 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.
Your Specific Requirements:
To see the requirements specific to your academic program, consult your Major/Degree Requirements (APRR) and your Student Academic Progress Report (SAPR) in Student Link. Direct questions to your academic advisor.
