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 External Link 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.

Foundations Include:

Other English composition and writing requirements include the Mid-Career Writing Assessment (MCWA) and a Writing Emphasis Course.
