General Education Courses

The general education requirement is intended to provide breadth in the baccalaureate degree program to foster student learning beyond a single, narrow discipline or field. There are two systems, Goal and Domain.

Courses offered by the World Languages Deparmtnet appropriate for the Gen. Ed. requirements in the Goal system are classified as follows:

  • Goal 3. Language: A basic knowledge of a language other than one’s own, including its cultural context together with at least a minimal ability to read, write, speak, and comprehend.
  • Goal 11. Non-Western Studies: An understanding and appreciation of nonwestern
    cultures past and present.

Starting Fall 2013, the new Domain system is implemented. Courses offered by the World Languages Deparmtnet appropriate for the Gen. Ed. requirements in the Domain system are classified as follows:

  • Domain I-C: The study of language in its cultural contexts
  • Domain III-C: The study of global systems and issues, ethical principles, and/or differences and commonalities among groups of people

Native speakers and heritage speakers of a foreign language

Native speakers and heritage speakers of a foreign language (Chinese, French, Portuguese, and Spanish) must not take a language course below their proficiency level to fulfill the Gen. Ed. language requirement. See the new language course requirement policy.
