Essential Learning Outcome:
Breadth of Knowledge--gaining the perspectives of many disciplines
The Breadth of Knowledge requirement is designed to provide students with multiple perspectives regarding several different areas of knowledge and modes of inquiry outside of their major discipline. Students are required to fulfill these requirements from courses outside of their major department, with no more than two courses from a single discipline applied to the same criterion.
