COLLEGE BREADTH REQUIREMENTS:
These requirements apply to all College of Earth, Ocean & Environment Bachelor of Arts degrees. College breadth courses when combined with University breadth courses must represent at least two departments or appropriate instructional units in each category.
If the grade earned is sufficient, a course may be applied toward more than one requirement (e.g., breadth and major requirements), but the credits are counted only once toward the total credits for graduation. If all but one course in a group has been taken in one department or program, a course cross-listed with that program will not satisfy the distribution requirement.
