Humanities/Social Sciences Elective Choices:

Our policy for H/SS electives:

1. Students must complete a total of 12 credits (4 courses) of Humanities/Social Sciences electives before they graduate.

2. Out of the 4 courses, no more than 2 of them can be 100 level courses. (i.e., all can be upper level)

3. RECOMMENDATION:  Out of the 4 courses, at least 2 of them in the same Subject area. (may help with minor completion, but NOT a requirement).

4. AP credits may be applied towards some electives.  For course equivalencies, please check HERE.

Every incoming first year student (excluding transfer students) should try to take one lower level humanities/social sciences elective during their first semester. This is NOT mandatory. If you do NOT wish to take an elective during the Fall, you can indicate this as a choice from the pull-down menu. If you wish to use your AP credits towards lower level humanities, you may choose to look for some 200 or 300 level courses to take, and write them in instead. You can look up course offerings for the fall using the online schedule of classes site: ONLINE SCHEDULE OF CLASSES. For help in navigating the Schedule of classes, click HERE.

If you would like to take a H/SS elective in the fall, please include your top 3 choices. Descriptions to most of the courses can be found HERE.  The list of all acceptable electives can be found HERE.
