GenEd: Foundations Requirements
Foundations requirements include First-year Composition, Mathematics and Second Language. Foundation course requirements vary depending upon degree program and catalog year.
All bachelor's degrees have a composition requirement, and various options exist for students to satisfy that requirement.
Every undergraduate degree program requires satisfaction of the Mid-Career Writing Assessment (MCWA).
All majors require completion of at least one course to satisfy the mathematics requirement.
Students seeking a substitution based on disability should see their advisor to find out if their major accepts math substitutions.
Second language requirements vary depending on whether the degree is a B.A. on non-B.A. program.
Students may opt into a proficiency exam offered by the Department of Lingustics for languages not taught on campus, with the exception of those taught by the Critical Languages Program. Students will not receive any course credit for passing the exam, but their second language requirement will be waived if they pass the exam.
The Critical Languages Program was created in order to meet the need for instruction in less commonly taught languages which are not offered either by traditional departments or formats at UA.
Students seeking a substitution based on disability should see their advisor to find out if their major accepts second language substitutions.
