Students complete the university's Kent Core and diversity course requirements. Additional courses must be completed in the College General Requirements. Students should consult the College Office if they have questions concerning the applicability of specific coursework to the General Requirements. None of the courses listed as part of the College’s General Requirements may be taken pass/fail.
For the purposes of the General Requirements, students’ major departments are defined as the departments that house the major, field of concentration or interdisciplinary program. For students in double major and dual degree programs, the restrictions on the applicability of major coursework toward the General Requirements are applied to only one of their majors (generally the primary major).
Foreign Language (8-10 credit hours)*
Elementary I and II of the same language
* All students with prior foreign language experience should take the foreign language placement test to determine the appropriate level at which to start. Some students may begin their university foreign language experience beyond the Elementary I level and will complete the requirement with fewer credit hours and fewer courses. This may be accomplished by: (1) passing a course beyond the Elementary I through Intermediate II level or (2) receiving credit through Credit by Exam (CBE), the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), the Advanced Placement (AP) exam or credit through the International Baccalaureate (IB) program; or (3) being designated a "native speaker" of a non-English language (consult with the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office for additional Information) . When students complete the requirement with fewer than 8-10 credit hours and four courses, they will complete the remaining hours with general electives.
