A variant permits colleges to offer four-credit courses to satisfy the math or science areas, subject to certain provisions.
The second component of the 30-credit structure, the 18-credit “Flexible Core,” requires students to complete six three-credit liberal arts and sciences courses, with at least one course selected from five areas and no more than two courses in any discipline or interdisciplinary field. The five areas are: World Cultures and Global Issues, U.S. Experience in its Diversity, Creative Expression, Individual and Society, and Scientific World.
