Liberal Education Program
48 Credits Required
Students must complete a comprehensive three-tiered Liberal Education Program (LEP). View all requirements of the tiers on the Liberal Education Program. Any credits over 48 are counted toward free electives.

Tier 1 - Quantitative Reasoning:
MAT 122 - Precalculus
Tier 2 - Mind and Body:
PSY 100 – Introduction to Psychology
Tier 2 – Natural World I: Physical Realm:
CHE 120 – General Chemistry I
Tier 3 – Capstone:
EXS 497 – Human Performance Practicum
Writing Requirements (“W-Courses”)
Three W-courses are required. These may not be taken until after a student has passed ENG 112 — Writing Arguments. W-courses may count toward LEP, major, or cognate requirements, as well as free electives. Course sections that meet this requirement are designated by section numbers ending in “W”.
