### GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

All bachelor’s degree programs include liberal education (LEP) and writing (W) course requirements. Detailed information on these requirements is published in this section of the catalog: https://catalog.southernct.edu/undergraduate/general-information/lep.html.

Writing courses are not additional course requirements, course sections that meet this requirement are designated with a ‘W’ on the class schedule. Courses in the major and/or cognate may also be used to satisfy LEP requirements where noted below (*).
