Additional Notes

General education courses are interchangeable; students may choose the general education course(s) they wish to take in any given semester based on preference, availability, and academic goals. Note: Students enrolled in, or hoping to enroll in, majors in the College of the Liberal Arts are expected to attend the University Park campus once they have earned a total of 60 credits. No more than 91 credits earned while enrolled at another Penn State College or at another institution may be applied toward degrees granted by the College of the Liberal Arts. A minimum of 24 of the credits related to the primary area of study stipulated under “requirements for the major” must be completed at University Park. (For example, History majors must complete 24 credits of "Hist" courses at University Park.) Senior or capstone courses required for the major must be completed at University Park.

GWS, GHA, GQ, GN, GA, GH, and GS are codes used to identify General Education requirements. US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements which overlap with General Education requirements. W/Y is the code used to designate courses that satisfy University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

WMNST major must take  3 credits that focus on non-Western women & 3 credits that focus on women of color in the United States.  Please see adviser for current list
