Requirements for All Baccalaureate Degrees

Effective for students who enter IU Southeast in Fall 2013, and after

The following describes the general education requirements for all IU Southeast baccalaureate degrees for students who enter the university in the Fall, 2013, and after. However, students who entered the university prior to Fall 2013, have the option to use the requirements below, with the approval of their academic advisor. Care should be taken to document approval for students who change to the new requirements.

The list of approved courses from which students must choose for each requirement is the list of courses for that requirement found under "Approved General Education Courses."

  1. Written Communication
    Students are required to take ENG-W 131 Elementary Composition. (Honors program students may take HON-H 103 to meet this requirement.) Students are also required to take one course, selected on the basis of their major, from the list of second-level approved courses. Students should consult with their advisor to determine which second course is appropriate for their intended major.
  2. Oral Communication
    Students are required to take SPCH-S 121 Public Speaking. (Honors program students may take HON-H 104 to meet this requirement.)
  3. Quantitative Reasoning
    Students are required to choose one course from the list of approved courses.
  4. Reasoning about Ethical Questions or Diversity
    Students are required to take one course from the list of approved courses.

The five hours are generally met by completing a course with a built in laboratory component (i.e. BIOL-L 100) OR by enrolling in a combination of lecture and laboratory courses (i.e. CHEM-C 100 and CHEM-C 121).
    3. Students are required to take one course from different disciplines from the list of approved courses in the Social and Behavioral Sciences.
