Nuclear Engineering General Education Requirements

Students are strongly encouraged to develop a coherent general education plan, and distribute their general education credits throughout their academic program. The collection of courses used to fulfill this requirement must meet all of the following conditions:

1. Students must select from the list of courses approved by the University Core Council to satisfy each of the six Foundational Learning Outcomes listed below. Some courses may have been approved to meet more than one of the Foundational Learning Outcomes, so fewer than six courses can be used to fulfill this condition. There is no minimum number of credit hours needed to satisfy each component of the College of Engineering General Education Program.

a. Written Communication (WC)

b. Oral Communication (OC)

c. Information Literacy (IL)

d. Human Cultures: Humanities (H)

e. Human Cultures: Behavior/Social Science (BSS)

f. Science, Technology, and Society (STS)

2. Students must take additional approved courses to reach the minimum requirement of 12 credit hours. Six credits must be from the Human Cultures: Humanities and 6 credits must be from the Human Cultures: Behavior/Social Sciences. Students must select the courses as follows:

    b. Six credits must be drawn from courses in the Humanities offered by the departments of English, Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Philosophy, and Visual and Performing Arts. In general, this relates to the following subject codes: AAS, AD, AGEC, AMST, ARAB, ASL, CHNS, CLCS, CMPL,ENGL, FR, GER, GREK, HEBR, HIST, ITAL, JWST, JPNS, MARS, MUS, PHIL,PTGS, REL, RUSS, SPAN, THTR

Any course offered by these departments is allowable, provided that it is open to students in the offering department and is not focused primarily on professional training, natural science or mathematics. If there is any question about if an elective will count, it is recommended to speak with the Academic Program Administrator prior to taking the course.

3. At least 6 of the 12 required credit hours must come from courses at the 30000-level or above, or from courses with a required prerequisite in the same department. Three credits must come from the Humanities and 3 credits must come from the Behavioral/Social Sciences.
