Liberal Education Program - Tier 2
Tier 2 courses cover different areas of knowledge that prepare students for active citizenry and serve as the basis for lifelong learning.
Only two requirements in Tier 2 may be fulfilled by courses in the same subject area.
All students must complete both Natural World I and II and are required to complete any 6 of the 7 remaining areas of knowledge. However, students are required to complete all Tier 2 areas that are restricted by their major. For example, if a student is in a major that restricts the Mind and Body requirement, he/she will see the following on the degree evaluation:
- Natural World I
- Natural World II
- Mind and Body
- Complete 5 of 6 of
- American Experience
- Creative Drive
- Cultural Expressions
- Global Awareness
- Social Structure, Conflict and Consensus
- Time and Place
To ensure students receive a first class education in an ever changing world, SCSU faculty regularly adapt the course offerings to provide cutting edge curriculum within each LEP required area. Students access the most up-to-date course offerings through one of the many advising resources or by meeting with a professional advisor. Prospective students can also receive advise by meeting with a member of our transfer student services team.
Tier 2 Study Abroad policy: All students who study abroad for the span of a semester or year shall have the opportunity to waive two of their successfully completed courses for Tier 2 requirements. Students, however, may not waive departmental degree requirements, unless authorized by the department, nor may they waive both of the Natural World science requirements through the study abroad policy.
