The course must:
1. be from outside the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), unless:
- course is a Foreign Language (not a literature course). These will automatically be approved;
- the course is from A&S and CALS but only if under three credits, such as some performing and studio art courses under the course prefixes ART, MUSIC, and PMA.
If a student feels strongly that an A&S or a CALS course should be designated as Liberal Studies, the student should contact the instructor of the course directly and request that the instructor submit the course to their college Registrar's Office for consideration as a Liberal Studies designation. If approved by the A&S or the CALS Registrar's Offices, the College of Engineering will honor the designation.
