Science & Technology

Engineering, Biology and More...

No more than one technology (TN) or technology and lab (TNL) course may be used to satisfy this standard.

At least two of the three Science and Technology courses must include the corresponding lab.

No more than two courses can be from any one department (note: some departments have multiple prefixes).


Definitions:

SCL or TNL: Lab is co-requisite; students must take both lecture and lab to satisfy the general education standard.

SCLO or TNLO: Students may take lecture and corresponding lab together to satisfy SCL standard or lecture without the lab for SC credit.

Note: A combination of three SCL/TNL courses can be used to satisfy the Science and Technology standard, however all three courses have to be completed with the corresponding labs.
