*General Education Program (GEP) requirements:
To complete the requirements for graduation and the General Education Program, the following credit hours and co-requisites must be satisfied. University approved GEP course lists for each category can be found at http://www.ncsu.edu/uap/academic-standards/gep/courselists/index.html.
 
PHYSICAL EDUCATION - 2 hours to be selected from the approved GEP Physical Education list.
a. One fitness and wellness course (any PE 100-level course).
b. One additional credit hour of PE activity courses.
HUMANITIES - 6 credits to be selected in two different disciplines (two different course prefixes) from the approved GEP Humanities list.
SOCIAL SCIENCES - 3 credits to be selected in a discipline other than economics from the approved GEP Social Sciences list. EC 205 (or EC 201 or ARE 201) taken as part of the Major requirements satisfies 3 credit hours of the 6 credit hours needed to fulfill the GEP Social Sciences requirement.
ADDITIONAL BREADTH - 3 credits to be selected from the approved GEP Humanities, Social Sciences or Visual and Performing Arts lists.
INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES - 5-6 credits to be selected from the approved GEP Interdisciplinary Perspectives list.
 
Co-requisites:
U.S. Diversity and Global Knowledge co-requisites must be satisfied to complete the General Education requirements. Choose course(s) that are identified on the approved GEP course lists as meeting the U.S. Diversity and Global Knowledge co-requisites.
Foreign Language proficiency at the FL_102 level will be required for graduation.
