Weinberg College Distribution Requirements
One goal of a liberal arts education is exposure to a wide range of academic disciplines. All Weinberg College students take two one-quarter courses in each of six broad areas of intellectual inquiry within the arts and sciences.
The six distribution requirement areas are:
- Area I - Natural Sciences
- Area II - Formal Studies
- Area III - Social and Behavioral Sciences
- Area IV - Historical Studies
- Area V - Ethics and Values
- Area VI - Literature and Fine Arts
Courses in each area share subject matter, ways of acquiring new information, evaluative criteria, and modes of analysis. By taking courses in each area, you can become familiar with a broad range of problems and the methodologies for approaching them, acquiring the breadth of interests and intellectual flexibility that are hallmarks of a well-educated person.
Interdisciplinary studies courses. Some courses can count toward more than one distribution area, subject to certain rules and limitations.
