*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 https://oucc.dasa.ncsu.edu/general-education-program/.
Health & Exercise Studies – 2 hours to be selected from the approved GEP Health & Exercise Studies list.
a. One fitness and wellness course (any Health & Exercise Studies 100-level course).
b. One additional credit hour of Health & Exercise Studies 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.
