* All students are required to take state examination on these courses in their 2nd year. It is highly recommended to complete them by the end of 4th semester.

 

**

  1. Students from EMSD (in LAS), AMI and SFW should not take General Education Mathematics courses. They fulfill their requirements in this area as part of their program requirements.
  2. Students of Anthropology department are required to take additional 3 credits in Computer Science.
  3. First year students in ANTH, ES, ICP, JMC, LAS, PSY, SOC, TCMA and GEO departments who hope to transfer to BA should enroll in Introduction to Contemporary Mathematics I; in order to be eligible to transfer, they must receive a final grade of B+ or higher. For students who take this course and transfer successfully, this is the only required Gen Ed mathematics course. If not (and assuming they pass Introduction to Contemporary Mathematics I), they need to take one of the other General Education Mathematics courses to fulfill their requirements at some point during their academic career.
  4. First year students in ANTH, ES, ICP, JMC, LAS, PSY, SOC, TCMA and GEO departments who hope to transfer to ECO, AMI or SFW departments should enroll in “Linear Algebra and Geometry for ECO/SFW/AMI” course. Only students who got passing grade for this course will be considered for transfer.
  5. Students in PSY, SOC and JMC departments should take Introduction to Probability and Statistics during their freshman or sophomore year.  In their junior year they will take a more advanced quantitative methods course that covers their second Mathematics requirement.

6.      Students from ANTH, ES, ICP, GEO, TCMA and LAS departments who do not intend to transfer to BA, ECO, AMI or SFW should take two of General Education Mathematics courses to fulfill their requirements in Mathematics over their four years at AUCA.

***

1.      Students of PSY and SOC departments have to cover only 3 credits of Natural Science.

2.      Students of AMI department have to take 6 credits of Physics in order to fulfill this requirement.

3.      All students in their 2nd year must take one Second Year Seminar. This seminar substitutes for one required 6-credit course in either Humanities, Social Sciences, Arts or Natural Science.

4.      Only 6 credits of foreign languages can be counted for Humanities requirement. However, you must take two semesters for the language courses to count towards graduation.
