Core Curriculum (Bachelor's Degree)

Stevenson University requires all bachelor's degree-seeking students to complete a minimum of 16 academic courses in the liberal arts and sciences and one course in physical education. In order to fulfill this requirement, all students must complete the following:

Skills Courses

Distribution Courses

Note: All these courses must be outside of the discipline of the major, but they may fulfill secondary program requirements for the major.

Core Electives (two courses, 6 credits) These two courses may be selected from any of the distribution disciplines or from foreign language courses, communication (CM) courses, English writing and language courses, or interdisciplinary courses that include one of the distribution disciplines. Both of these courses must be outside of the discipline of the major, and they cannot be used to fulfill any additional core requirements, but they may fulfill secondary program requirements for the major.

Foreign Language
Candidates for the bachelor of arts degree must complete six credits of foreign language at the 200-level. They may use their two core electives (see above) to fulfill this requirement.
