All students in the College of Arts and Sciences must meet General Education requirements in addition to specific requirements within the major area of study.
Each student must complete at least four writing or writing enhanced (WE) courses to complete the University Writing Requirement. At least two of these courses must be from General Education. Based upon Admissions application information, students may be placed in ENGL 100; ENGL 100 will count toward the Writing requirement if completed with a minimum grade of C.
A single course may not be used to meet more than one of the General Education requirements, but a single course may count toward a General Education requirement and the student’s major or minor requirements, as well as count as a Writing Enhanced course in the Writing requirement. Students should check with their advisor regarding the eligibility of transfer credits to meet General Education requirements after students have enrolled at Stetson. A key component of a liberal education is to learn about the modes of inquiry from a diverse set of disciplines, so no more than 3 courses used to meet General Education requirements may come from a single department and at least 16 of the 32 units required for graduation must come from departments outside the department of the major.
For many majors, certain courses outside the major field of study are required. These courses are called “collateral requirements.”
A student majoring in Education may count among the 32 units as many in the major as are required for completion of an approved program for teacher certification by the State of Florida.
