*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:
http://www.ncsu.edu/uap/academic-standards/gep/courselists/index.html

Physical Education:
2 hours to be selected from the approved GEP Physical Education list:
a. One fitness and wellness course (any PE 100-level course)
b. One additional credit hour of PE activity courses
Humanities & Social Science Requirements
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: 2 credits to be selected from the approved GEP Interdisciplinary Perspectives list

Co-Requisities:
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
