Below, you’ll find the typical first-year courses taken by students in Exploratory Arts. Your courses may be slightly different, based on placement testing and courses you've already taken through dual enrollment or Advanced Placement (AP).

As an IUP student, you’ll need to take three classes to fulfill your social science requirements. Some may be required or strongly recommended by your major.
It’s wise to mark required or recommended courses
as your first choices for registration. If additional classes interest you, you can add them later as electives. It is not necessary to take a social science now, but, if you have room in your schedule, this is one area to consider. Note that
you may use a prefix (such as ANTH or GEOG) only once. Courses marked (GMA) also fulfill the Global and Multicultural Awareness requirement.
