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.
The required Natural Science Electives can be completed one of two ways. Either option usually begins with a laboratory course, but Option 2 may start with a non-laboratory course.
Listed below are some of the options for lab sciences you might want to consider. All of these courses are open to non-majors. A list of additional non-lab courses can be found in the undergraduate catalog under Graduation Requirements/Liberal Studies Requirements.
* Typically restricted to certain majors or minors; on limited
