University of Maine - Presque Isle
Presque Isle, ME
UMPI says, "the concepts fostered throughout the Curriculum are: literacy; numeracy; personal, social, and cultural awareness; scientific inquiry; and an appreciation of the arts. The courses chosen to address these themes actively engage the student in searching for a place in the larger context of society, culture, history, expression, thought, and human behavior. Ultimately, the Curriculum gives each student, regardless of major, the basis for grasping the complexities of life as a whole and the tools to confront its challenges." [Source]
General Education Requirements
3. Foreign LanguageNO
No credit given for Foreign Language because students may fulfill the requirement with elementary-level study.
4. U.S. Government or HistoryNO
No credit given for U.S. Government or History because a survey course in American government or history is an option, but not required, to fulfill the "Social Sciences: Option One" requirement.
No credit given for Mathematics because the "Quantitative Decision-Making" requirement may be satisfied by courses with little college-level math content.
