3. Foreign LanguageNO
No credit given for Foreign Language because the requirement only applies to select degree programs and 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" requirement.
No credit given for Economics because it is one of three areas of the "Social Sciences" requirement, from which students need only select two.
