No credit given for Foreign Language because the "Modern Language" requirement only applies to select majors.
4. U.S. Government or HistoryNO
No credit given for U.S. History or Government because survey courses in American history or government are options, but not required, to fulfill the "American/Western Culture" and "Social Sciences" requirements.
No credit given for Economics because it is one of four areas of the "Social Sciences" requirement, from which students need only select one.
