Advising Track III


An Enrichment Track for students entering the University on the Dean's, President's, or Honors Scholarships (ACT 25 or above or high school rank of 5% or above) may satisfy some General Education requirements in the Choice area with additional General Studies course options and additional elective options as follows:
  1. substitute 1 elective course for Composition I
  2. substitute 4 General Studies courses, each drawn from one of the following areas, for the standard math, science, and history requirements: (I) Math/Science, (II) Social Science/Statistics, (III) History/Philosophy, (IV) Literature/Arts/Relig
  3. apply AP or CLEP credits satisfying standard General Education requirements towards any electives in the Choice area
  4. apply AP or CLEP credits towards any 2 of the integrated Core courses in Civilization, Fine Arts, or Literature

Advantages of Enrichment Track
- no requirement to take most standard introductory courses
- more elective hours
- accommodates maximum CLEP/AP hours to apply toward graduation
- a distinctive transcript when applying for graduate or professional school

Enrichment Track III General Studies Electives (GSE) Designated General Studies courses are noted in each annual course schedule and may be taken at any time during a student's course of study. (See designated GSE courses in Course Schedule.) One General Studies course may simultaneously fulfill requirements for General Education and the major.

General Studies Elective (GSE) courses have been selected for their contribution to a broadening, liberating, and enriching educational experience. GSE courses encourage conceptual thinking and discussion of ideas, investigate the presuppositions, values, or limits of an academic discipline, and along with an emphasis on reading and writing often allow investigation of a chosen problem, topic, or issue. While most provide exposure to a subject area beyond a basic introductory level, they are accessible to students from all majors across campus. These GSE courses are designed to be taken over the course of a student's college career; please note any prerequisites or recommendations for course readiness. The GSE courses listed below apply to the four designated GSE areas in Track III of the SNU General Education requirements.

This list describes GSE courses offered in regular rotations. Additional courses may appear in new academic years. GSE courses need not be taken early on in a student's college career. They should be spread throughout a program of study as available courses coincide with a student's interests.
