Bachelor degree students are also required to take a research (RE) course as a part of their programmatic requirements. The competency codes (WR, COM, CL, MATH, SCI, SS, MC, CU, E/P, G/US, G/W, and RE) found at the end of the course description identify courses that fulfill these requirements. All students must meet the competency requirements to graduate.

**Students must take two courses with a Social Science (SS) distinction and one course with a Multicultural (MC) distinction. The multicultural distinction may be filled by combining the requirements and taking a course with both the social science and multicultural distinctions or separately by taking 2 courses with a social science distinction and 1 course with a multicultural distinction typically included in programmatic requirements.
