Each baccalaureate student must take at least one course of three credits or more designated to meet the Laboratory Science University Requirement. These courses must meet the following requirements:
The course must have been approved for inclusion in the General Education program.
The course must have a designated laboratory as approved by the Committee on Undergraduate Programs (CUP).
At least two-thirds of the content must focus on a natural science discipline or combination of disciplines.
The natural science disciplines are astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, oceanography, and physics. Courses which do not originate in a department which is home to these disciplines must have the approval of the appropriate department(s) that the two-thirds of content requirement is met.
