General Education Requirements

This document provides links to information about the University General Education Requirements, for which L&S serves as the campus "trustee".

Lists of courses fulfilling the Communications, Quantitative Reasoning, and Ethnic Studies requirements can be found by searching the UW-Madison "Course Guide".  Instructions for how to do this, as well as "frequently asked questions", can be found at the UW-Madison undergraduate General Education requirements website.

Campus-wide undergraduate General Education requirements went into effect in the fall semester, 1996-97 for all undergraduates whose initial college matriculation date is on or after May 20, 1996. The University Academic Planning Council has assigned the overall academic administration of the requirements to the College of Letters and Science to act as trustee on behalf of all schools and colleges. Questions about General Education should be directed to Associate Dean Elaine Klein (elaine.klein <at>, who chairs the University General Education Committee.
