BreadthTerm used in the Liberal Arts and Science curriculum to describe the "ways of knowing" in the Arts and Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Natural (Physical and Biological) Sciences. Undergraduate study in the Liberal Arts and Sciences requires students to become familiar with the variety of ways through which humans systematically study and interpret the world, and how they communicate that understanding to others. At the request of departments and faculty, undergraduate courses are reviewed and approved to carry special designations indicating that they meet breadth requirements.
For a description of what "breadth" courses are expected to convey to students in them, see the discussion of Breadth in the Undergraduate Catalog. For procedures on how courses are reviewed and approved to carry breadth designations, see Liberal Arts and Science (LAS), Level, and Breadth Course Review .
