General Education/Rowan Experience Requirements


All Engineering majors are required to fulfill the General Education/Rowan Experience requirements of a Specialized Degree Model.  In this model, your Math, Science and Communications requirements* are met from the required courses in your respective Engineering curriculum.  Other Rowan Experience courses are met throughout your required program of study.  For example, Senior Engineering Clinic II satisfies the Writing Intensive (WI) course and Freshman Clinic I satisfies Rowan Seminar (RS).  College Comp II and Public Speaking are covered in your Sophomore Clinic I and Sophomore Clinic II.


You need to choose 15 credits of General Education courses (typically five courses; 3 credits each) that meet the following criteria: 


  • Two courses (6 credits) of History Humanities Language (HHL)
  • Two courses (6 credits) of Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS)
    • 3 credits in SBS are predetermined within your engineering major: ChE, CEE and ECE students will take ECON 04102 Microeconomics BME and ME students will take ENT 06.240 Entrepreneurship & Innovation(must have junior status);
    • BME and CEE students satisfy the additional 3 SBS credits by satisfying their curriculum requirements as follows: BME's will take Biomedical Ethics, PHIL 09341;  CEE's will take  Intro to Mapping & GIS, GEO06.193
    • All other majors, the second SBS is a course of your choice 
  • One course (3 credits) Artistic and Creative Expression (ACE)


An additional requirement is completion of courses that are identified as Multicultural/Global (listed as M/G or MCUL), and/or Literature-based (LIT).  Both requirements must be fulfilled.  However, a course may be designated as both LIT and MCUL in which case you have satisfied this requirement.  For example, ENGL 02112, Readings in Asian Lit meets both MCUL and LIT criteria, and falls under the HHL bank of courses. 





Double counting of HHL, SBS, and ACE courses is not permitted.  If a course meets the requirements of more than one category (e.g., HHL and ACE), you may only use it in one.  



*Communication - satisfied by Sophomore Clinic I (3 cr, College Comp II); Sophomore Clinic II (3 cr, Public Speaking)

Mathematics and Science - satisfied by Calculus I, II, III, Introductory Mechanics, College Chemistry I, Computer Programming, Introductory Electricity & Magnetism, College Chemistry II or Biological Applications, as required by program.
Writing Intensive - satisfied by Senior Clinic II
