What do you get credit for?
- HON 2301, the fall discussion course, fulfills the required core Language, Philosophy, and Culture credit.
- ENGL 1370, the fall lecture course, fulfills the second half of the required core Communications credit (ENGL 1304 equivalent)
- HON 2101, the spring discussion course, gives students 1 hour of elective credit.
- ENGL 2361, the spring lecture course, fulfills the first half of the required core Communications credit (ENGL 1303 equivalent)
What if you already have credit for English?
If you made a 4 or higher on the AP Language and Composition test (normally taken junior year) or you have Dual Credit for ENGL 1304, then you would enroll in ENGL 2360 instead of ENGL 1370 in the fall semester. ENGL 2360 gives students 3 hours of elective credit rather than repeat credit for core Communications.
If you made a 3 or higher on the AP Language and Composition test (normally taken junior year) or you have Dual Credit for ENGL 1303, then you would enroll in POLS 2341 instead of ENGL 2361 in the spring semester. POLS 2341 gives students credit for the required core Writing in the Disciplines course.
Please note, students who enroll in the alternate lecture will still be taking the same course as students in regular enrollment.
