Guidelines for Transfer equivalency for LAS 200
Transfer credit for LAS 200 may be granted to a student who has taken no more than two university-level courses that together:
1) center on foundational works spanning at least two of the following disciples:
Humanities, Social Sciences and/or Natural Sciences
2) provide an interdisciplinary exploration of society's enduring questions.
3) apply cultural analysis with an emphasis on critical thinking and effective writing.
Courses that center on foundational works within a single discipline (such as Humanities) may be accepted if the student has taken at least one other interdisciplinary course that involves some combination of Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences. (An example would be a course equivalent to BW's Humans and the Earth, which integrates social science and natural science disciplines). A mix of standard, non-interdisciplinary core courses, such as introductory philosophy, political science, or biology, will not be accepted for transfer equivalency for LAS 200. In sum, the one or two courses accepted as transfer equivalency for LAS 200 must reflect a focus on 1) foundational works; 2) interdisciplinarity; and 3) cultural analysis. These three elements must be applied toward an exploration of society's enduring questions and must have a strong emphasis on critical thinking and writing skills.
