Swanson School of Engineering
undergraduate students must take six courses in the humanities and social
sciences as part of their degree requirements.
We believe in the value of developing critical thinking skills in
academic pursuits outside of STEM, in addition to those developed in Math,
Science, and Engineering. Engineers
solve problems by drawing on information they know from all disciplines and elective
requirements enhance our students’ overall academic development.
As part of their humanities and social
science elective requirements, students must fulfill requirements related to
depth, breadth, and writing. Please
consult the Catalog for details on these requirements and a full
list of approved humanities/social science elective courses.
