Divisional Studies

Divisional Studies is an alternative to the Core Curriculum for fulfilling the general education breadth requirements. To develop a broad perspective that supports and strengthens studies in the major, the program requires students to select courses from a specified group in each of the principal divisions of the liberal arts: humanities, mathematics and computer science, natural sciences, and social sciences. Divisional Studies courses are suitable for non-majors as an introduction to a discipline’s area of study and the tools by which new knowledge is gathered. Whenever possible, Divisional Studies courses include direct experience in basic methods such as laboratory and fieldwork.

Divisional Studies requires six one-semester Divisional Studies courses, two in each of the three divisions outside the division of the major. At least one divisional course completed in the division of natural sciences must be designated as including a laboratory component.

For purposes of interpreting the Divisional Studies requirement for any student, departmental majors and other degree programs are assigned to divisions as indicated on this site. However, several departments offer individual courses that may be taken toward the Divisional Studies requirement in a division other than that of the departmental major; for example, the Department of Earth & Environment offers both social science and natural science divisional courses. To ensure that a sufficient range of disciplines is discovered and explored, students may not apply courses from a single department toward fulfillment of the Divisional Studies requirement in more than one division; and courses offered by the department in which a student is pursuing a major do not count toward the Divisional Studies requirement for that major. Minors or additional majors completed in divisions other than that of the primary major may be used to fulfill the Divisional Studies requirement in those divisions. For example, students majoring in English (humanities) may elect to fulfill their natural sciences divisional requirement with a minor or second major in physics.

Divisional Studies Courses

Students not in the Core Curriculum will satisfy the general education requirements with courses taken from the following list. Each course below is labeled to indicate the division to which it corresponds: HU, humanities; MCS, mathematics and computer science; NS, natural sciences; and SS, social sciences. Courses that satisfy the one-course laboratory requirement in natural sciences are so designated.

Note: All courses short-listed below are offered frequently and, except in the case of some two-semester sequences, are accessible without prerequisites. Some College of Arts & Sciences departments have developed expanded lists of courses that, although more advanced or less frequently offered, may also be taken toward fulfillment of the Divisional Studies requirement, provided that the student has completed all prerequisites and consulted with his or her advisor before taking the course.

Expanded lists of Divisional Studies courses are available only as indicated below, and Divisional Studies credit is automatically awarded for courses on the expanded list only if they are taken within the College of Arts & Sciences host department. Questions about Divisional Studies short lists and expanded lists should be addressed to the department’s director of undergraduate studies or to an advisor in CAS Academic Advising, at 100 Bay State Road, on the fourth floor.
