Multidisciplinary Experience Approved Course List

All catalog terms are approved to use University Core Curriculum Science, Technology and Science (STS) courses to meet the Multidisciplinary requirement.


  • Courses not approved to meet College of Science degree requirements cannot be used to fulfill any curriculum requirement. For example, College of Science students who take STAT 11300 may use this course to fulfill the Science, Technology, and Society requirement of the University Core Curriculum but may not use it to fulfill the Multidisciplinary requirement or any other College of Science degree requirement. The No Count course list contains a full listing of courses, by discipline, which may not be used to meet any College of Science degree requirement.
  • CS 10100 to fulfill the Science, Technology, and Society requirement of the University Core Curriculum but may not use it to fulfill the Multidisciplinary requirement or any other College of Science degree requirement.  It can be used for free elective credit.
