Academic Regulations & Procedures

Liberal Arts Requirements

Liberal arts requirements refer to requirements set to ensure that all students are exposed to a wide range of subjects and methods. The Academic Catalog describes Carleton’s liberal arts requirements in the section “Academic Programs.” Certain courses do not count toward fulfillment of the liberal arts requirements because they do not satisfy the intent of the policy. Refer to the liberal arts “areas” noted in the Academic Catalog following each course description. Prematriculation courses, advanced placement credits, and independent study/reading/research cannot be used to fulfill liberal arts requirements. Courses taken to fulfill specific graduation requirements must be passed with a grade of S or C- or better.
