Experiential Learning Requirement (2 Units required)

Included in experiential learning are study abroad, research, service-learning, leadership, internships, (including co-ops, teaching, and practicum), or other courses or experiences with ELR designation.

World Language Requirement

Students must meet one of the following: (a)complete a language course numbered 122 or higher at Elon, or receive transfer or study abroad credit for the same; (b) place into a language course numbered 200 or above upon arriving at Elon, using a department of world languages approved placement instrument; (c) score a 4 or 5 on an AP language exam or similar exam. Each student must take the language placement test by October 1 of his or her first full year at Elon. Students are allowed two tries; the higher score is counted. That score stands and may not be repeated by later testing. Consideration for Phi Beta Kappa membership requires completion of one intermediate world language course, placement beyond that level or equivalent proficiency.

Studies in the Arts and Sciences

Students must fulfill the requirements in each of the following categories.

Transfer students with at least 18 s.h. of transfer credit must complete 32 hours total in Studies in the Arts & Sciences, but may have as few as 7 hours in one or more of the four Studies in the Arts & Sciences areas.

Expression (8 s.h.) __________________   __________________

Eight hours chosen from at least two of the following: literature (in English or world languages), philosophy, & fine arts (art, dance, music, music theatre, & theatre). At least one course must be literature.

Civilization (8 s.h.)_______________   __________________

Eight hours chosen from at least two of the following: historyworld languages, art history and religious studies.

Society (8 s.h.) _________________   __________________

Eight hours chosen from at least two of the following: economics, geography, human service studies, political science, psychology, & sociology/anthropology, and public health studies 201 or 202.

Science/Analysis (Lab:___) (8 s.h.) __________________    __CSC 130________________

Eight hours chosen from one or more of the following: mathematics/statistics, science, and computer science. At least one course must be a physical or biological laboratory science.

Advanced Studies (8 s.h.) __________________   __________________

Eight hours of 300-400 level coursework outside the major field and chosen from areas under Studies in the Arts and Sciences.

COR Interdisciplinary Capstone Seminar (4 s.h.) __________________

300-400 level COR course; requires junior/senior status.

Society (8 s.h.) __ECO 111__  __________

Eight hours chosen from at least two of the following: economics, geography, human service studies, political science, psychology, & sociology/anthropology, and public health studies 201 or 202.


Total Credit Hours: 56

A student may be exempt from MTH 110 and/or MTH 151 by demonstrating proficiency.

Once a student has received credit, including transfer credit for a course, credit may not be received for any course with material that is equivalent to it or is a prerequisite for it without permission of the mathematics department.

All graduating mathematics majors are required to complete a senior portfolio of their work. This portfolio will include a compilation of their work across their four years of mathematical study at Elon; therefore, students should be mindful of this requirement as they complete work for all their courses and be sure to retain electronic copies of work that they may want to include in their portfolio in their senior year.
