General List

How to count total requirements on this list: some courses can be used to satisfy more than one requirement. For example, EALC-E 100 may satisfy both Culture Studies A and an Arts and Humanities requirement. In this case, you would check off two requirements. Be sure to count requirements, not the number of courses on this list. If a course fulfills more than one requirement, count all the requirements it meets.
