Students in multidisciplinary programs (e.g., Marketing Communications) should follow liberal arts policy of that degree.
Note: Although there are courses listed in the Liberal Arts section that can also fulfill other requirements (e.g., SPAN 101 can used in General Education: Communication-Speaking and Listening) courses taken for Liberal Arts credit cannot be double counted in any other area (e.g., major, minor).
