These two University Undergraduate Requirements (ACD and GP) are part of the larger General Education and University Requirements (GEUR) Program.  The General Education portion of the GEUR program includes the requirements for Communicating Effectively; Demonstrating Knowledge of Past and Present Human Behavior; Applying Scientific Principles to the Natural World; and Evaluating Individual Responsibility to Self, Society, and the World.  A list of approved General Education courses can be found on the General Education Requirements website.   Note that, in general, GEUR courses can count wherever they have been approved, which means that some courses may satisfy more than one graduation requirement.
