Social Sciences and Humanities (15 Semester Hours)
Studies in the humanities and social sciences serve not only to meet the objectives of a broad education, but also to meet the objectives of the engineering profession. EE students are required to take at least 15 credits of social sciences and humanities so they are more aware of their social responsibilities and better able to consider related factors in the decision-making process. To ensure this, a maximum of 9 hours in social sciences and 6 hours in humanities, or vice versa, must be taken; at least 6 of these hours must be beyond the introductory level (2000 level or higher courses). Breakouts by area are as follows: In place of 3 credits of social sciences and humanities, ID 1010 Freshman Seminar may be taken during the fall semester of the first year in the program. The balance between social science and humanities now becomes 6 and 6, with the 2000 level or higher course requirement unchanged.
