College of Arts and Sciences

All undergraduates at Case Western Reserve must complete the SAGES Program and the physical education requirement, in addition to school-specific general education requirements based on the school of his or her major.

 

Students pursuing a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences may not fulfill the Departmental Seminar requirement with a course that is being used to fulfill and Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, or Natural & Mathematical Sciences breadth requirement. A course that has been designated as a Departmental Seminar and that also falls into the Global and Cultural Diversity category may be used to fulfill both requirements.

 

Course credit earned by Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A-levels and similar programs offered by high schools, by proficiency exams and by courses taken at domestic and international universities may be applied to elective credit as determined by the academic departments of the College, and may be used to satisfy some general education requirements as described under each heading below.

 

Breadth Requirements

(minimum of six three- or four-credit-hour courses totaling 18 credit-hours)

One-half or more of the breadth requirement courses in each breadth area must be taken on campus. Credit earned for Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A-levels and similar programs offered in high schools, or by proficiency exams may be used to satisfy up to one-half of this requirement if the credit is equivalent to specific courses taught at CWRU. AP, IB, and A-level credit equivalents ending in “TR” may not be used to satisfy the breadth requirements. Pre-matriculation and post matriculation transfer credit for work done at other institutions—for example, at colleges or universities prior to matriculating at CWRU, during the summer or in an approved Study Abroad program—may be applied to satisfy part of this requirement if approved by the appropriate department.

 

NOTE: Two courses used to fulfill requirements for the major also may be used to fulfill the breadth requirements.

 

Arts and Humanities (six to eight credit-hours)

 

Two three- or four-credit-hour courses selected from:

  • Akkadian (AKKD)
  • Arabic (ARAB)
  • Art History (ARTH)
  • Art Studio (ARTS)
  • Chinese (CHIN)
  • Classics (CLSC)
  • Dance (DANC)

  • Music – General (MUGN)
  • Music – History (MUHI)
  • Music – Theory (MUTH)
  • Philosophy (PHIL)
  • Portuguese (PORT)
  • Religious Studies (RLGN)
  • Russian (RUSN)
  • Spanish (SPAN)
  • Theater (THTR)
  • World Literature (WLIT)
Natural and Mathematical Sciences (six to eight credit-hours)

 

Two three- or four-credit-hour courses selected from:

  • Astronomy (ASTR)
  • Biochemistry (BIOC)
  • Biology (BIOL)
  • Chemistry (CHEM)
  • Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences (EEPS)
  • Mathematics (MATH)
  • Nutrition (NTRN)
  • Physics (PHYS)
  • Statistics (STAT)
Social Sciences (six credit-hours)

 

Two three-credit-hour courses selected from:

  • Anthropology (ANTH)
  • Cognitive Science (COGS)
  • Communication Sciences (COSI)
  • Economics (ECON)
  • Political Science (POSC)
  • Psychology (PSCL)
  • Sociology (SOCI)

Quantitative Reasoning (three to four credit-hours)

Each student must complete at least one three- or four-credit-hour course identified as a quantitative reasoning course selected from the list included in the General Bulletin. The course used to meet this requirement may also be used to fulfill a major, minor, and/or breadth requirement.

 

Course credit earned by Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A-levels and similar programs offered by high schools, by proficiency exams, by courses taken at domestic colleges and universities or in an approved Study Abroad program may be used to satisfy the quantitative reasoning requirement if the credit is equivalent to the specific CWRU courses that satisfy the requirement.

 

Global and Cultural Diversity (three to four credit-hours)

Each student must complete at least one three- or four-credit-hour course selected from the list included in the General Bulletin. The goal of the Global and Cultural Diversity requirement is to provide students with the opportunity for academic reflection about the variation in human experience. Courses that satisfy this requirement 1) substantively explore one or more cultures outside the United States, or 2) address in a substantive way ethnic, gender, sexual, religious, or other cultural practices within or outside the United States, so as to provide students with fresh perspectives on their own cultural assumptions, traditions, and experiences. The course used to meet this requirement may also be used to fulfill a major, minor, and/or breadth requirement.

 

Course credit earned by Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A-levels and similar programs offered at high schools may not be used to satisfy the Global and Cultural Diversity Requirement. Transfer credits for college-level course work done at other institutions—for example, prior to matriculation, during the summer, or in an approved Study Abroad program—may be applied to this requirement if approved by the appropriate department.

First-Year Schedule Recommendations

 

Schedule development instructions:

  1.  Four concentrations are available within the anthropology major: general anthropology, medical anthropology, archaeology, and physical anthropology. Students should consult the General Bulletin to see specific course requirements for each concentration.
  2. Students interested in archaeology may want to consider ANTH 107 – Archaeology: An Introduction as a first-semester survey course.
  3. Students interested in medical anthropology may want to consider ANTH 215 – Health, Culture, and Disease: An Introduction to Medical Anthropology. If this course is full, keep in mind that it is offered in spring as well.
  4. Students should complete ANTH 102 before enrolling in a 300-level ANTH course.

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. It is important for prospective art history majors to take ARTH 101 and 102 as soon as possible. They are both required for the ARTH major and provide exposure to important ways of studying art, including study of art works seen in person at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
    2. While all 200 and 300-level ARTH courses are open without prerequisites, most are taught at an advanced level and students are encouraged start with 100- and 200-level courses.
    3. Relevant courses in the classics, history, or modern languages departments provide helpful background to various upper-level art history courses.
    4. There is no language requirement for the major in art history, but students are encouraged to complete two years of foreign language study.
    5. Students do not earn credit for Art History 101 or 102 through the AP Art History exam. Art history majors are required to take ARTH 101 and 102 at CWRU because, at all levels of study (100-, 200-, and 300-level courses), the department teaches an object-focused approach, teaching from and assigning essays and research papers about works of art seen in person in the Cleveland Museum of Art. It is best to start working this way as a student in the introductory courses.

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. Students with credit for PHYS 121 should proceed to PHYS 122 (assuming prerequisites are met).
    2. ASTR 201 and 202 do not satisfy requirements for the astronomy major or minor.
    3. The first-year MATH and PHYS course requirements are the same for both the BA and BS degrees in astronomy.
    4. ENGR 131 is the preferred programming course for astronomy majors. However, students with credit for EECS 132 or who are considering a major or minor that requires EECS 132 and earn credit for this course may substitute it for the ENGR 131 requirement upon declaring the major.
    5. Students interested in pursuing the astronomy major who do not have credit for calculus or physics should make sure to register for MATH 121 and PHYS 121 in the fall semester.
    6. Students who place into MATH 120 via the math diagnostic should take ENGR 131 in the fall and PHYS 121 in the spring semester.
    7. Students who place into MATH 120 via the math diagnostic will be behind the normal math and physics sequence for an astronomy major. While it is possible to catch up in the second year, students would be well advised to catch up by taking summer courses. Students in this situation should contact the academic representative for astronomy, Professor Earle Luck (rel2@case.edu), upon arriving in the fall to further discuss the major.
    8. ASTR 151 is highly recommended, but not required for the major.

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. In general, prospective classics majors should take CLSC 231 – Greek Civilization and CLSC 232 – Roman Civilization and start GREK 101 and/or LATN 101 as soon as possible. However, students could also take CLSC 316 – Greek Tragedy, or CLSC 304 – Ancient Rome, or CLSC 337 – Ancient Medicine, or, if interested in classical reception, CLSC 220 – Art and Literature in the Classical Tradition I.
    2. It is recommended that students take CLSC 231 – Greek Civilization before taking CLSC 232 – Roman Civilization or any other CLSC course, although not required.
    3. For the purposes of planning, students should note that: CLSC 231 – Greek Civilization and LATN 101 and GREK 102 are only taught in the fall, while GREK 101, LATN 102, and CLSC 232 – Roman Civilization are only taught in the spring. Also note that students who have not had Greek or Latin must take GREK 101 or LATN 101 before being able to go further.
    4. Students who have had two or more years of Latin (or possibly Greek) in high school should proceed to LATN 201 – Cicero and Caesar or GREK 370 – Greek Prose Composition.
    5. Students who have credit for LATN 202 through AP Latin may enroll in LATN 380 – Ovid. Those with a similar demonstrable experience in Greek may enroll in GREK 370 – Greek Prose Composition.

    2. Students should take courses in a language from a region of the world that is of greatest interest to them. Students beginning a new language should keep in mind that the first course in some languages is offered only in the fall.
    3. International studies requires "competency in a non-native language." This usually requires students to complete courses through the 202-level.

    *Students with credit for a course have the option of using that credit as a prerequisite and registering for a higher-level course or forfeiting their credit and repeating the course for a grade at CWRU. Students who choose either option may make changes to their enrollment during the first two weeks of the semester (drop/add period) should they discover that the course in which they originally enrolled is not at the appropriate level. Students may find it more manageable to change to lower-level course after beginning at the higher level.

     

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. MATH 150 is offered in spring semester and should be taken by all declared and prospective majors. It provides an overview of the study of mathematics (i.e. what it is like to be a math major). While not required, if taken during the first year it counts as an elective.
    2. Students with credit for MATH 122 and advanced math backgrounds (score of 5 the AP Calculus BC exam or equivalent) may consider taking MATH 305 or 307.
    3. The requirements for the BA and BS are the same in the first year, with the exception of the ENGR 131 requirement. The BS requires a science core plus a science sequence; the BA does not. Thus, the BA has more flexibility in elective courses. The BS in applied mathematics requires an additional professional core in a non-mathematics area to promote scientific breadth.
    4. Students interested in completing the BA may take ENGR 131 or MATH 330 (after completing the necessary prerequisite). Students interested in completing the BS will need to take MATH 330 and should not take ENGR 131.

    Most incoming music and music education majors have already been accepted to the major based, in part, on video audition materials submitted as part of the arts supplement that they completed along with their application to CWRU. Potential music or music education majors who have not yet been accepted to the major should contact Eric Charnofsky, Coordinator of Undergraduate Enrollment in Music, at 216.368.0624 or eric.charnofsky@case.edu to schedule an audition.

     

    All new music and music education majors will take a placement test in music theory during new student orientation. The first music theory course assignment will be determined from the score on this test. Students are encouraged to prepare for the test using the resources listed at music.case.edu/incoming-students/music-theory-placement-exam.

     

    The music department also offers a minor (15 credit-hours) in music, which students can pursue without an audition.

     

    All CWRU students are welcome to participate in music ensembles. There are many opportunities, from large instrumental and vocal groups to smaller chamber groups. A full list of groups can be found at music.case.edu/ensembles. Most Department of Music ensembles require auditions, which will be held during the first week of classes. Interested students should contact the appropriate ensemble director via email or attend the first class meeting.

     

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. Students will be registered for applied lessons (MUAP 121) during new student orientation after instructor assignments have been made in consultation with the Cleveland Institute of Music faculty.
    2. Most ensembles in the department of music require permission. To gain entry into any ensemble the student must audition for placement. Once audition results are posted, each student will be cleared to register for the appropriate course.
    3. Students may become eligible for MUDE 101 based on the results of the music theory placement test given during orientation. MUDE 101 and 102 satisfy the College of Arts and Sciences physical education requirement.
    4. Students planning to pursue the BA music major must take a MUTH, MUAP, and MUEN course in their first semester. Students pursuing the BS music education major will also take an introductory MUED course their first semester. Students pursuing a double-major or dual-degree should use slots four and five below for other required courses.

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. PHIL 101 is a prerequisite for most upper-level PHIL courses and provides an introduction to basic themes and some important figures in the history of philosophy (primarily Western). Students in PHIL 101 gain confidence reading philosophical material and writing argumentative or interpretive papers about this material.
    2. PHIL 201 is an introduction to logic. It is more like a math course than some other philosophy courses, in that it emphasizes the ability to symbolize statements and arguments.
    3. Both PHIL 101 and 201 are required for the philosophy major.
    4. Students may benefit from reviewing course offerings in other areas depending on the nature of their interest in philosophy. Students with an interest in the sciences and philosophy of science could also take a course in the history of science and technology or in cognitive science. The religious studies department offers cross-listed courses in nonwestern philosophy in addition to those available through the philosophy department. World history may be of interest.
    5. The study of philosophy is good preparation for a career in medicine and will deepen the student’s understanding of science and ethics. Basic sociology and anthropology courses are helpful for those interested in law or medicine.
    6. Students interested in pursuing graduate school in philosophy or another humanities discipline are strongly encouraged to begin or maintain study in a foreign language.
    7. Students planning to pursue a philosophy major are advised to leave sufficient time in their schedule for reading and taking notes on difficult texts in their major classes and to take courses that will develop their reading and writing skills, as well as general knowledge of the world and its cultures. Students should make an effort to attend outside talks and events sponsored by the philosophy department.

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. Students who have credit for the MATH, CHEM, and/or PHYS courses recommended for the fall semester may enroll in the next course in the sequence or take another course of interest (possibly for a second or alternate major).
    2. CHEM 105/106 is the usual chemistry sequence for BA/BS physics majors but, if there is any possibility that a student might pursue a major in engineering, including engineering physics, the student should instead take CHEM 111 / ENGR 145 to fulfill core requirements for the Case School of Engineering.
    3. Most physics majors take the ENGR 131 MATLAB-based computer programming course either their first or second semester. However, students who are considering a major or minor in computer science or computer engineering or an engineering physics major with a concentration in computer science or engineering should instead take the JAVA-based EECS 132 course.
    4. PHYS 166 - Physics Today and Tomorrow is a one-credit pass/no pass course designed to give first-year students a sense of what physicists actually do in their careers, with introductions to a variety of topics at the frontiers of science. This has a very different purpose from PHYS 121/122/123/124. PHYS 166 might be of interest to any CWRU first year student. It is not required, but is strongly recommended for students thinking of majoring in physics.
    5. Students should not start PHYS 121 unless they have completed a year of high school calculus and/or have credit for MATH 121. SIS does not include this as a prerequisite only because it cannot check high school records. If this leads to a delay in starting physics compared to the suggested schedule, a student can catch up in the second year or even earlier, by taking physics over the summer.
    6. Students who are invited to take the enhanced physics courses, PHYS 123/124, should consider accepting the invitation, even if it means forfeiting AP/IB credit for PHYS 121. Note, however, that these enhanced courses are NOT required and are not necessarily better options for all students.
    7. BA physics majors must complete an approved two-course non-physics science sequence. This is commonly done with CHEM courses but ASTR, BIOL and EEPS courses are options, too.

    Schedule development recommendations:

    1. Although the introductory courses—POSC 109, 160, and 172—provide useful foundations for upper-level courses, students are not required to take them before taking 300-level courses. Courses labeled as "Departmental Seminars" fulfill a SAGES requirement and should normally not be taken during the first year. Most courses are appropriate for first-year students in the second semester. See the course description to determine whether or not a course is a Departmental Seminar.

    1. There are several good ways into the Religious Studies program. Many students start with RLGN 201 Interpreting Religion, which introduces the academic study of religion, important theories and methodologies, and current issues and debates in the field. Others simply begin with a 100- or 200-level course on an intriguing subject — maybe a particular religious tradition, or maybe a cross-religious theme or issue. Most of these courses also fulfill the Global and Cultural Diversity requirement.
    2. Religious studies majors will complete RLGN 201, four 100-level courses introducing four different religious traditions (two from the 150s and two from the 170s), at least four electives, and either RLGN 399 Major/Minor Seminar (the senior capstone) or RLGN 394/395 Honors Thesis. Minors simply complete RLGN 201, RLGN 399 (the senior capstone course), and three electives of their choice.

    *Students with credit for a course have the option of using that credit as a prerequisite and registering for a higher-level course or forfeiting their credit and repeating the course for a grade at CWRU. Students who choose either option may make changes to their enrollment during the first two weeks of the semester (drop/add period) should they discover that the course in which they originally enrolled is not at the appropriate level. Students may find it more manageable to change to lower-level course after beginning at the higher level.

     

     

    Schedule development instructions:

    1. Students who have earned AP, IB, or transfer credit through a 202-level language course, or who receive a 300-level placement on the foreign language placement test, may select a 300-level foreign language literature course.
    2. When considering a language to take for the world literature major, students are encouraged to take language courses that match their present and future interest in a specific national literature, especially if the student is interested in any kind of literary genre originally written in that language.
    3. Students intending to major in world literature should take WLIT 211 and 212 in sequence (fall and spring).
    4. WLIT courses are cross-listed with classics, modern languages, and cognitive science. Students may wish to explore courses in these areas based on their major/minor concentration.
    5. If intending to pursue the world literature major, students should consult with the academic representative prior to registering for spring semester to review course options based on their plan of study.
