Category B- Linguistic, Literary, Artistic and Cultural Traditions
(Three Courses - 9 credit hours)

Culture is the human-made part of the environment and the spoken and written word, together with the visual and performing arts, are its foundation.  The courses required in this category are designed to acquaint the student with teh richness and diversity of these aspects of culture, especially with the recognized standards of literary and artistic excellence.  the emphasis in this category is also on the breadth and extent of the many cultural experiences and heritages which make up our world. Knowing only the traditions of our own immediate surroundings or even simply those of our country is no longer enough to function effectively in a world where contact between varied cultures and knowledge of their interaction has become normal and expected. All students completing a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) program will be required to attain intermediate level of proficiency in a foreign language. Intermediate proficiency may be satisfied by the completion of three years of a foreign language in high school, a 103-level college course in a foreign language, or satisfactory completion of an intermediate-level proficiency examination. Even if you are not completing a B.A. degree, the university encourages study of a foreign language as a means of fulfilling the requirement of this category. Foreign language study introduces students to the way language works, why words matter, and aids them in understanding more about their own language and its intricacies. Such study also fosters greater appreciation of peoples and cultures by crossing the language barrier and seeing more deeply how others live.

One course must be taken from those listed under Literature and two courses in different disciplines from those listed under Humanities.
