Fulfilling Empirical & Mathematical Reasoning
Students graduating in or before 2018 will complete the current General Education requirements, with much greater flexibility in how their requirements are met. The Class of 2019 and Class of 2020 (including students who graduate in March 2019) will graduate under new requirements, which will take effect in Fall 2018, and can begin to benefit from the flexibility of these new requirements now.
Students must take a course that currently counts toward the Empirical & Mathematical Reasoning (EMR) requirement or a departmental course in Math, Applied Math, Statistics, or Computer Science. Please note that courses from these departments cannot count as Sciences courses and thus cannot be used to fulfill the Science of Living Systems or Science of the Physical Universe requirement.
When the new Quantitative Reasoning requirement takes effect, anyone who has fulfilled EMR will automatically have fulfilled the new Quantitative Reasoning requirement.
