Fulfilling Empirical & Mathematical Reasoning
Students graduating in or before 2019 will complete the current General Education requirements, with much greater flexibility in how their requirements are met. The Classes of 2020 and 2021 (including students who graduate in March 2020) will be transitioned into the new program, which will take effect in Fall 2019, and can begin to benefit from the flexibility of these new requirements now. Any requirements fulfilled in the current program will count toward requirements in the new program.
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 can fulfill either EMR or the Science of Living Systems or Science of the Physical Universe requirement, but not both.
When the new Quantitative Facility requirement takes effect, anyone who has fulfilled EMR will automatically have fulfilled the new Quantitative Facility requirement.
