Humanities
Courses in the humanities study the cultural activities and artistic expressions of human beings.  They assist in developing an awareness of the ways in which people throughout the ages and in different cultures have responded to themselves and the world around them in artistic and cultural creation, and in developing aesthetic understanding and an ability to make value judgments.  This category includes introductory or integrative courses in foreign languages, literature, philosophy, religion, and writing and reading skills.

Social Sciences
Courses in the social and behavioral sciences focus on people as members of society.  They assist in developing an awareness of the methods of inquiry used by the social and behavioral sciences.  Critical thinking is stimulated about the ways people act and have acted in response to their societies, and appreciation is developed of how societies and social groups operate.  This category includes introductory or integrative survey courses in cultural anthropology, economics, history, political science, psychology, sociology, cultural geography, and related disciplines.
