General Education Requirements

Preamble

The University of Montana-Missoula's General Education Program provides a broad academic base that supports both undergraduate learning at the University of Montana-Missoula and continued learning following graduation. While the General Education Program offers students considerable flexibility in selecting courses, it has a set of common educational objectives for all students.

In accordance with the mission of the University of Montana-Missoula, these objectives are to develop competent and humane individuals who are informed, ethical, literate, and engaged citizens of local and global communities. Students should become acquainted with issues facing contemporary society, participate in the creative arts, develop an understanding of science and technology, cultivate an appreciation of the humanities, and examine the history of different American and global cultures. Upon completion of the general education requirements students should be able to articulate ideas orally and in writing, understand and critically evaluate tangible and abstract concepts, and employ mathematical and other related skills appropriate to a technologically focused society.

In summary, the General Education Program is designed to provide a high quality intellectual foundation that accommodates all UM students whether in liberal arts or professional programs. This foundation will be reinforced, expanded, and refined as students continue through their course of study. Students are encouraged to prepare for productive roles in their chosen fields by cultivating civic awareness vital to the greater community and a democratic society. The acquired skills will allow students to examine critically the human experience and achieve genuine confidence in their knowledge and abilities. For the General Education Program to accomplish its goals, students must assume primary responsibility for their growth and education.

General Education Requirements

Overview

To earn a baccalaureate degree, all students must complete successfully, in addition to any other requirements, the following General Education Requirements. Students who have completed an approved lower-division general education program at an approved Montana institution of higher education should refer to the catalog section on General Education for Transfer Students.

All General Education courses must be at least 3 credits, must be introductory and foundational, and have no more than one pre-requisite. The General Education Committee may allow exceptions for upper-division courses, courses fewer than three credits, and for courses with more than one pre-requisite, if the proposing unit can justify such an exception.

Some courses may satisfy both the "Writing Course" requirement (1.2) and one of the Groups IV through XI.

Some courses may satisfy both Group II and Group III Symbolic Systems.

Some courses may satisfy both Group IX and one of the Groups IV through VIII.

Some courses may satisfy both Group X and one of the Groups IV through VIII. No course may satisfy both Group IX and Group X.

Many of the general education courses listed below require prerequisites be met before registration. The prerequisites are listed in the individual course descriptions.

NOTE! ***All courses taken to satisfy General Education Requirements must be taken for a traditional letter grade and must be passed with a grade of C- or better***.

Students are cautioned that approved courses may change from year to year. To be used for General Education credit, a course must be listed as approved in the Class Schedule for the semester a student registers for it.

Group I: Writing

Requirements

Students must satisfy the following three requirements in order:

  1. Introductory College Writing;

  2. Intermediate College Writing;

  3. Advanced College Writing

Introductory College Writing

Students must complete WRIT 101, WRIT 201, or an equivalent composition course with a grade of C-minus or better. Students with Language and Composition AP scores of 4 or better are exempted from this requirement.

Entering students who are placed into WRIT 095, based on their standardized test scores, must successfully complete WRIT 095 prior to enrolling in WRIT 101 or WRIT 201. Such students may challenge their placement with specific scores from the University Writing Assessment. Entering student who place into WRIT 201 may choose to take WRIT 101 instead.

Intermediate and Advanced College Writing

To fulfill the General Education requirements for college writing students must pass one Intermediate College Writing course with a grade of C-minus or better, and also one Advanced College Writing course with a grade of C-minus or better (in this order, if possible). Students may not use the same writing course to meet both the Intermediate College Writing and the Advanced College Writing requirement. The courses satisfying the Advanced College Writing requirement differ according to the student's major. Students should examine the course catalog for the specific courses that fulfill the writing requirements and consult with their advisor. The courses satisfying either the intermediate or the advanced writing requirements are listed in separate course catalog tables below.

Hours

Correction to the previous Catalog (2017-2018): The above section Intermediate and Advanced College Writing takes effect only in the current 2018-2019 Catalog, but mistakenly appeared already in the 2017-2018 Catalog. In the 2017-2018 Catalog, the section Intermediate and Advanced College Writing should be replaced with the two sections Intermediate College Writing and Advanced College Writing from the 2016-2017 Catalog.

Intermediate Writing Courses

The following courses are designated as Intermediate Writing Courses for this catalog year. Students are cautioned that courses may change from year to year. To be used for General Education, a course must be listed as Intermediate Writing in the catalog and in the Class Schedule for the semester a student registers for it.

Group II Mathematics

Mathematical literacy implies an appreciation of the beauty of mathematics, an ability to apply mathematical reasoning, and an understanding of how mathematics and statistics are used in many arenas. Mathematical literacy may be attained through the study of the properties of numbers, mathematical modeling, geometry, data analysis and probability, with the overarching goal of learning mathematical reasoning and problem solving.

Mathematical literacy cannot be achieved in a single course. However, for the purposes of general education, the mathematical literacy requirement can be met by any one of the following:

  1. achieving a grade of C- or better in one of the following courses which address different aspects of mathematical literacy:

    or a mathematics course of 3 or more credits for which one of these is a prerequisite.

  2. achieving a score of 50 or better on the CLEP College Algebra Test, the CLEP College Precalculus Test, or the CLEP College Mathematics Test.

  3. passing the Mathematical Literacy Examination administered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences. To qualify to take the Mathematical Literacy Examination, a student must have achieved a score of 630 or better on the SAT Math exam or a score of 28 or better on the ACT Math exam. A student may take the Mathematical Literacy Examination only once. Further details are available from the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

Students must complete the mathematical literacy requirement by the time they have earned 30 credits; if not, they must register for a mathematical sciences course every semester until they have completed the requirement. Because many other courses at the university assume some mathematical literacy, it is strongly recommended that all students complete their mathematical literacy requirement as soon as possible.

Upon completion of the mathematical literacy requirement, a student will be able to effectively apply mathematical or statistical reasoning to a variety of applied or theoretical problems.

Group III: Modern and Classical Language

The study of foreign language is a core component of a liberal arts education. Students must complete the first-year sequence of a language or demonstrate comparable proficiency to fulfill the General Education language requirement (test-out provisions apply).

The language requirement can be met in any of the following ways:

  1. by achieving a C- or better in a second-semester language course offered at the University of Montana (see list of courses below);

  2. by achieving a grade of C- or above in a language course numbered 201 or above at the University of Montana (see list of courses below);

  3. by presenting a transcript record of completion with a grade of C- or better of a second- semester (or more advanced) language course at an accredited college or university;

  4. by achieving an appropriate score on a placement exam administered by the offering department;

  5. by receiving verification of an appropriate level of proficiency in any other natural language in collaboration with the department of World Languages and Cultures. Note that the student's native language, if it is not English, can be used to fulfill this requirement.

Upon completion of the Modern and Classical Languages requirement, the student will have a basic functional knowledge of a second natural language sufficient to:

  • read and write if the language is classical, such as Latin or classical Greek;

  • speak and aurally comprehend, if the language does not have a written tradition, such as Salish;

  • perform all four skills (speaking, aural comprehension, reading, and writing) if the language is modern and has a written tradition, such as Japanese or French;

  • demonstrate both receptive (visual comprehension) and expressive (manual production) proficiency if the language is American Sign Language.

The courses listed below require prerequisites be met before registration. The prerequisites for the following courses are listed in the individual course descriptions.
