Because of laboratory or recitation require- ments, some courses are listed as four credit hours in this catalog. All four hours will be credited as graduation requirements, but only three hours will be credited in General Education for these courses. Students will take most General Education courses during their freshman and sophomore years, along with some courses in their major or other elective courses. While some specific courses are important to take as part of prepa- ration for a major (such as certain mathematics or science courses), the choices of which course to take in each category are decisions for stu- dents to make. Students are encouraged to choose courses that will give them the broadest possible general education and to explore and challenge themselves through their course choices. The Illinois State University General Education Program consists of a 14-course requirement out- lined as the following: Inner Core (5 courses): — a 2-course, first-year sequence integrating com- position, communication, critical thinking, and information literacy; — 1 course chosen from the inner-core mathemat- ics category; and — 2 courses chosen from a four-course natural science category or an alternative science course required by certain majors. Middle Core (5 course categories): — 5 courses, one chosen from each course category. Outer Core (4 courses; one each of four disciplines): — 4 courses, one chosen from each category. Most students not taking a course in their major or minor that satisfies the Global Studies gradua- tion requirement will also take one Outer-Core course whose content focuses on the cultures of Asia, the Middle-East, Africa, Latin America, or the indigenous peoples of the world (See Global Studies requirement). Students must comply with the following requirements: — Complete the General Education Program through completion of at least 14 courses (42 semester hours), as designated in the program description. — Students may count one General Education Middle- or Outer-Core course from their first major department or school toward the total of 14 courses. Additionally, depending on their major, students may be exempted from one General Education category (maximum of one course) because of disciplinary expertise gained in their major listed below: General Education Category Exemptions by College and Major Program: College of Applied Science and Technology AGR All major programs MC-QR CJS All major programs OC-SS FCS All major programs MC-IS HSC Clinical Laboratory Science OC-SMT Environmental Health MC-QR Health Education (students must pass Constitution Examination) MC-ICL Health Information Management OC-SMT Safety OC-SMT ITK All major programs OC-SMT KNR All major programs OC-SMT TEC Industrial Technology OC-SMT Construction Management OC-SS Graphic Communications OC-SMT Industrial Computer Systems OC-SMT Integrated Manufacturing OC-SMT Technology Education OC-SS General Education

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
