Yes, you must take LSP 121, UNLESS one of the following situations applies to you:
There is an equivalency test for LSP 121 that students can take, but unless they have a fairly advanced background in computer programming, they are unlikely to "pass out" of LSP 121. For more information on the QRTL II (LSP 121) equivalency exam, please go to the Quantitative Reasoning Center (click on "placement", then click "LSP 121" tab. Use the link labeled "LSP 121 Placement Exam Study Guide.")
PLEASE NOTE: Non-Honors students who take both LSP 120 and LSP 121 may "waive" one of their Liberal Studies program Learning Domain courses OTHER THAN the Scientific Inquiry: Lab course. Please note, however, that all students must take at least one course in each Learning Domain. So, for example, a student who is using a Modern Language Option course as a substitute for one of the two "Philosophical Inquiry" domain courses cannot also use the LSP 121 waiver to substitute for the other required course in that domain.
All students must take some kind of Junior Year Experiential Learning (JYEL) course as a degree requirement. Students can fulfill this requirement in a number of ways, including through the following:
Note: You can identify specific JYEL-eligible courses offered each quarter through the Campus Connect enrollment system. (Set the filter in the "Liberal Studies Requirement" field to "Junior Year Experiential Learning.")
Students are encouraged to fulfill their JYEL requirement during their junior year, but some students may complete this requirement in the sophomore or senior year. Please speak with your advisor about the best options for you. Visit the Junior Year Experiential Learning site for further information.
