HSSEAS general education (GE) requirements:

(a) English Composition 3, which must be completed with a minimum grade of C by the end of the second year of enrollment at UCLA(this requirement may be satisfied by a score of 4 or 5 on the English Language and Composition or English Literature and Composition AP Exam);

(b) one 4-unit engineering ethics course chosen from Engineering 183EW (formerly 183) or 185EW (formerly 185) (or BIOENGR 165EW for BE majors);

For those students that are following the 2005-2006 and later catalogs (2006-07, 2007-08 etc), where Writing II is required, completing ENGR 183EW (formerly 183) or ENGR 185EW (formerly 185) will satisfy the Writing II Requirement and you no longer need to take an additional "W" Writing II course.  This is also the case for students that had previously completed ENGR 183EW (formerly 183) or 185EW (formerly 185).  *Bioengineering majors who complete Bioengineering 165 before F08 will also be granted Writing II credit. Writing II credit for Bioengineering 165 taken F08 or later is still under review. No petitions are required.

(c) at least 24 units of coursework in the Foundations of Knowledge described below:

Foundations of Knowledge

General education courses are grouped into three foundational areas: Foundations of the Arts and Humanities, Foundations of Society and Culture, and Foundations of Scientific Inquiry.

Five courses (24 units minimum) are required. One of the five courses must be an approved Writing II course - (W) denotes a Writing II course.

Writing II credit for Bioengineering 165 taken F08 or later is still under review. No petitions are required.

* Courses marked with an asterisk are listed in more than one category but can fulfill GE requirements in only one of the cross-listed categories
