For students entering Wharton in fall 2017 or later

The table below includes the more common courses that satisfy the Cross-Cultural Perspectives (CCP) and General Education Distribution (Gen Ed)—Humanities (H); Natural Sciences, Math, and Engineering (NSME); Social Science (SS); Uncategorized/Flex Gen Ed Only (FGE)—courses offered at Penn. If you cannot find a particular course on the list, you may submit the course for review to see if it will satisfy a requirement.  Please note the following:

  • Courses that are counting toward the Cross-Cultural Perspectives requirement may not be taken pass/fail.
  • “Yes-CDUS” in the CCP category refers to courses on U.S. cultural diversity. Students may only count one CDUS course toward the Cross-Cultural Perspectives requirement.
  • Courses labeled “URE” may only be used as unrestricted electives.
  • To satisfy the General Education Distribution requirement, students must take at least 1 CU in each of the following categories: Humanities (H); Natural Sciences, Math, and Engineering (NSME); and Social Science (SS). Courses in these three categories, as well as courses labeled “FGE,” may be used to fulfill the three flexible Gen Ed requirements.
  • Students in the Management and Technology coordinated dual-degree program must take courses categorized as Social Science (SS) and/or Humanities (H) to fulfill their General Education Distribution requirements (i.e., no NSME or FGE courses).  Also, students in this program may not fulfill the Cross-Cultural Perspectives requirements with courses in the Natural Sciences, Math, and Engineering (NSME) category.
  • Students in the Nursing and Health Care Management coordinated dual-degree program must take 1 CU of Social Science and 1 CU of Humanities courses to fulfill their General Education Distribution requirements.  Also, students in this program may not fulfill the Cross-Cultural Perspectives with courses in the Natural Sciences, Math, and Engineering (NSME) category.
