Gen Ed and Global Course Search

For students who entered Wharton prior to fall 2017

The table below includes the more common Global Environment and General Education Distribution – Social Structures (SS); Language, Arts & Culture (LAC); Science & Technology (SandT) – courses offered at Penn, but it is not an exhaustive list. 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.


  • Courses that are counting toward the Global Environment requirement cannot be taken pass/fail.
  • Students in the Management and Technology, Nursing and Healthcare Management, and Life Sciences and Management coordinated dual-degree programs may only take liberal arts (non-business) courses to fulfill the Global Environment requirement.
