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. Please consult with an academic advisor in the Wharton Undergraduate Division if you have questions about new course offerings, or courses not otherwise listed. The list of approved courses will be updated occasionally.


  • 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.
