General Education and Rowan Experience

All Mechanical Engineering majors are required to fulfill the General Education / Rowan Experience requirements of a Specialized Degree Model. In this model, your Math, Science and Communications requirements are met from the required courses in the Mechanical Engineering program. Other Rowan Experience courses are met throughout your required program of study. For example, Senior Engineering Clinic II is the Writing Intensive (WI) course and Freshman Clinic I is the Rowan Seminar (RS) course. You need to choose 15 credits of General Education courses (typically five courses that are 3 credits each) that meet the following criteria:

  • Two (6 credits) History Humanities Language (HHL) courses
  • Two (6 credits) Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) courses
  • One (3 credits) Artistic and Creative Expression (ACE) course
  • One of the above General Education courses must be a Multicultural/Global (listed as M/G or MCUL) course
  • One of the above General Education courses must be a Literature-based (LIT) course.
  • A course can be designated as both LIT and MCUL (e.g. ENGL02.112, Readings in Asian Lit) which will meet both criteria, but you still have to take 5 (five) courses.

Double counting of HHL, SBS, and ACE courses is not permitted. If a course meets the requirements of two categories (e.g., HHL and ACE), you must use it in one or the other. Therefore, you will still need to take 5 courses (15 credits).
