UB Curriculum Part 2: Foundations

UB Curriculum Part 2: Foundations


(upbeat music) – The second part of the UB Curriculum is called Foundations. – Foundations are like the building blocks of your education. Courses in writing, math,
science, and diversity. – Your UB Curriculum writing requirement is called Communication
Literacy, and it has two parts. The first one is English 105, an introduction to college-level
research and writing. – The second course is
Communication Literacy II, or CL2. This is more advanced, and geared to your
specific field of study. – For example, writing
about the environment will help you to communicate
about climate change, if you plan on becoming a
scientist or an activist. – The second foundation is Math
and Quantitative Reasoning, where you’ll need to complete one course with options like calculus,
statistics, or algebra. – If you’re in a program like engineering, you may already be taking
one of these courses as part of your major. How are you? – Foundation number three is Scientific Literacy and Inquiry. You’ll find courses and
subjects like chemistry, physics, or geography among your courses. You’ll need to complete seven credits, including a one-credit lab course. – Like math, you may be
taking a science class as part of your major, and
that may meet this requirement. – The fourth foundation
is Diversity Learning, where you choose a class
to broaden your knowledge on various cultures within the U.S. – There are more than
a 100 classes offered in areas like U.S. History, Sociology, Literature,
and Political Science. – To make sure you’re enrolling in the right Foundations classes, check out the undergraduate catalog and discuss with your academic advisor.
