General Institute Requirements (GIRs)

The General Institute Requirements include a Communication Requirement that is integrated into both the HASS Requirement and the requirements of each major; see details below.

Summary of Subject Requirements Subjects
Science Requirement 6
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) Requirement [two subjects can be satisfied by 6.3260[J] and 6.4590[J] in the Departmental Program]; at least two of these subjects must be designated as communication-intensive (CI-H) to fulfill the Communication Requirement. 8
Restricted Electives in Science and Technology (REST) Requirement [two subjects can be satisfied from among 18.03, 18.05, 18.600, and 6.1910, 6.2000, or 6.3000 in the Departmental Program] 2
Laboratory Requirement (12 units) [can be satisfied by 6.3400, 6.4900, 6.9010, or 6.9080 in the Departmental Program] 1
Total GIR Subjects Required for SB Degree 17
Physical Education Requirement
Swimming requirement, plus four physical education courses for eight points.
