Does religious classes = behavioral science for requirements?

      Yeah, I'd definitely ask the school. But I imagine many/most of them go by AACOMAS classifications.

      Bah that sucks. Schools keep differing on what they'll take for behavioral sciences. For example, LECOM takes philosophy.

      I already expected having to take another behavioral science course next semester though. I was just daydreaming during another class today and remembered a class on eastern religions that I took like three years ago, and was wondering if I could use it.


      Can someone explain to me how "Ethnic studies" counts as behavioral science but religion does not? If I took a course on judism would that count as ethnic studies? It would certainly seem to in Israel. This category is just so subjective.

        Title says it all. I'm specifically wondering about lecom-erie but this can apply to other schools as well. It would be kickass if it did.

        I took enough religious classes to have a minor in religious studies, but LECOM was hesitant to even suggest they MIGHT count them. Shoot, I took a leadership development course and LECOM was hesitant to accept it. :smuggrin:

          Religious studies courses are awesome. I woulda been a minor if I had realized it sooner...

            As a fellow engineer, I feel your pain. If I get into LECOM and accept it, I will have to hurry up and finish 6 credits of this stuff. I will be doing it online or IDL, I refuse to drive an hour each to the U for this stuff.

              Probably.

              I got a few women's studies classes to count as behavorial science. It just took a phone call to get it done.

              Same here, I had to make a few phone calls to get some random class of mine to count - you may need to submit the syllabus of the class to specific school. A lot of these schools understand the behavioral science req. can be hard to fulfill and will work with you to satisfy it!
