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.

It might depend on the school, but I know that at the University of Nevada, they do not accept religious classes for their behavioral science requirement.

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.

Give em a call. They're still in the office, probably.

And yeah, the overlap between "ethnicity" and "religion" is very strongly correlated in many instances. You might be able to convince the dean.

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:

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!
