Hello. I am currently getting together my letters of recommendation to start applying. Several schools require a non-science or general professor to write one. My question is what exactly constitutes a general professor. I have several professors I want to ask, including a math, psychology, sociology, and human growth and development professor. Would any of these count as a non science professor? Thank you so much for any help.

Yes, and honestly I didn't meet one of the specific requirements for a school I applied to (to have two professor LORs, and I only had one) and still got an interview invite. While I wouldn't reccomend doing that, the best option is to get LORs from people who know you best and will give schools a positive impression of you!
