Perspectives courses are Longwood-distinctive courses and cannot be transferred from other institutions. Perspectives courses cannot be waived.
Students must complete the designated Pillar before taking the associated Perspectives course. Perspectives courses may also designate completion of an additional Pillar requirement and/or specific prerequisite courses. Perspectives courses are intended to be open to students in multiple majors; as such, prerequisite courses should not interfere with this intent. Within each major or minor, students may count no more than one course that satisfies program requirements toward the Civitae Core Perspectives requirements. This restriction does not apply to the requirements of an interdisciplinary minor. Those students pursuing Virginia educational licensure are also exempt from this restriction.
Students are required to successfully complete three Perspectives Civitae Core requirements prior to enrolling in the Symposium course. The fourth Civitae Core Perspectives requirement must be taken prior to or concurrently with the Symposium course.
