The courses in a cognate are related in a topical, thematic, interdisciplinary, sequential, or other such fashion, so that completion of a cognate provides coherent depth of knowledge in the area. Students must take three cognates: Arts & Humanities (A&H) People & Society (P&S) Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) As a first semester freshman, we recommend you choose a course in the “Arts and Humanities cognate.” To read more about cognates, go to
