2022-2023 Cal Poly Humboldt Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Lower Division GE Area B: Physical Science


GE Area B Notes:

Where courses exceed 3 units, only 3 units count towards GE requirements.

GE requirements cannot be waived and other Cal Poly Humboldt courses cannot be substituted for approved GE courses. To fulfill a particular requirement, a course must be completed during the academic year in which the GE status is designated in the catalog. Courses that meet outcomes of more than one GE area A-F, may only be used to satisfy one of those areas.


Upon completing this requirement, students will be able to:

  • apply scientific concepts and theories to develop scientific explanations of natural phenomena
  • critically evaluate conclusions drawn from a particular set of observations or experiments
  • demonstrate their understanding of the science field under study through proper use of the technical/scientific language, and the development, interpretation, and application of concepts.
