Higher Standards and More Requirements

3. Higher Standards and More Requirements--Many revised general education curricula require a greater number of hours in the core and dictate more than the introductory courses.

It is clear that Millersville University has instituted higher standards in English composition, by requiring a freshman year composition course, an advanced composition course, and four writing courses. The requirement of a QARC course indicates higher standards in the area of mathematics. The additional requirement of four courses at the 200 level or above also stresses higher-level standards.
