What are the “a-g” requirements used
for?
“The intent of the "a-g" subject requirements is to ensure
that students can participate fully in the first-year program
at the University in a wide variety of fields of study. The
requirements are written deliberately for the benefit of all
students expecting to enter the University, and not for
preparation for specific majors. UC faculty consider the
Subject Requirement to be effective preparation, on many
levels, for undergraduate work at the University. This
pattern of study assures the faculty that the student has
attained a body of general knowledge that will provide
breadth and perspective to new, more advanced study.
Fulfillment of the "a-g" pattern also demonstrates that the
student has attained essential critical thinking and study
skills.”
