University of Alabama debates general education curriculum, could wipe some English, humanities courses

Students at the University of Alabama could soon be required to take fewer writing, humanities and history courses as faculty vote on a major change to general education requirements this week.

The new proposed curriculum, projected to roll out in the fall of 2025, is shaved down by about 16 credit hours, expands math options and reduces the amount of writing, fine arts, history and literature courses that are currently required. Students also will no longer have to complete a foreign language requirement if they took similar courses in high school.
