Humanities and Fine Arts (HFA+) 

Courses meeting the HFA+ requirement will usually have prerequisites from Address Problems using Critical Analysis and Methods of the Humanities (HUM), Explore and Understand the Fine and Performing Arts (ARTS), or Communicate in a Language other than English (LANG). Such courses will require students to cover material in the humanities or fine arts at a deeper level than the introductory Versatility courses. Students may satisfy the HFA+ requirement by completing an introductory course in a language other than English and not previously used to satisfy the LANG Versatility requirement.
