The CEMS Core Curriculum supports the vision and mission of the University of Vermont and the objectives of the various programs in CEMS. The table below shows the courses approved for students to fulfill their Arts & Humanities (AH) and Social Science (SS) core electives as well as courses approved to fulfill the General Education (GenEd) requirement in Engineering programs.

CE, EENV, BIOM, and EE students starting in 2020-2021 Catalogue are required to complete 3 cr. Arts & Humanities (AH) and 3 cr. Social Science (SS).
