Flexible Distribution Requirements

With the goal of giving undergraduates a broad education beyond their major, Rice has established flexible distribution requirements as part of the requirements for graduation. By the time they graduate, students must take 12 hours each in the fields of humanities, social sciences and applied sciences. Rice builds flexibility into the requirements so that students have the freedom to select the courses that interest them most.
