As students in the College of Arts and Sciences begin assessing their academic load for the fall of 2020, many will look to find courses that "double count," or fulfill two separate College requirements: both a sector requirement and a foundational approach.

Here's a comprehensive guide to the courses that double count, based on data from Penn's College Requirements page. Remember that advance course registration opens on April 14 and ends on April 24.

Be sure to check the policies governing double counting before committing to a course.
