As students in the College of Arts and Sciences begin assessing their academic load for the spring of 2021, 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 Nov. 30 and ends on Dec. 7.
