NOTE: Florida State University requires one foreign language through the first semester of the second year (e.g., Second-Year Spanish I) which will also fulfill the Area II Humanities requirement. If you had two years of a single foreign language in high school, you may be able to begin the second year, first semester foreign language. See your foreign language instructor for details and permission. Florida State University also requires SPC1608, Introduction to Public Speaking. FSU requires psychology students to take STA2122. If you have taken the required six hours of mathematics for the AA at Gulf Coast and have not taken this course, FSU will give you upper level credit for the course when you complete it.  FSU also requires a diversity course, such as LIT 2380 Women in Literature.
