Distributional requirements question

<p>I found this nifty chart that lists the requirements for promotion:</p>

<p>Distributional</a> Requirements Chart | Yale College</p>

<p>To be promoted to your junior year, you need 1 credit in every category. If I were to take a Humanities course that is also WR, would I get 1 credit in both categories, or only one of them?</p>

<p>I was just wondering the same thing while perusing the Blue Book! I'm hoping someone can give us an accurate answer to this.</p>

<p>For courses that list two distributional requirement areas, you have to choose in which area you'd like that course to provide you with credit. With your example, you'd only get a writing credit or a humanities credit (your choice) -- but not both.</p>

<p>One class can only count for one requirement, even if it falls under 2 categories. You have to pick one :)</p>

<p>Here's the official info. - see paragraph 2 under distributional requirements:</p>

<p>Got it, thanks. I figured this was the case but since they split up "skill categories" and "disciplinary areas," I was hoping they would double count :P</p>
