If someone chooses Humanities courses does he have to do math, physics, or biology? How much should I expect?

Building on the very practical advice from @Capt MJ: Know that the DOD SAs are essentially engineering schools wrapped in liberal arts schools — or maybe the other way around.

USMA’s roots are deep in engineering. (Many of the early grads you read about, who fought in the Mexican-American War and the Civil War, started their careers as engineers.) It’s why all grads get a B.S. degree, regardless of major.

At the same time, the SAs acknowledge that the best officers are broadly educated and widely read. You’ll take a fair amount of English and history and other liberal arts classes, to ensure that you’re a well-rounded leader who can think critically, ponder deeply and communicate clearly. That’s why publications that rank colleges list the DOD SAs among the best liberal arts colleges in the country.

Now, go immerse yourself in the website!

Thanks for answering, I come from another country and I’m still trying to understand how it works, now that I read the document I have a clearer idea of how it’s structured. If I go bad in Math for example, but I get A+ in subjects such as International relations, History and so on …
is there the possibility to take extra classes to better understand math? How penalized I would be?
I’m will be very strong in (in the sense that I’m very passionate about these subjects and/or I feel that I can do very good):

Philosophy/ ethical reasoning
Political science
International Relations
History 1/2/3
Foreign Language 1
Psychology
Constitutional/Military Law
Military Leadership
Officership
Literature
Military science 1/2/3
Composition
Physical geography

Normal in:

Foreign Language 2
Cyber 1
Cyber 2
Statistics
Economics
English Sequences 1/2/3
DPE 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9

I would struggle in:

Chemistry 1
Math 1
Physics 1
Math modeling
Biology
