Additional Notes

Advising Notes

  • GWS, GQ, GA, GH, GS, GN and GHA are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements. All students are required to take one IL and one US course before graduation. A course designated as US;IL may be used as a US or an IL, not both.
  • W suffix signifies the course satisfies the University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.
  • Y is the code to designate Writing-intensive courses that are approved Intercultural and International Competence or United States and/or International Cultures.

Program Notes

Courses required for the major must generally be completed within 10 years of entrance into the major.

Students must complete a 3-credit course in “United States Cultures (US)” and a 3-credit course in “International Cultures (IL).” B A 364Y (US/IL) may be used to meet either the IL or US requirement, but may be used to fulfill only 3 of the 6 credit requirement.
