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 taken within 10 years of entrance to the major.

Waived courses must be replaced with an approved higher level MIS course.

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 for students admitted in or after summer 2005.
