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.

Program Notes

Student must complete, with a grade of “C” or higher, six (6) credits of college level mathematics, three (3) credits of college level English literature and three (3) credits of college level English composition. Students must also complete MATH 140 and MATH 141 for entrance to the Secondary Education Option of Mathematical Sciences.

Students must complete a 3-credit course in “United States Cultures (US)” and a 3-credit course in “International Cultures (IL).”
