Additional Notes

- GWS, GQ, GHA, GN, GA, GH, and GS are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
- 3/6/9 rule allows students to vary number of credits in GA, GH and GS requirements.
- W is the code used to designate courses that satisfy University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

RAP sheets do not replace, and are subordinate to, the official university degree audit. Minimum of 120 credits required.  Consult with an adviser when scheduling courses.

[1] Students must complete three (3) credits of United States Cultures (US) and three (3) credits of International Cultures (IL) as part of General Education.
[2] MATH 110 or 140 required for graduation requirements. MATH 22 or higher required for Entrance-To-Major requirements.
[3] See internship coordinator for more information.
[4] Student who take MKTG 450W as an elective and earn a B or higher can count it toward MKTG 500 in the MBA program at Great Valley.  MKTG 330 and MKTG 342 are pre-reqs to MKTG 450W.  Completing STAT or SCM 200 with a B or higher satisfies a pre-program requirement.
[5] Typically, MKTG 400-level courses will include either MKTG 422 (advertising) or 441 (sustainable marketing), and either 445 (international mktg) or 480 (social media marketing).
