Additional Notes

General Education Notes:

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

This is a recommended academic plan and degree requirements for the major (and options) may change periodically.  Students should consult with their academic advisor at least once a semester to select appropriate courses and to keep abreast of new degree requirements and course offerings.
