Additional Notes

Only 15 credits of General Education requirements may be applied toward major requirements.

Consult with your academic advisor on scheduling patterns for courses taught each semester.

 

Scheduling Notes: 

  • Your audit may require different courses than the Recommended Academic Plan.  This is due to recent program updates.  The following is a list of equivalent courses:

R SOC 327 = CED 427W

R SOC 417 = CED 417

AG EC 430 = CED 430

R SOC 420 = CED 420

R SOC 452 = CED 452

  • Students should take CED 152 as early in their academic plan as possible.
