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.
  • A student’s career/graduate school plans should be considered in developing an individual academic plan. Be sure to consult an adviser in this department when scheduling courses.

Program Notes

As long as two Arts (GA) two Humanities (GH) and two Social Sciences (GS) are taken across the eight semesters, the particular order in which these courses are taken is not relevant. The course series listed above is only one of many possible ways to move through the curriculum.
