Additional Notes

Academic Advising Notes: Effective Fall 2009

- A minimum of 120 credits is required to graduate.
- General Education area requirements - GWS, GHA, GQ, GN, GA, GH, GS codes - are interchangeable in order. In any given semester, students may choose general education courses based on preference, availability, and academic goals, as long as students eventually meet the minimum credits required in these different areas.
- One course in either the first or the second semester must be chosen from among those designated as First-Year Engagement sections.
- Both US (United States Cultures) and IL (International Cultures) courses must be completed within the degree requirements. These courses double-count with other major, Gen Ed, or BA requirements, except that they may not also be used to fulfill the Other Cultures (BA) requirement.

Program Notes: The course series listed above is only one of many possible ways to move through the curriculum. A student’s career/graduate school plans should be considered in developing an individual academic plan. A proposal which establishes this academic plan must be completed between 60-80 credits. Only students with less than 91 credits, completed in prior majors or at other institutions, will be considered for entrance to this major. Both proposal and scheduling for all students must be done in accordance with Program Coordinator.
