Undergraduate Programs

The degree requirements for each program are presented in the same format. There are course requirements in three broad areas: Core Curriculum, program major, and electives. Each program will recommend specific courses to be used in meeting core curriculum requirements. Under major requirements, each program lists the required major preparatory courses, major core courses to be taken by all students, and major related courses. The related courses section defines options or concentrations within the major. Elective requirements vary by program but all students are required to complete six hours of advanced electives.
