A minimum of 120 credits is required for graduation. Up to 6 credits from the major and 6 credits from the minor may be applied toward the General Education requirements.
WRITTEN COMMUNICATION: This requirement consists of six credits in English Composition (ENWR1101 and ENWR1102), and six credits of writing intensive courses within the major.
SPEECH/PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATION: Requirements consist of a three-credit course that is substantially concerned with public speaking and oral presentations, typically a course in Speech.
QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS: Accuplacer will place students in the appropriate class level. Students will take MATH 1101, 1105, 1107, or 1201 to satisfy this requirement; upper level MATH-prefix courses may be substituted with prior approval from Gildart Haase School of Computer Sciences & Engineering.
MATH, TECHNOLOGY or STATISTICS: Students will take 3 credits of an upper level math course at a level higher than the course fulfilled in Quantitative Analysis: either MATH 1105, 1107, 1201, 2202, 2243, or 2337, or one of the following courses: ENGR 1301, ENGR 2286, ENGR 3000, CENG 1205/EGTC1205, CENG 1245/EGTC 1245, EGTC 3261, EGTM 2230, EGTM 2232, CSCI 1105, CSCI 1201, any CSCI courses above 1201, any INFO prefix, or PSYC 2201. Students must fulfill any applicable prerequisites for a course before taking it. In addition, they can take either MATH2337 or PSYC2201, but not both in their course of study since MATH2337 and PSYC2201 cover many similar topics.
ETHICAL AND MORAL ANALYSIS: Requirements consist of a three-credit course that is substantially concerned with ethical theories and questions. Choose course from PHIL, RELI, a course that has “ethics” in its title, or a course designated as meeting the requirement within a major program.
SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS: Requirements consist of a minimum of six credits of laboratory science from BIOL, CHEM, ENVR, MBIO, or PHYS.
LANGUAGE: If a student is beginning a new language, Elementary II (1102) is required to fulfill the 3 credit language requirement. If the student is taking a language previously studied, successful completion of Intermediate I (2103) fulfills the requirement. The student taking a previously studied language must take the placement test. If the placement score is above the Intermediate I level, the student is excused from the language requirement and will need to replace those 3 language credits with a free elective.
ARTS AND CULTURE: Take six credits of coursework in DAN, MUSIC, THEA, LANG, or any advisor approved Foreign Language, or ART1141, ART1142, ART1144, ART1151, ART1153, ART1157, ART1158, ART1159, ART1161, ART1167, ART1169, ART1181, ART1187, ART1189, ART1832, ART1841, COMM2104, COMM2210, COMM2415, COMM2103, COMM2743, COMM2745, or EPS 1201.
SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES: Take six credits of coursework in COMM, CRIM, POLS, PSYC, or SOCI. Courses may be within the same discipline or different disciplines, but either way at least one course must be at the 2000 level or above.
