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 SPCH.

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:  Psychology majors will take PSYC2201 Statistics.

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.
