WRITTEN COMMUNICATION:  ENWR1101 and 1102 will satisfy this requirement.

QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS (1MATHEMATICS SEQUENCE):  In the freshman year students are required to take either Precalculus or Calculus. The first-year course must be followed by a second mathematics course in sequence, i.e., Calculus I or Calculus II.

2HUMANITIES:  Take six credits of any course that has the prefix ENGL, HIST, HUMN, LANG, PHIL, or RELI, or the following ART courses:  ART1103, 1107, 1108, 1120, 1131, 1133, 1135, 1136, 1137, 2137, and 2238. 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.

3SPEECH/PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATION:  Requirements consist of a three-credit Speech course.

4SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES:  Take three credits of coursework in COMM, CRIM, POLS, PSYC or SOCI.  Course must be at the 2000 level or above.

5ETHICAL AND MORAL ANALYSIS:  Students must take BIOL4405 Ethics in Science to satisfy this requirement.

ART AND CULTURE:  This requirement is waived as it will be satisfied by UNIV2002 Global Issues.

SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS:  This requirement will be satisfied by CHEM1201 and 1202.


ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE COURSES:  Students may choose any ENVR course for electives.

A total of fifteen (15) marine biology credits are taken during the spring semester.

A minimum of 120 credits is required for graduation.
