Because some of our courses are offered during alternate years, the proposed scheduling of courses in junior and senior years may need to be modified.  Work with an advisor to determine an individual schedule.

A minimum of 120 credits is required for graduation; at least 42 of these credits must be in courses numbered 300 and above.
