 Advanced courses

University Core Electives for Civil Engineering majors must include one of the following courses:

BGEN 242DIntro to Int'l Business3
ECNS 101ISEconomic Way of Thinking3
PSCI 210ISIntroduction to American Government3
PSCI 214ISPrinciples of Political Science3
PSCI 230DIntroduction to International Relations3

Additional requirements: 15 credits of approved professional electives at the 300 level or above. A minimum of 2 courses in civil engineering (i.e., ECIV, EENV, SRVY, EGEN) and not more than 3 courses in any one civil engineering sub-area are required. A maximum of 4 credits total from Individual Problems, Internships (max. 2 cr.), and Undergraduate Research may be counted toward professional electives. The professional electives program must contain a minimum of 2 design intensive courses (see the CE flow chart). Students must successfully complete all key courses prior to taking any professional electives. A maximum of 3 credit-hours may be included from a completed MSU minor, a prior or concurrent BS/BA degree in another major, or courses in a completed MSU Honors Program. A student may petition to include other senior or graduate level courses consistent with the degree program but not listed here (requires Academic Adviser and Department Head approval).

A minimum of 128 credits is required for graduation; 42 of these credits must be in courses numbered 300 and above.
