Notes

* Modern Language: Students without prior proficiency in a foreign language should take the beginning level language sequence as prerequisite(s) for the required intermediate level foreign language sequence as LAS electives.

** International Experience requirement: After Year 1, students have variable and flexible options of study abroad, internship, or co-op. The requirement can be completed during the summer or the academic year.

*** Science with Lab: Students will satisfy this requirement by taking either a 3 or 4 credit hour lab science course. If a science course consists of a separate lecture and laboratory sections, the student MUST take both the lecture and lab portions to satisfy the requirement. The lecture section alone will not fulfill the requirement.
