Important Notes About the Required Hours:
Typically, 3 hours equals one course, but that may not be true for all courses. Always check. Select the number of courses necessary to add up to the Required Hours for each category.
Please note that Selected Topics and Independent Study courses - those courses numbered xx94-xx98 - may not be used to meet any Core requirements.
For your reference, each course listed is linked to its full description elsewhere in this catalog. Always check credit hours and prerequisites, and always work with an advisor to insure that you are selecting the right courses to meet your degree plan requirements.
