In addition, students must complete the following required courses:

  • Natural Science Distribution Electives (2 courses, at least one with lab; typically satisfied in 1st or 2nd year)
  • HSS Distribution Electives (satisfy distribution categories: foreign language, fine arts, literature, humanities, social sciences; typically satisfied in 1st through 3rd years)
  • General Requirements (non-European cultures and Race Relations & Ethnicity; some courses also fulfill HSS Distribution requirements; typically satisfied in 1st or 2nd years)
  • Approved Minor (usually ~6 courses; some courses also fulfill HSS Distribution requirements; be careful not to start your minor too late, as there may be prerequisite dependencies in courses required for the minor; typically taken in 2nd through 4th years)

We recommend 14-17 credits per semester, in order to graduate in 8 semesters.
