2If EDUC 113 is required in the first semester, it is taken in place of a humanities elective and is counted as a GE free elective. One GE free elective in the fourth year must then be taken as a humanities elective.

3If a third math course is required, it replaces this GE elective.

4 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100  and C/IL 102 -C/IL 104 .  In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
