Total: 126 Credits

1 Foreign language is recommended by department.

2 In the Cognate area of 36 hours, the department requires that 12 credits be focused in one field. It should be noted that 6 credits not required by the department in the major area are added to the free area in senior year. These may be taken in any field, including Philosophy.

3 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.
