1 In the cognate Social Science electives, the department recommends a mix of Human Services, Criminal Justice, Political Science and Psychology electives, especially PSYC 224 - (S) Personality and Individual Differences .

2Department recommendation: The social-work internship may be taken in either the junior or senior year, or both (not to exceed a maximum of 6 credits of internship).

3 Students in the five-year College of Arts and Sciences M.B.A. program should take the series of 1-credit M.B.A. prep courses here. Students considering this CAS/MBA program must take MATH 108  and any prerequisites before the last semester of the senior year.

 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.
