1See note on Math Options

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 be taken as a humanities elective.

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

4The 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.
