1The Department recommends that students enroll in PS 110  in order to satisfy First Year Oral Communication and First Year Digital Technology requirements.

2Select PPS electives from the following: PS 110 , PS 135 , PS 216 , PS 231 , PS 241 , PS 318 , PS 319 , PS 325 , and PS 339 .

*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 an advisor in the Advising Center if you have any questions.
