Other Graduation Requirements


The Major

Course work devoted to one or more majors provides opportunity for students to acquire significant understanding of a discipline's concepts, theories and principal paradigms. The major(s) also provides a mechanism for understanding and interpreting a broad range of ideas and empirical phenomena.


Electives are courses available to students outside of the major which provide opportunities for intellectual exploration. Such courses may be taken at any time during the undergraduate years and count toward the total number of semester hours needed to graduate.
