The sequence of General Education courses is shown as an example only; they may be taken in any order.

General Education Policy allows a student to double count one Communications, Quantitative or Values

course as one Group A, B, or C. If using this option, take one additional Free Elective.

Students who take 40.156 rather than 53.123 cannot use 40.156 as a group C; they must take an extra

Group C in place of 53.123 and reduce the free Electives by 3.

Total credits must equal 120

Consult advisor before selecting Business Electives.

Two of the courses selected for the Major, General Education OR Free Elective must also qualify as

Diversity courses. See list of Diversity Courses and consult advisor.
