The sequence of General Education courses is an example only; they may be taken in any order.
The number of free electives may vary depending on pre-requisite requirements and course choices.
For example, if one communications or values course is also counted as a group A or B, as allowed by
General Education Policy, then take one additional Free Elective course.
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.
