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 52.123 rather than 40.156 may use 40.256 as the Quantitative Gened; 53.123 then

counts as a Group C. Take an additional Free Elective if using this option. Total credits must equal 120

Always 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
