Notes:

  • You do need a minor with this program.
  • This program automatically provides for only 15 credit hours of upper division coursework. This means that you will need to select at least some of your electives at the 300-400 level. Keep in mind that you will need 45 upper division credits for graduation.
  • There is time for you to take some of your general education electives later in your studies if you wish.
  • If you are planning on taking FS 270 as an elective, you should limit your credit hours for that semester to 13.
  • Be sure to take three diversity courses, one of which has to be a racial issues course.
