Major Requirements

The total number of credits required to complete the major is listed here. DARS will also calculate the number of credits you have earned toward the major and indicate how many you still need.

Major Requirements
Specific requirements for the major are listed here, often grouped in categories. Each category will indicate either a number of credits or courses needed, and will provide descriptive information as to whether the required classes just need to be at a certain level (400 level or higher) or need to be specific classes. Plusses and minuses will continue to indicate your progress in satisfying requirements. You are required to earn a 2.0 GPA in your major to graduate.
