Sample schedule

This is a model three-year degree plan. Your path to graduation may vary slightly based on factors such as college credit you earned while in high school, your choice of a minor or second major, and placement in English and mathematics. Visit with your advisor to develop the plan that is right for you.

This degree program requires 18 hours toward a minor and can be completed in six regular semesters and three summer sessions. Check out the course rotation, course rotation by modalities and the evening course rotation by modalities before scheduling your classes.
