Degree Information




You need 120 credits to graduate.

In order to meet the requirements for graduation, all students are required to complete three different kinds of courses: Pathways General Education requirements (30-42 credits), major courses (30-45 credits), and free elective courses (30-60 credits).

Pathways requirements will give you broad exposure to a wide range of disciplines and will strengthen your core writing, quantitative, language, and critical thinking skills.

Major courses will provide you with in-depth learning in a single discipline and allow you to develop expertise in an area of study.

Free electives are courses you choose that might complement your major courses, allow you to explore an interest in a field outside your major, or provide you an opportunity to strengthen key skills.
