Electives and Minor Programs
The general curricular plan affords the student a maximum of opportunity to design an individual degree plan that meets his or her general interests and career goals.
A student may use elective courses to strengthen his/her program and achieve higher individual educational goals. He/she may:
- Take up to 54 credits in additional courses in a major field, with the exception of certain tracks or specializations in art and music;
- Pursue in-depth study in a sequence of courses leading to a second major. See the above section, “Co-Major”;
- Build a competence in an academic field other than his/her major by taking a sequence of courses (18 to 24 credit hours), majoring a different academic department, leading to an academic minor; or
Complete miscellaneous elective credits.
Note: A student enrolled in the elementary education or the early childhood education teacher certification program is reminded that he/she must complete specific requirements appropriate to his/her first major.
