Recommended Degree Pathway

The recommended degree path outlines a sample course plan towards graduating in four years. The path suggests taking courses in specific semesters, but there may be semesters when a course is not offered. Consult your advisor for your official degree planning. This degree path is based on the 2011-2012 university catalog.

Please be advised that in order to graduate in four years individuals must successfully complete a minimum of 15 to 18 credit hours per semester. Also, 15 credits must be in courses numbered above 2999.
