Course Sequence Outline

Students will select courses in conjunction with an advisor, selecting core courses, major courses and electives to fit the individual student’s interests and field of emphasis. If necessary, substitutions may be made for required emphasis courses with permission of the advisor and/or department chairperson.

Freshman Year



Subsequent years will be planned in consultation with an advisor in relation to individual student’s needs and interests, including internships and study abroad programs.

A student who wishes to major in Fine Arts after the first semester of the junior year must have permission of the Fine Arts Department Chair, who will also consult with appropriate faculty in the student’s selected major area of emphasis.  Transferring late to the major may result in enrollment in additional courses in summer school and/or a later graduation date.
