 *Minor is required for B.A. or B.S. degree.  Physics minor is strongly suggested.
aElectives should be chosen to complete the requirement for a minor in another discipline. Students are encouraged to begin work on a minor by at least the start of the sophomore year.  Schedule electives to complete the university studies requirements and provide 120 semester hours for the baccalaureate degree.
bEGR 140 or CSC 232 may be substituted.
