Following is one suggested four-year degree plan. Students are encouraged to see their advisor each semester for help with program decisions and enrollment; responsible for reviewing the Program of Study Requirements; and must meet foreign language and writing intensive course requirements for graduation. See Academic Regulations-Undergraduate.

above the level of College Algebra. MATH 1342, Introductory Statistics, strongly recommended.
