Typical Course of Study

The following shows typical pathways you might take to achieve your Bachelor of Science major. Students seeking the Bachelor of Arts major would not take the Applied Elective shown in the charts.

If you are thinking of studying abroad, it is important to plan ahead, and an early consultation with the DUS is strongly recommended so that your courses are well-timed to accommodate such study.
