Advising Notes:

  1. Under Natural Sciences and Mathematics (20 credits minimum), students should take BIOL103 and BIOL104, MATH108 and MATH214 to maximize transfer credit in this major.  Math below MATH108 will not transfer into this major.  Students are also encouraged to complete CHEM103 and CHEM104 as additional science electives.
  2. Under Behavioral and Social Sciences (9 credits), students should choose either ECON201 or ECON202 to fulfill the economics requirement. They should use the additional 6 credits to complete 2 general education courses in the following 4 areas: American History, Western Civilization, Other World Civilization or The Arts.
  3. Under Liberal Arts Electives (9 credits) students should complete PHYS200 and PHYS201.
  4. Students should use their Free Electives (9 credits) to complete 3 GIS courses (GIS122, GIS205, and GIS220 or GIS222) to fulfill 9 credits of advanced science and math. 
  5. Students are encouraged to discuss with their faculty advisor the opportunity to take an additional course in Computing Methods, or Calculus II to transfer with junior class standing.  Students and/or Faculty Advisors should refer to the transfer articulation guidelines for proper course selection to satisfy these requirements.
