* Meets University General Education Requirement .
1 Physical Science Electives–two courses (8 hours) from chemistry, physics, geology, GEOG 131 -GEOG 132 , ESS 210 . CHEM 130  is a prerequisite/corequisite to BIOL 140 . Therefore, students who choose BIOL 130 -BIOL 140  should take CHEM 120 -CHEM 130  for their physical science electives.
2 AREC 201 (4) or ECON 201 (4) satisfies the University General Education–Social Science requirement and the major requirement for economics. If the student transfers ECON LD for 3 credits, it will satisfy the major requirement but will not satisfy the General Education–Social Sciences requirement. In these cases, the student should take two courses from the Social Science list.
3 Choose from the University General Education lists .
4 Any course not already required for the major.
