Degree Plans

Definitions:

  • Course Completion Checklist* - Checklists created by the advisors to more accurately show the requirements in our degrees after the recent changes in curriculum in Computer Science. These checklists include a proposed plan of study and course planning worksheet. They are excellent tools for students and advisors to use in monitoring status toward degree completion. By updating the checklist every term and noting the requirements that have been satisfied to date, students and advisors will have a clear picture of the requirements completed and those requirements needed for graduation.
  • Degree Checklist -Degree checklists are the official College of Natural Science documents that specify the courses/requirements needed for particular degree programs in a specific catalog.

*Due to the changes in curriculum, the advisors recommend you use the Course Completion Checklists to plan your classes.

Core Curriculum Options

The core requirements are designed to complement the depth and focus of a major with breadth that allowsstudents to put their major coursework into a broader intellectual context and to understand how other disciplines raise and answer important questions. The core also facilitates the exploration of prospective majors and, in some cases, serves as a foundation for more advanced coursework within the major.
