Skip to Recommended Four-Year Plans 2020 - 2021 site navigationSkip to main content

The recommended four-year plan is designed to provide a blueprint for students to complete their degrees within four years. Students must meet with their Major Advisor to develop a more individualized plan to complete their degree.  This plan assumes that no developmental courses are required.  If developmental courses are needed, students may have additional requirements to fulfill which are not listed in the plan and may extend degree completion.

NOTE: This recommended Four-Year Plan is applicable to students admitted into the major during the 2020-2021 academic year.
