Skip to Recommended Four-Year Plans 2021 - 2022 site navigationSkip to main content

This recommended four-year plan is designed to provide a blueprint for students to complete their degrees within four years. These plans are the recommended sequences of courses. 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 degree completion may take longer. Three writing intensive courses are required in the major and/or school core (examples are marked by WI designation in the plan below). Consult with your advisor for specific details.

NOTE: This recommended Four-Year Plan is applicable to students admitted into the major during the 2021-2022 academic year.
