Core Program Requirements for Bachelor's Degrees (41 - 63 credits)
The Core Program for all students pursuing a bachelor's degree consists of pre-disciplinary foundational studies, contextual and interdisciplinary studies, and post-disciplinary integrative studies. Typically, students will begin pre-disciplinary coursework their freshman year and most will complete it by the end of their sophomore year. Beginning with their sophomore year, students will move on to contextual and interdisciplinary coursework, and they will finish their undergraduate careers with the post-disciplinary integrative course work.
Many of these can be waived if the student has high enough test scores or courses that qualify.
