  4. Some states require teacher certification on order to pursue a career within the school system. Interested students should check each state's requirements and consult with their major advisor.
  5. The curriculum includes primarily core courses for the freshman and sophomore years. Students often complete two major courses in the freshman year, and a consistent number of major courses thereafter. Major Courses are offered at least one time each semester with the exception of special circumstances such as faculty sabbatical.
  6. Students planning to study abroad should talk with International Programs, the Academic Advising and Support Center, and their academic advisor during their freshman or sophomore year to plan their course of study. While the department encourages students to participate in programs that they choose, coursework in the major cannot be fulfilled in the study abroad program. The department cannot guarantee the sequence or availability of courses as outlined should the student choose to study abroad.
  7. Students must complete the diversity core requirement through a designated diversity core, major, or elective course (see Diversity Core Requirement  under Curriculum and Policies).
