Reading, writing, thinking, knowing, doing—making knowledge work.

We are committed to making sure you have the skills and knowledge to succeed in a career that may be characterized by many roles, often across multiple fields.

  • Arts & Humanities (9 credits)
  • Social & Behavioral Sciences (6 credits)
  • Physical & Biological Sciences (7 credits)
  • Mathematics (3 credits)
  • English Composition (6 credits)
  • General Education Electives (7+ credits)
