Sample Four Year Plan

There are hundreds of courses that satisfy various L&S Degree Requirements, and courses can double-count towards more than one requirement. The sample below assumes no high school Foreign Language was taken and that the student placed into college-level Math and English. In addition, this sample reflects the degree requirements for students who began their college education in Fall of 2013 or later. If you started college coursework prior to Fall of 2013, your degree requirements may be different.

This sample shows one possible pathway to earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in four years. This plan does not replace the advice of your Global Studies advisor or your College Undergraduate Advisor. You are cautioned to meet regularly with both to create a personalized plan that matches your particular circumstances rather than following this verbatim.
