General Education Core Requirements


Elective Requirements

Three Religion/Philosophy Electives


These departmental requirements (48 semester hours), with the University core (34-54 semester hours) and free electives, allow students to relate their particular interest to their preparation either for certification for: (1) graduate studies in religious, philosophical, and other professional schools (for example, law, social enterprise, public policy, and social work) or (2) entry-level management or service in a wide range of religious and human service professions.

To facilitate the unique design of their educational program, each student is assigned a departmental faculty member, who serves as academic advisor.

MAT 112 and higher level mathematics classes are assigned based on entrance and placement exams
