University Requirements:


College Requirements:


Some Major Requirements satisfy University and College requirements.

Second Writing Requirement:


A Second Writing Requirement  approved by the College of Arts and Sciences. This course must be taken after completion of 60 credit hours, completed with a minimum grade of C-, and the section enrolled must be designated as satisfying the requirement in the academic term completed.

Foreign Language:


  • Completion of the intermediate-level course (107,112, or 202) in an ancient or modern language with minimum grades of D-.
    • The number of credits (0-12) needed and initial placement will depend on the number of years of high school study of foreign language.
      • Students with four or more years of high school work in a single foreign language, or who have gained proficiency in a foreign language by other means, may attempt to fulfill the requirement in that language by taking an exemption examination  through the Languages, Literatures and Cultures Department.

College Breadth Requirements:


If the grade earned is sufficient, a course may be applied toward more than one requirement (e.g., Breadth and Major Requirements), but the credits are counted only once toward the total credits for graduation. Three credits in each category below can be used to fulfill the University Breadth requirement.

Understanding and appreciation of the visual and performing arts, of aesthetic forms, designs, or craftsmanship, or of literary, philosophical, and intellectual traditions. Courses may focus on a single aesthetic form or intellectual tradition, or cross-cultural comparisons.

Understanding of the sources and forces of historical changes in ideas, beliefs, institutions, and cultures. Courses may address social, cultural, intellectual, economic, technological, artistic, scientific, and political development, changes in a discipline, or globalization and its effects.

Understanding of the behavior of individuals and social groups in the context of their human and natural environments. Courses emphasize the empirical findings, applications, and methods of the social and behavioral sciences. Three credits of this requirement are satisfied by GEOG 235  or GEOG 236  from the Major Requirements.

Understanding of fundamental and/or applied concepts and phenomena from mathematics, logic, natural or physical sciences, and technology including quantitative reasoning and methods used to approach and solve problems. Courses taken to fulfill this category (university and college breadth) must include a minimum of one course with an associated laboratory. (These credits are satisfied by Major Requirements).

 

Note:


To be eligible to student teach, Earth Science Education students must have an overall GPA of 2.50 or higher with an earth science content GPA of 2.75 or higher. The earth science content GPA is calculated from grades received in PHYS 133  and the required GEOG (or APEC), GEOL, and MAST courses. They must also pass a teacher competency test as established by the University Council on Teacher Education. Students must consult with the teacher education program coordinator  to obtain the student teaching application and other information concerning student teaching policies.

Electives:


After required courses are completed, sufficient elective credits must be taken to meet the minimum credit requirement for the degree.

Credits to Total a Minimum of 124
