NOTE:  A single course may only be used to fulfill one of the core requirements as indicated by a-f.

*Students interested in veterinary, graduate or professional school are encouraged to select courses to fulfill such requirements (i.e. TUSVM requires additional courses in MATH, PHYS, BIOL, CHEM etc); but any university courses, with advisor approval, may fulfill the requirement.

aThese courses meet the Communication (oral/written) core requirement.

bFor the Creative Expression core requirement, select FIVE credit hours from the following courses - FPAR 101; MUSC 110,111,112,113,208; ENGL 205-206,207,208,220.

cThis course meets the Polical, Social, and Cultural Understanding core requirement and is required for the APSC major - Science option.

dThis course meets the Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning core requirement and is required for APSC majors; an additional math course is required for TUSVM; higher levels may be substituted.

eThe indicated courses meet the minimum core requirements for Scientific Skills and Knowledge; additional courses in BIOL, CHEM, and PHYS may also be applied to this requirement.

fFor the Computation, information and technological skills core requirement, select one of the following CSCI 205, 229, EUC 200 or SOCI 205 may substitute for CSCI 100. 

gFor the Problem Solving and Critical thinking core requirement, select one of the following PHIL 203, 205, 205,212, or 237. 

hThe indicated courses meet the minimum Historical Analysis and Understanding core requirement.

ENGL 101, ENGL 102, MATH 107, APSC courses and departmental courses require a minimum grade of "C" as well as those serving as a prerequisite for courses which require a minimum grade of "C" in pre-requsites.

APSC Select Courses - (Level 1A [3h] - APSC 302, 312, 405; Level 1B [3]- APSC 304, 401, 407; Level 2 [6h] - APSC 501, 503, 510, 521, 531, 540, 550; Level 3 - ANY APSC course, except APSC 450, not previously taken, including but not limited to, those listed in Levels 1-3 (beyond degree requirement), APSC 307, 451, 452, 505, 509).

^May be substituted for an equivalent statistics course (ie MATH 504).
