Assumptions:

  • Global Miami Plan (GMP) Foundation courses (FSW 261 counts as GMP 2C and major requirement; STA 261 counts as GMP 5 requirement and major requirement)
  • Thematic sequence (9 credits)

Note:

  • This plan makes several assumptions and should NOT be construed as a substitute for academic advising.
  • All requirements are subject to change.
  • Students must earn 124 semester hours and complete all requirements in order to graduate.

Key:

FSW = Family Science and Social Work
