Assumptions

  • Student has earned at least 30 semester hours (AP, Post Secondary, Transfer, IB, etc.), most of which apply to the Global Miami Plan Foundation and College of Arts and Science Divisional requirements
  • Student has earned prerequisite credit or appropriate placement score for 2nd year of foreign language
  • Student has earned credit for one year of College Chemistry and MTH 151, MTH 251  or STA 261 (or equivalents)

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 complete all requirements in order to graduate.
  • Please be aware that some GLG courses are only offered in the fall, and others in the spring; attention must be paid to the pre-requisite structure of these courses.
  • Several thematic sequences could be completed using courses required for the major (e.g., MTH, PHY); this might result in additional elective hours.
  • GLG Field course will be completed in final summer term.

Key

CAS = College of Arts and Science Divisional Requirements
