University and Divisional Requirements

A minimum of 124 credit hours is required for graduation from Miami University. Total hours vary by concentration.

Double Majors

Students with two majors in the College of Engineering and Computing must take a minimum of 15 different/additional credit hours in their second major beyond the requirements of their first major.

Credit/No-Credit Requirement

All courses in chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, statistics, the business core and entrepreneurship, and those in the College of Engineering and Computing (CPB, CSE, ECE, MME, EGM, CEC) that are used to fulfill requirements of the major, must be taken for a letter grade.

Intercultural Perspectives

The Miami Plan Intercultural Perspectives Requirement is fulfilled by completing three hours in an approved Intercultural Perspectives course. This course cannot count as a Miami Plan Foundation course. A list of courses that currently meet this requirement can be found at:

Experiential Learning

The Miami Plan Experiential Learning Requirement carries no specific credit hour minimum and can be fulfilled by coursework, service learning, independent study, internships, student teaching, performance or portfolio projects. Any senior design capstone sequence in the College of Engineering and Computing meets the Experiential Learning requirement: CPB 471 and 472; CSE 448 and 449; ECE 448 and 449; MME 448 and 449.

All concentrations

At least nine credit hours from three different subject areas must be Signature Inquiry (SI)

courses. Courses with SI designations may include courses in your program, major, or the Miami Plan Perspective Areas (PA). CEC 111 and CEC 112 fulfill four of the nine required credit hours in one subject area ("CEC").
