Other Degree Requirements

In addition to the major program requirements, every student must also complete the University’s baccalaureate degree requirements such as:

  • American Government and Institutions (PLSI 2 )
  • General Education Requirements (48 units)
  • Multicultural and International (MI)
  • Upper-division Writing
  • Sufficient Elective Units to Meet Required Total Units (varies); it is recommended that units in this area be utilized to complete a second major or minor.

A full description of the University’s graduation requirements can be found in the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements 

Total Units: 120*

*General Education, MI, and Upper-division Writing courses can be double counted with major requirements. These courses include CHEM 3A  (Area B1), MATH 11  (Area B4), and NUTR 53  (Area E). See advisor for details.

Advising Notes

  1. Students should contact the program coordinator to schedule an academic advising appointment each semester. Since many courses are sequential in nature, it is important for new, transfer, or returning students to contact the program coordinator one semester prior to intended enrollment. Note: A minimum 2.3 GPA is required for on campus entry of the department options.
  2. CR/NC grading is not permitted for courses included in the major and additional requirements, except work experience (FSC 193I  ; FSM 193I  ; and NUTR 193I  ).
  3. Grade Policy - all courses listed under major and additional requirements require a grade of C or better.
  4. General Education courses designated as required by the department are prerequisite to many courses in the program of study.
