  • *CS 1040   is a free choice elective and is highly recommended for academic success. If CS 1040   is chosen, 1 less hour of free choice electives will be needed.
  • *** Requires a total of 28-29 credit hours. The only required course within these hours is MATH 1152 . Choose the remaining 23-24 hours from the four lists in the program . A minimum of 8 credit hours of MATH and 8 credit hours of science (BIOL/CHEM/EASC/PHYS) must be selected. Total math and science combined must be at least 22 credit hours. The remaining 6 hours will be CS courses.
  • If chosen as part of the 23-24 hours of major electives, BIOL 2010 , BIOL 2510 , CHEM 1131 , GEOS 1004 , GEOS 1114 , PHYS 1101  and/or PHYS 2121  will count both in the major and in general education. If selected, the number of free choice electives will increase.
  • +++ The number of free choice electives required will depend on the selections made in the courses. Up to seven hours of overlap between major and general education is possible (see list in bullet above). This plan assumes no overlap.
  • 10 This course fulfills Competency 10 - Integration in the General Education program. The hours count in the major, not in general education.
  • To satisfy the General Education Assessment (GEA) Policy, students must take the GEA after they earn 60 credit hours but before earning 75 credit hours. Transfer students who have more than 60 hours earned should take the exam during their second semester at UCM. Students must achieve a passing score of 425 to meet graduation requirements. Students may register for the GEA through MyCentral. Contact UCM Testing Services (HUM 216, 660-543-4919, testingservices@ucmo.edu) for more information.
