You may not use courses with an FRE prefix to satisfy liberal studies.

For the B.S.Ed. degree, you must have the following:

  • a grade of at least B for the English foundation requirement (ENG 105 or equivalent) (If you don¿t receive a "B," you may complete an additional writing course, at the 200 level or above, with a "B" or better, to meet this requirement).
  • a grade of at least C for the mathematics foundation requirement (generally MAT 110, 114, 125, or 155)
POS 220 is required for Arizona certification, not graduation. May be waived by examination.

Students may only take lower-level FRE courses if you have not already taken advanced FRE coursework. For instance, after you've completed 200-level FRE courses, you can't take FRE courses at the 100 level; after completing 300-level courses you can't take 100 or 200 level courses.

Students must earn a grade of C or better in any course they wish to apply towards their major in French.

Progression Plans are intended to provide a general road map related to the sequencing of courses. 

For a full description of degree requirements, review the Academic Catalog.  To determine what requirements you may have already met through transfer credits, AP/IB courses, or test credits review your Academic Requirements, advisement report.

Some courses may have prerequisites and/or require appropriate placement scores in Mathematics and English.  If you do not have the appropriate placement or prerequisite courses, you may have to take more courses than are presented on the Progression Plan. 

Not all classes are offered every term so use caution when changing the sequencing of courses.
