Plan to Graduate

This is the suggested plan of study to graduate in four years with a degree in Early Childhood Education.

If a student does not have three years of foreign language in high school, then 9-11 credits of a foreign language are required. Also, students must demonstrate proficiency in Math 131 or take that course in addition to a higher level mathematics course.
