    (Both Day and Extended Day students are required to take CEP 121.  Extended Day students may take CEP 201 or an unrestricted elective course.)   
       
    Unrestricted Elective: 3 credits1   
       
    *Introductory Cluster Requirement   
    An introductory cluster containing four courses with an Integrated Seminar (LIB 110, one credit) is required for all DAY students; students must take the Cluster during 12-week session when they take ENG 101.  Extended Day students and students who change to Liberal Arts major after completing ENG 101 may substitute a Liberal Arts elective.  
       
    Total Credits:  60 
       
    ** To be chosen by the student in consultation with a faculty advisor.  
    *** MAT 115 is a prerequisite for MAT 200.  
    1 One of your elective courses in the categories above must be an Urban Study course.  NOTE: BTN 195, SCN 195 & HUN 245 are non-liberal arts Urban Study courses, and, if chosen, will only apply to the Unrestricted Elective category (all other Urban Study courses will satisfy the requirements of the 1 categories above)  
    2 If LIB 110 is not taken as part of the English cluster requirement, students may substitute any Liberal Arts elective credit (e.g., he/she may take LRC103 or may use a liberal arts credit that was transferred in--or taken--that is "not counted" towards the degree).  Note: The LIB110 box on DegreeWorks will never be checked off, but the Registrar's Office will automatically substitute the one liberal arts credit when evaluating the student's transcript for graduation.  Students do not need a waiver.
