Required Studies (see content area)

There are no prerequisite course requirements beyond the subject specific upper-level preparation listed. A major usually requires at least 36 upper-division (300/400-level) quarter hours, a minor a minimum of 24 term hours. While there is some flexibility in these, the application process is competitive with an emphasis on academic preparedness. Admitted students who have the equivalent of a minor may qualify for a Second Subject Endorsement.

If you believe you meet these requirement through alternative course work, and would like to request an Advisor Review, you can email a spreadsheet with a breakdown of courses you have taken or plan to take and a copy of your transcript. Reviews will not be accepted after December 15.
