Every undergraduate degree program at SPSU consists of General Education courses (called CORE), major requirements, and possible electives. The CORE consists of major AREAS. AREA A is essential skills (English and Math), AREA B is institutional options (speech and science, technology & society), AREA C is humanities/fine arts (literature, and art & culture of the world), AREA D is science, math & technology (math, 2 lab science courses), and AREA E is social sciences (US history, world history, behavioral science, and cultures & societies). AREA F will list specific courses for a particular major.
In addition to the CORE, you will have major requirements, including courses in IT, CSE and CS. The current flowchart that shows the complete BSIT degree lists AREA A-F and the required courses, major courses, upper level technical electives and free electives. You must complete everything on this sheet to complete your degree. The total number of semester hours required to graduate is 120.
AREA A-E When you see several courses listed - you choose ONLY ONE from the list.
AREA F The CSE 1301 course - you MUST take the 1301 J section .
* Both lab science courses in AREA D and CSE 1301J and IT 1324 require a LAB section along with lecture.
Pre-requisites Be sure that you check ALL pre-requisites listed for courses!!!!
Upper Level You will choose only ONE "track" from the upper level technical electives - read instructions.
Free Electives You may choose ANY two courses for your electives.
Be sure to MIX your general education CORE (AREA A-E) with required major courses. You DO NOT start with AREA A and continue to AREA F - you can choose ANY Core course in ANY order you want.
Everyone will take the CSE 1002 course along with the SPSU 1001 course.
