PRE-APPROVED ELECTIVES

2020-2021 Tentative Course Schedule with separate tab of Fall 2020 Pre-approved Outside Electives (look for tab heading at the top of the page).

LALS accepts approved electives from other programs and disciplines across campus to be used toward degree requirements, and we are always open to reviewing new or previously unknown courses with significant LALS content.

Majors/minors are limited to using two non-LALS courses toward their requirements, unless they receive approval for an exception from the Undergraduate Program Committee (UPC), participate in Education Abroad or other internship or field study programs related to their LALS degree (three courses allowed), or are junior transfer students with approved transfer credit from another institution (up to four courses allowed).
