Area of Emphasis

Specialty Areas

For undergraduate catalog years 2015 and earlier, students will take 27 Hours of electives called “CFS Specialty Areas” (most students choose 3 distinct specialty areas, and take 9 hours per area). For more information about these, click here.

Area of Emphasis

For undergraduate catalog years 2016 and later, the 27 hours of electives are called “Area of Emphasis” electives (Many of the same classes are listed as options, but the only requirement is the 27 total hours; we have removed the requirement to choose three distinct areas).

Students may contact Sally Hunter or meet with their advisor to discuss their area of emphasis options. Substitutions may be made to meet area of emphasis requirements with the approval of the student’s faculty advisor.
