Preset Freshmen and Sophomore Pathways

To ensure that students begin and remain on track in terms of graduation and degree requirements, and to maximize student opportunities to add minors or second majors, and therefore increase their options after graduation, the College has designed the Preset Freshmen and Sophomore Pathways.

This curricular sequencing model, which outlines all the courses taken in the first two years, will allow students to complete 75% to 90% of their General Education requirements during just their freshman and sophomore years, as well as all foundational gateway and milestone courses, both in their intended major, and in other complementary majors and minors that they may want to consider.

Students will then be able to focus their junior and senior years almost entirely on their major, as well as on potential minors or second majors.

Simply put, this curricular sequencing model allows students to get the most out of their undergraduate education at CSE.
