      • To satisfy the General Education Assessment Policy students must take the GEA exam during the semester in which a total of 45 credit
        hours will be earned. The minimum score of 425 must be achieved by the semester in which 75 credit hours will be earned. Go to

Biology Major (Area 3: Wildlife & Natural Resource Conservation), B.S. Degree - 120 hours

      • *See the 2010 Undergraduate Catalog for list of appropriate major area electives.

      • **Instead of BIOL 4102 (a 3 hour option) students may also opt to take an 8 or 9 hour option consisting of BIOL 2511 Genetics (4
        hours) with either CHEM 1104 (4 hours) or CHEM 1131 (5 hours). If this is chosen CHEM 1104 or CHEM 1131 will fulfill 3 hours of
        science general education. The number of free choice electives will vary depending on choices made.

      • This major does not build in the minimum number (30) of upper-level credit hours required for graduation. Be sure to include upper-
        level choices (3000/4000) in your major electives, general education, and/or free choice electives.

      • To satisfy the General Education Assessment Policy students must take the GEA exam during the semester in which a total of 45 credit
        hours will be earned. The minimum score of 425 must be achieved by the semester in which 75 credit hours will be earned. Go to

Chemistry Major, B.A. Degree - 120 hours

      • *Enrollment in CHEM 1131 and MATH 1151 is dependent upon one or more of the following: math placement level, high school math
        courses completed, ACT/SAT standardized test scores, and/or a possible mathematics placement examination.

      • **Refer to the Bachelor’s Degree Requirements section in the catalog for the B.A. Modern Language requirement. This plan is based on
        taking two modern language courses and ENGL 2220 for general education Literature.

      • ***AE 1400 is a free choice elective and is highly recommended for academic success. If AE 1400 is chosen, 1 less hour of free
        choice electives will be needed.

      • #College Physics 1102 is not required for the BA in Chemistry but is required for preprofessional programs such as pre-med and
        pre-pharmacy, pre-dental, pre-vet. It is recommended to take these your sophomore year. Physics 1101 will meet 3 hours of science
        general education and Physics 1102 will count towards 4 hours of free choice electives.

      • ##Upper level chemistry courses offered variably. Check department for actual offerings.

      • To satisfy the General Education Assessment Policy students must take the GEA exam during the semester in which a total of 45 credit
        hours will be earned. The minimum score of 425 must be achieved by the semester in which 75 credit hours will be earned. Go to

Computer Information Systems Major (Networking), B.S.B.A. Degree - 124 Hours

      • *Students in this major must complete eight preadmission courses with a grade of C or higher and obtain a 2.25 cumulative
        GPA, and a 2.25 in these specific courses, for admission to the degree program. These courses are recommended for completion

Earth Science Major, B.A. Degree - 120 hours

      • *AE 1400 (1 hr) is highly recommended for academic success. If AE 1400 is chosen, 1 less hour of free choice electives will be
        needed.

      • **Refer to the catalog for the B.A. Degree Modern Languages requirements. This plan is based on 9 hours of modern language.

      • This major does not build in the minimum number (30) of upper-level credit hours required for graduation. Be sure to include upper-
        level choices (3000/4000) in your major electives, general education, and/or free choice electives.

      • To satisfy the General Education Assessment Policy students must take the GEA exam during the semester in which a total of 45 credit
        hours will be earned. The minimum score of 425 must be achieved by the semester in which 75 credit hours will be earned. Go to

Economics Major, B.S. Degree - 124 Hours
      • *AE 1400 or BADM 1400 (1 hr.) are highly recommended for academic success. AE 1400 or BADM 1400 are a free choice

      • +CIS 1600 taken Fall 2010, Spring 2011, or Summer 2011 may substitute for BTE 1210 and CIS 1605 and will fulfill UCM’s
        General Education Division II Area A Part II Technology requirement. This will increase the required number off free choice electives
        by one hour.

      • Some ECON classes are offered fall or spring semester only – check with the department for course offerings.

      • The above degree program is based on a 24-hour minor. Number of free choice electives will vary with minor choice.

      • To satisfy the General Education Assessment Policy students must take the GEA exam during the semester in which a total of 45 credit
        hours will be earned. The minimum score of 425 must be achieved by the semester in which 75 credit hours will be earned. Go to

Elementary Education Major (Grades 1 - 6), B.S. in Ed. Degree - 128 hours

      • *Students selecting a math minor will enroll in MATH 2802 instead of 2801 and must contact the math faculty advisor or academic
        advisor before enrolling.
      • **A teaching area of concentration is a content area for which UCM sponsors certification. For elementary education majors, these
        are: Art, Early Childhood, English, Family and Consumer Sciences, French, German, Health Education, Instructional Technology,
        Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Spanish, Special Education, and Speech Communication/Theatre. These range in hours from
        21 to 28. The above plan is based on a 21 credit hour area of concentration.
      • A 15 hour block of General Education courses in Math, Written Communication, History or Political Science, and Science must be
        completed in the first four semesters to prepare for the College-BASE for Teachers exam. These courses are indicated on this guide in
        bold italics. Take the College-BASE exam the semester following completion of the 15 hour set of General Education courses. Students
        must pass all five areas of the College-BASE for Teachers exam as a prerequisite for admission to the Teacher Education Program and
        prior to taking 4000-level Education courses.
      • See www.ucmo.edu/cert for statement and information (including application) on admission to teacher education. Full admission
        is required before student teaching and enrollment in professional education classes. The application for student teaching is due
        approximately one year in advance.

Flight Operations Management Major, B.S. Degree – 120 hours


      • *Students are encouraged to consider adding a Business Administration minor. If interested in the minor option, students should take
        ACCT 2101 instead of ACCT 2100, BTE 1210 instead of LIS 1600, and MGT 3315 instead of INDM 4210. In addition, CIS 1605
        would be needed to complete the minor.

      • **AE 1400 is a free choice elective and is highly recommended for academic success. If AE 1400 is chosen, 1 less hour of free choice
        electives will be needed.

      • To satisfy the General Education Assessment Policy students must take the GEA exam during the semester in which a total of 45 credit
        hours will be earned. The minimum score of 425 must be achieved by the semester in which 75 credit hours will be earned. Go to UCM

Mathematics Major, B.A. Degree - 120 hours

      • *Refer to the Bachelor’s Degree Requirements section for the B.A. Modern Language requirement. This plan is based on nine
        hours of modern language.

      • **AE 1400 is a free choice elective and is highly recommended for academic success. If AE 1400 is chosen, 1 less hour of free
        choice electives will be needed.

      • ***This class is only offered during the semester indicated.

      • #Choose six hours of Major Electives from the list in the 2010 Undergraduate Catalog. Upper level electives (3000/4000) are
        strongly recommended to help in meeting the 30 hours minimum required for graduation.

      • This major does not build in the minimum number (30) of upper-level credit hours required for graduation. Be sure to include
        upper-level choices (3000/4000) in your major electives, general education, and/or free choice electives.

      • To satisfy the General Education Assessment Policy students must take the GEA exam during the semester in which a total of
        45 credit hours will be earned. The minimum score of 425 must be achieved by the semester in which 75 credit hours will be
        earned. Go to UCM Testing Services in MyCentral for more information.
