Notes

Students must complete one approved health ethics course: REL 229 (RD) or PHL 229 (PI) within their liberal studies program or a track elective in the major, HLTH 229.

Specified required courses within Liberal Studies may have grade minimums (e.g. C- or better). Please consult your advisor or your college and major requirements.​​

Students with a primary major in Health Sciences are required to complete the Capstone offered by the Health Sciences department. Students double majoring or pursuing dual degrees with the primary major or primary degree in Health Sciences are required to complete the Capstone offered by the Health Sciences department. Health Sciences students in the University Honors Program shall take the University Honors Capstone. They are not expected to take both the Honors Capstone and the primary major or primary degree Capstone.​​

Courses offered in the student's primary major cannot be taken to fulfill LSP Domain requirements. If students double major, LSP Domain courses may double count for both LSP credit and the second major. Students who choose to take an experiential learning course offered by the major may count it either as a general elective or the Experiential Learning requirement.

In meeting learning domain requirements, no more than one course that is outside the student’s major and is cross-listed with a course within the student’s major, can be applied to count for LSP domain credit. This policy does not apply to those who are pursuing a double major or earning BFA or BM degrees.
