General Education (GE) Requirements

Body

Students majoring in Data Analytics must satisfy the General Education (GE) requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Arts and Sciences. The following advising guidelines will help students strategically plan their GE courses to ensure timely progress toward completion of their degree.
