Entering freshmen will take the JU Core Curriculum that includes MATH 110 or any higher-level mathematics (MATH) course that includes Calculus. The laboratory science is included in the Major.  Students who desire a BA degree must complete foreign language through the 202 level as part of the JU core.  Students who desire a BS require 3 hours of international studies as part of the JU core.  Special topics courses can fulfill Major requirements with approval of the sustainability program coordinator.
