  5. GEH Courses (12 credits): Four courses, chosen from an approved list (see below), to gain knowledge in sub-plan area.
    • At least one course must be an ECON course on approved sub-plan list. (Note: these courses may have additional prerequisites.)
    • At least one course must be at the 400 level.
    • Must include at least two academic subjects.

    Note: Complete term specific sub-plan course lists may be found on the PICS courses website.

  6. Three electives (9 credits): The electives are designed to allow students to further personalize their major. Students will elect three advanced courses which will be expected to build upon the theme of their sub-plans. The selected courses should thus contribute to the coherence of the student's overall concentration. Students may select additional sub-plan, regional, or relevant study abroad courses, however there is no preapproved list of electives. Because there is no preapproved list, students must seek and obtain the approval of elective courses - on a course-by-course basis - from a PICS advisor. It is strongly advised that this approval be obtained before taking the class.
