General Education Worksheet

An important aspect of the curriculum is the fulfillment of the General Education requirements: http://www.union.edu/offices/gen-ed/index.php. The worksheet provided by the office of General Education will guide you towards completing these requirements.

Schedule Planner

There are many different paths through the curriculum and you should work closely with your advisor in determining the courses to take each term. We provide the following as a sample schedule of classes over the 4 years of study:

The Sophomore Year is particularly packed and most students either due to prerequisites or course size limitations will need to take a modified sequence of classes in the sophomore year. There is plenty of flexibility in the Junior and Senior years to allow for this and each student should work with their advisor in determining their courses each term. In general, we recommend that students aim to complete at least the following by the end of the Sophomore Year: BNG101, BIO112/101, BNG201 and BNG202, ECE225 and ECE240 (note that MTH130 is a corequisite or prerequisite for ECE240).

The Junior and Senior years provide for the selection of a large number of electives to satisfy the BNG and General Education requirements for graduation.
