Additional Graduation Requirements

I had an appointment recently with an advisor from ASU's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) where we discussed how many of the classes from my first B.S. would apply toward the new B.A. in Anthropology.

It looks like the requirements are stiffer than when I originally attended in the mid 1980s. In addition to all of the courses required for my major, I will also need to take courses which meet the following requirements. Many of them could count toward my major:

ASU General Studies
"L" Classes - "Literacy and Critical Inquiry" (6 hours needed, so pick two)

"C" Courses - "Cultural Diversity" (3 hours needed, pick one)

"H" Courses - "Historical" (3 hours needed, pick one)

CLAS - College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
"HU" Courses - "Humanities and Fine Arts" (3 hours needed, pick one)

"Bridge" Course (3 hours needed, pick one)

This totals up to 18 hours of additional requirements, although I can definitely take 9 of these hours as part of my major. Still, that's three additional courses whicch I did not expect to take.

For details on these new courses, see my updated plan.
