Recommendations by Major

University faculty, staff and advisers worked together to recommend some examples of pathway experiences that relate to what you are studying in the classroom. Look for your major under your college or school and remember, these are examples and options, NOT requirements. Courses listed were selected by your department as related to particular pathway topic area, but are not necessarily approved for Graduation with Leadership Distinction in that pathway.  The approved GLD course lists are available in the GLD Requirements.

These recommendations are intended to help you make the most of your education by providing examples of experiences that illustrate how within and beyond the classroom experiences relate to one another. Can't find your major or area of interest below? Contact an advisor in your major program.
