^ The credit for CLC 120, College Success Seminar, is an institutional requirement for graduation. It is not part of the program requirements but must be completed with a D or better.

* GEG 122 and GEG 123 share an IAI number. Only one of these courses will count toward meeting the general education core curriculum requirement. If both are taken, one will count as an elective.

** Courses offered in different areas centered in Latin America if available.

Note: This plan includes recommendations for students who plan to major in this subject at a four year school. Students who follow this plan will meet the requirements of a general transfer degree (A.A. or A.S). The CLC degree earned will be a general transfer degree, not a degree in this specific area of study.
