*General Education requirements are fulfilled using the liberal arts electives. The term 'introductory level' refers to those courses for which there are no prerequisites and/or courses numbered below 300. A course with no prerequisite and a number below 300, but specified as being intermediate or advanced in nature by the department teaching the course, may be used as a non-introductory elective.
**SOM strongly recommends that students take CQS 112 as their required course in statistics. No more than one introductory statistics course may count toward the degree.
***Other introductory statistics courses are MATH 147, MATH 148, PSYC 243 and ECON 366.
****A minimum of 60 credits of liberal arts coursework is required to apply for the NYS CPA License. Only one of the two economics courses counts as liberal arts.
*****Students with a bulletin year prior to Fall 2014 are required to complete 130 credits hours for the BS in Accounting.
