*GE Interdisciplinary Capstone classes may be able to Count in GE and the major - see advisor.

Students can satisfy both upper division GE capstone requirements and POSC breadth and/or elective requirments by taking POSC 3881, POSC 395I, POSC 461I, and/or POSC 494I.

Students who do not take 200-level major elective in the second year may take it in their third year.

Students who need to meet the GE Human Diversity requirement may use POSC 323 to satisfy that requirement while using it as a POSC major elective or to meet the POSC breadth requirement, or concentration requirement (but not the subfield capstone.)

Senior Seminor is offered only once a year. Students should take it the first semester in which it appears during their senior year.
