Electives:


Technical: Consult with faculty advisor for appropriate courses.

Free: Consult with faculty advisor for appropriate courses.

Environmental Technical Elective: See advisor for suggested courses.

Management GUR: Students take IE 492 or Mgmt 390 or AS 333, which is acceptable only for students taking the aerospace option. Students enrolled in a dual degree program between architecture and management take HRM 601? to fulfill this requirement.

Cultural History GUR: Take two courses (6 credits) from among?HUM 211, HUM 212, Hist 213, and 200-level history courses at Rutgers-Newark.

Basic Social Sciences GUR: Three credits of the basic social sciences requirement must be taken in economics; acceptable courses are SS 201, Econ 265, or?Econ 266. The remaining 3 credits may be satisfied by HSS 202 . Students also may take approved introductory courses in basic social sciences at Rutgers-Newark to fulfill this requirement.

Lit/Hist/Phil/STS GUR:
Students must take one 300-level course from any of the following fields: literature; history; philosophy; or science, technology, and society (STS); or an approved 300-level course at Rutgers-Newark.

Open Elective in Humanities and Social Science GUR: Students must take one 300-level course from any of the following fields: English (Eng); history (Hist); literature (Lit); philosophy (Phil); science, technology, and society (STS); social science (SS); or theater (Thtr). Students also may satisfy this requirement with Architectural History IV (Arch 382) or by taking an approved 300-level course at Rutgers-Newark.

Engineering Technology GUR:
Two courses selected from among the following: any lower division or upper division courses in engineering (including EG, FED, and Mech courses); any upper division courses in architecture, computer science, or engineering technology, or? MIS 345.

Capstone Seminar in Humanities and Social Science GUR: All students, except those enrolled in the honors college, take one of the following: HSS 403,HSS 404, HSS 405, HSS 406, HSS 407, HSS 408, HSS 409. Students enrolled in the honors college take one from HSS 491H-499H .
