Approved MSC 372 and 500-level classes offered by the Rosenstiel School
Total Credit Hours16

For students in the College of Engineering that take the MSC 111 section for Engineers you will be waived from the MSC 112 requirement.


At least 6 of which must be at the 300-level or higher.


 Students majoring in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Science should replace MSC 111 and MSC 112 with an additional elective, and all electives must be above and beyond those used for the major. The Marine Science minor fulfills the requirements of a STEM cognate. Only those courses passed with a grade of “C-” or higher may be applied to the major or minor.
