A minimum of 36 non-core hours must be earned in three disciplines. This includes a minimum of 12 non-core hours in each chosen discipline. At least 15 of the 47 hours must be 300 level or higher. Each discipline has its own requirements as listed below. If two concentrations share a course requirement, consult your advisor to select a substitute elective for one of the concentrations. Three disciplines are chosen from the following:

Accounting *
Art

* Of the three business department concentrations (Accounting, Business and Marketing), only one of the three may be included as an IDS concentration.

** Of the two physical and sport education department concentrations (Coaching and Sport Administration), only one of the two may be included as an IDS concentration.

*** If selecting both Linguistics and TESOL as concentrations, only LIN 150  will be allowed to count for both concentrations.  Six required LIN courses, one Linguistics elective and one TESOL elective course will comprise the 24 hours required for both concentrations.

Students should consult the respective departments early in their sophomore year to determine the frequency that required courses are offered. Then, begin organizing a draft of future fall and spring semester schedules to insure prerequisites are completed before core and concentration requirements need to be scheduled.
