Greetings all, have been perusing this amazing resource for a few weeks now. Applied to a TESU and COSC, ultimately went with COSC due to their better customer support as they both accepted the same amount of credits from me. This all is a bit overwhelming, not sure if I made the right call, but I begin the cornerstone course next week. Reading through this forum I now see I probably should have knocked all my gen ed requirements out first but I needed to just bite the bullet and get this process started or I will procrastinate for another 15 years. My end goal is to test out/ use expeditied courses from SL etc as much and as fast as possible. Any and all recommendations or advice is greatly appreciated.
So here goes: looking to obtain a BS in general studies with concentration in crim justice.
Credits needed: 120
Total credits accepted: 81
Liberal arts credit needed: 60 / have 28
UL credits needed: 30 / have 21
Free electives completed: 33cr
What I have fulfilled:
Natural science 4 cr with lab (need 3 cr No lab)
Crim justice CPS
9 U/L free elective in area of study
Mat 102 Statistics (satisfies both statistics requirement and math gen ed req)
Crj 105 Intro to crim just
CMP 103 computer programming
What I need :
Oral communication: 3cr
Ethical decision making : 3cr (Crj 325 or PSA 305 satisfies Area of concentration req as well)
Natural science: 3cr (no lab)
Global understanding: 3cr
Lit & fine arts : 3cr
Non US history: 3cr
Us history: 3cr
Total gen ed needed: 21
Crim justice CPS
need 36 credits, 15 UL ( have 9 UL electives)
Evaluation & research methods
One of following: criminology/nature of crime/sociology of crime/theory of crime
Ethics in crim justice
Diversity in CJ
One of following: civil liberties/constitutional law/civil rights
Also I have yet to put on a transcript 2 UL continuing education credits from New Mexico Tech that equate to Chem engineering 389/481. It will cost me another approx 500 to get them on a transcript and I'm not sure they will fulfill any requirements to be worth the money.
Again if anyone has any recommendations on the easiest and fastest way to knock the remaining requirements for a BS degree I would be beyond grateful.
