COSC BA structure?

Finding exactly this. The two course for American Art in American Studies (maybe a community college instead?), plus CRJ-315 Race, Class & Gender in the Criminal Justice System and CRJ-325 Ethics in Criminal Justice, don't seem to have any alt options. Constitutional Law is also proving to be a bit of a bugbear.
I might have a bit of a hunt around. If I can find them for under $500 each somewhere, and if they come in as UL, I might be able to scrape together the cash. If a course interests me I'd rather pay $800 for a course I will enjoy, than one like Psych stats. It makes no difference ultimately, but psychologically, it makes it easier to sacrifice the money.

Research Methods for Behaviour Science and Victimology no longer being UL is a major downer. I'd have to find ULs for Race, Class & Gender; Ethics in CJ; AND Const Law just to make the UL minimum. It's not looking hopeful, but I'll see what I can find.

I really like this about COSC - a lot more options for electives, so you can pursue more random courses that interest you.

I was going to see if ASU's Human Origins will apply for the Global Understanding requirement, but if that doesn't work, I'll give Human Geography a go.

I'm currently doing a BS in Psych from COSC and I can confirm there is no easy substitute for Statistics in the Social Sciences that you're required to have. They won't take regular stats courses

I just took it from them directly. It was fine, nothing crazy
Study.com - 171 CR. TESU - 27 CR. Middle Georgia State University - 15 CR. Sonoran Desert Institute - 6 CR. COSC - 6 CR. Excelsior - 6 CR. CLEP - 6 CR. Sophia - 14 CR. TEEX - 2 CR. Shmoop - 18 CR. NFA - 4 CR. The Institutes - 2 CR. FEMA - 20ish

BA in History/English from TESU
 
AS in Firearms Technology from SDI  (in progress)
BS in Psychology from COSC  (in progress)

Thanks for this - it's good to know it isn't too hard. There definitely does not seem to be much in the way of substitutes for this course. Do you remember the approx cost? Was this the only COSC course that you took?

COSC is $1,131 for a 3cr course (with Study.com or SL discount); I gave you several cheaper options in another post if you want to look at those.

I've got your U of Idaho suggestion on my roadmap! But I'm not entirely confident of my statistics and maths abilities even in the best of cases, so I'm just a little cautious since the U of Idaho courses sound a lot more self-driven. I'd rather pay $1000 for a course I'll pass than $500 for one that I might fail.

I wonder if the Learning and Memory course could be fulfilled with U of Idaho's Psychology of Learning (PSYC390)? They seem a very close match, if not synonymous.
