*The College Core Curriculum (CCC) is a compilation of required courses that students must take to graduate. Each CCC category has a variety of class options that fulfill the requirements, including courses that overlap into students’ major requirements. The above list is a suggested course outline; however, 60 course credits outside of this major are also required to meet the 120 hour minimum necessary for graduation. CCC requirements can be taken at any time during a student’s undergraduate studies. For more information, please see the University Course Catalog.

**Class requires a pre-requisite to be taken prior. ACCT 201 is a pre-requisite to ACCT 202. MUSB 101 is a pre-requisite to MUSB 230, 301, 304, and 470. MUSB 201 is a pre-requisite to MUSB 435. Both MUSB 201 and MUSB 320 are pre-requisites to MUSB 420 and 425.
