(WE) means a Writing Enhanced course. Any four courses with the WE designation are required for graduation. FSEM and JSEM are automatically WE designated. Students may select Gen Ed courses with or without the WE designation as long as four are taken at some point before graduation. More than four WE courses are suggested in this document, but more than four are not required.

ENSEMBLES: Students must take two semesters of chamber ensemble as part of their “Ensembles as assigned” listed above. Students consult with their advisor and major ensemble conductors as to which semesters will contain chamber ensemble credit. Vocalists and Instrumentalists approach Chamber ensembles differently.
