Upper Division Requirements:

At least 32 upper division credits from the lists below. 24 must be taken at UO. At least twelve must be in one field and at least twelve in a second field. At lease 24 must be taken as graded, not P/NP, though we strongly suggest all class used for the major be graded. 4 of the 32 may be research (401), thesis (403), or supervised college teaching (402) credits. Note for double majors, upper division credits used for another major may not be used to satisfy GenSc requirements.
