Long range schedules for COSAM courses are online at http://aub.ie/cosamlrs 
Courses in BOLD will be used to calculate GPA in major.
Options for courses labeled CORE are in the Auburn University Bulletin (www.auburn.edu/bulletin) under Core Curriculum.

1 Students must complete a two-course sequence in either HIST or LIT (for example, World History 1 and 2 or American Lit 1 and 2). For complete HIST and LIT sequence options, see the Bulletin.

2 If a LIT sequence is chosen, this course must be a CORE SOC SCI. If a HIST sequence is chosen, this course must be a CORE HUMANITIES.
