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 SOCIAL SCIENCE. If a HIST sequence is chosen, this course must be a CORE HUMANITIES.

3 Science Electives consist of a sequence of GEOL 1100-1110 or CHEM 1030/31 - 1040/41 or BIOL 1020/21 - 1030/31.

4 PHYS and Professional Electives must be at the 3000 level or higher. A Plan of Study indicating choices and physics advisor approval for Physics and Professional Electives must be on file in the Dean's Office before scheduling those courses.
