DHH 5-Year Course Sequences by Second Major

How to read and understand the 5-year sequence, including second major-specific course information

  • All students except those in art, music or iSTEM have two majors.  Education of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing is the Primary Major.  For art, iSTEM, and music students, there is only one integrated major.
  • Second Major = Courses specified by the respective content major (biology, English, history, math, psychology, sociology, Spanish or women and gender studies).  Each second major has specified 10 to 12 courses and possibly a particular quantitative reasoning course (math).  You will note that there are 11 “place holders” for courses in the second majors.  If your second major has 12 required courses, then you will need to complete some of that coursework in summer school or do a semester(s) in which you take 5 courses.
  • The two 400-level Reading History Seminars  cannot be completed in the same semester.  Both 400-level reading seminars must be completed prior to enrolling in  HIS 498 Senior Capstone Seminar.   With the dual major obligations, this will require some planning as early as the Spring semester sophomore year to space out these three seminars.
  • MAT 105 or 106 is required of Education majors.  (Deaf Education/math majors must specifically take MAT 105.)
  • English  majors should work carefully with an English adviser throughout their studies particularly in regard to the following:
  • DHH/English majors take LIT 310 and not RAL 225, WGS 225 or ECE 102.
  • All English  majors take two 499 classes.  These classes may not be taken in the same semester.
  • For psychology majors, SPE 203 counts as PSY 220.
  • A * indicates that the course is a graduate level class.  These courses are not counted toward the bachelor’s degree and may only be taken during the senior year.  No more than three graduate classes may be taken during the undergraduate portion of the program.  Students must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and have completed 24 course units in order to take a graduate course while still an undergraduate student.
