Are core courses the same for all majors?

To some extent, yes. All students must take two semesters of freshman composition (ENGL 1303 and 1304 or 1309 and 1310), two semesters of American History (generally HIST 1377 and 1378), plus two semesters of state and national government (POLS 1336 and 1337 for most students). However, choice of core courses in certain core areas, especially math/reasoning, natural sciences, and social sciences, can be highly affected by your choice of major. For example: BIOL 1310 [for non-science majors] will not fulfill any requirements for a student who is a Biology major. Talk to the advisor in the department of your major about how your choice of major could affect which core courses you take.
