Course Planning

GHP Course Planning

Standard, AP & Study Abroad

""Chart your course through the GHP program. Prerequisite courses may be completed beginning in freshman year. This will give you time to work them into your schedule, while avoiding departmental requirement conflicts. If you are planning to study abroad, starting early is important, as you will need to manage your semester planning carefully to complete the program. Have questions?  Contact us for help planning your courses.
