Click on the links below for your preferred option and print out the 4 year plan/MAP (Major Academic Planner) and the MAJOR/GEAR planner if you have not already done so. Full listings of all GE classes can be found from p.62 onwards in the HSU catalog
The 4 year plan (MAP - Major Academic Planner) shows an example of how major and GE classes can be taken over 4 years. The exact order has some flexibility and will depend on where you are in your education when you arrive at HSU, e.g., you may need remedial Math; or you may have relevant AP credits from High School; or other classes taken at a Community College
These GEAR & Major planning guides have been adapted specifically for Wildlife majors - they
comprise a one-page checklist of all major classes, in the approximate order that they should
be taken; and a one- page GEAR (GE & All-University Requirements) class checklist.
Note: Lower Division GE's (LDGE) need to be taken before Upper Division GEs (UDGE).
All-university Requirements can be taken at any time.
Note that GE classes that double count for the major have been pre-filled for you.
Using a combination of the MAP and GEAR/major planner you can choose some classes for your first semester bearing the following advice in mind:
