Scholarship List Requirement: Among content course electives listed above, SSE majors are required to complete at least three upper-level courses (300-400 level) from the "Scholarship List," each in a different content discipline: History, Government (Political Science), Psychology, Sociology, or Economics. Course instructors have agreed to include a writing-intensive, research-based, rubric-assessed assignment, the results of which are vital to program assessment. A list of courses currently on the “Scholarship List” can be obtained from the department or the SSE degree audit. Any upper-level course is potentially a “Scholarship” course, but the instructor must first consult the department, obtain a copy of the rubric, and agree to provide the assessment.
