Program Requirements

Students are required to take 2 semester(s) of any second language.

Students develop a coherent program of study in consultation with their major advisers generally no later than the spring semester of their sophomore year. Advisers normally are faculty with a background or specialties related to the human services area.

Because LAHS students pursue varied careers, they are advised to include in their programs courses appropriate to their career plans. In all instances, students should consult with their advisers when designing their programs.

Students should discuss the arrangement of their field experience with their LAHS adviser no later than the fall semester of their junior year. Information concerning specific field placements can be obtained from the directory of the Career Center or an LAHS adviser.

No grades below C- are allowed.

A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required in the major to graduate. The GPA includes all, and only, University of Minnesota coursework. Grades of "F" are included in GPA calculation until they are replaced.
