Students interested in majoring in civil engineering should take the following courses in the following sequence. Although variations of the core classes are possible, it is recommended that students take all the asterisked (*) courses (required for the major) as suggested below. Students should always check with their advisor if they have questions about a proposed variation including taking any summer courses.

To fulfill the core requirements for a Rockhurst degree, students must fulfill at least one each of the ARI, HSI, and LTI core requirements. For a complete list of courses that fulfill core requirements see The Core Curriculum .

A grade of C or better is required in all asterisked (*) courses (required for the major). Students are responsible for checking prerequisites for any course.

Transfer courses at the 3000- or 4000-level are only accepted with prior advisor approval.

A minimum of 60 hours of service is required. The recommended minimum number of service hours for each year are: 10 hours during the freshman year, 15 hours during sophomore and junior years, and 20 hours during senior year.

See a sample view of the Civil Engineering Degree Map .
