Major Electives

BS IT Major Electives can be chosen from any 200-level or 300-level CDM course. Appropriate non-CDM courses will be accepted as major electives if approved by the student’s advisor. Students must earn a grade of C- or higher in all major elective courses.

Open Electives

Open Elective Credit Hours are required to meet the minimum graduation requirements of 192 hours. Open electives may be taken from any unit at DePaul.

Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies program is the general education portion of the curriculum at DePaul University. Students must earn a grade of D or better in all courses taken to satisfy these requirements. The only exception is the Capstone course which is considered also a major requirement and WRD 103 and WRD 104 in which students need to earn a C- or better.

Students may choose to take some CDM courses that carry Liberal Studies credit but they cannot double count them if they are part of the major requirements. A complete list of courses that carry Liberal Studies credit can be found on the Liberal Studies website along with an overview of the Liberal Studies requirements for this program. Students can search for courses that satisfy a particular Liberal Studies requirement on campusconnect.

Note Students must complete an ethics class as one of the Philosophical Inquiry or Religious Dimensions requirements. Students must take one of the following ethics courses: CSC 208, PHL 248/MGT 248 or REL 228/MGT 228. In this sample schedule the ethics requirement replaces one of the Philosophical Inquiry requirements.

Although students are free to take course requirements in any order they choose, provided they have mastered the course-specific prerequisites, it is strongly recommended that students follow these year-by-year suggestions, especially regarding the first-year major courses.

Courses offered in the student's primary major cannot be taken to fulfill LSP Domain requirements.

  • complete a minimum of 192 credit hours (generally 48 courses)
