Can a course that meets a NUpath requirement also meet my major requirement?

Yes!! Many NUpath requirements are met by your major requirements either inside or outside your major department. Because the NUpath requirements are competency based and not course based, this provides flexibility to you as a learner to choose the context in which you experience learning the competency. Being competency based also ensures the rigor of meeting the NUpath requirements because the learning goals set the achievement level – not course content or level.

Analyzing and Using Data, for example, can be learned in the context of fields as diverse as electrical engineering, or psychology, or international business, or music industry. So once you find out which NUpath requirements are met by your major requirements, be sure to check out your minor or concentration requirements, too. Then pick something you are interested in exploring in order to meet your remaining NUpath requirements!
