EPDM Curriculum Clarification

There has been quite a bit of confusion related to the requirements in the EPDM core and specializations.  Both sections indicate that a certain number of courses are required, there is also a units (credit hours) total that appears on the right hand side.  The number of courses indicated does not always equal the units total.  We will revise the curriculum guides to clarify that the requirement is the number of units indicated, not necessarily a number of courses.  For example, a student could take 5 courses within their specialization and only have 12 units, however 15 are required.

The requirements are:
EPDM Major Additional Core Requirements:  Total of 18 credits required (1 course must come from each category)
EPDM Major Specialization:  Total of 15 credits required from chosen specialization area
