  • General electives may also be used to pursue a second major or minor.
  • Students who are planning to graduate with English Honors must take two additional advanced electives. These should be taken in the senior year in place of General Electives.
  • Please note: Classes and program requirements are subject to change. Students who enroll at Seton Hall will follow the catalogue guidelines for the year they matriculate. Catalogues for each year are generally released in the late summer.
