If you are pursuing one of the degrees in this pathway, you will want to enroll in 15 units each semester to graduate in approximately two years. This would require 30 units in your first year. Some of those units you earn in your first year should be in Math, English, and your major! Not only will earning 9 units in your major your first year keep you on track to your degree, it may also help you earn a certificate on the way!
