The Quadrants of a Gonzaga Degree


Gonzaga University has a 4-tier system of required courses for Graduation:

I. University Core: Consists of 31 credits that all students complete. For University Core Curriculum, click here.

II. School/College Core: Each School or College has its own set of Core requirements in addition to the University Core.  Gonzaga University has five Schools of study for undergraduates. Each link below will take you to the School/College website where you can learn more about their school/college core curriculum, as well as their majors/minors/certifications offered.  

III. Majors/Minors/Certification: These requirements are found in the Undergraduate Catalogue, listed alphabetically within the appropriate School/College section (e.g., biology in Arts & Sciences, accounting in Business Administration).  You can find your catalogue at

IV. Electives: After adding together the credits from University Core, School/College Core, and Major/Minor/Certification credit requirements, electives may be necessary to reach the minimum 128 credits needed to graduate.  The number of electives needed varies significantly, depending on your field(s) of study. (Please note: some majors require more than 128 credits to graduate.)
