What classes should I take?  

Each student should consider his or her own personal needs when selecting what courses and how many credits to take each semester. The Class Planning tool in  I-Plan is a powerful tool to assist you in mapping out your courses up to graduation. 

What are General Education courses and when do I take them?  

General Education courses are required of all majors and ensure that BYU-I graduates become not only employable, but also literate, well-rounded, cultured, and informed. See the General Education requirements in the  University Catalog. Most General Education requirements can be completed during your Freshman or Sophomore year. 

Are there classes I need to take my first semester for my major?  

We recommend trying to take the following courses your first semester if you are in any of the following majors.  However, if you cannot get into them this semester, they are also great options for your second semester:  

  • Elementary Education: ED 200  Teaching as a Profession (Elementary Education majors with a Math Education Minor should take FMAT 110X during their first semester, and not MAT 108)
  • Early Childhood/Special Education: ED 200  Teaching as a Profession
  • Marriage and Family Studies:  FAML 150  Intro to Marriage and Family Studies and FAML 160  Family Relations
