Upon completion of the Communication Skills courses (COSK), students must complete a component of courses, (the specific number is determined by the student's academic "School") to meet one of the requirements for graduation. These courses called "Communication Skills Intensive" are integrated into the degree as part of the "major" areas on the checksheet. If you should have questions about this degree requirement, consult your academic advisor or the department head of your major.
