          *Because there has been a moratorium on cross-listing, there are a number of courses not cross-listed that could fulfill a requirement.  Minors must bring a syllabus and course description to get written approval from the WMST DUS and/or the WMST Chair to have a non-cross listed course accepted for a major requirement
