According to the STHM 8-semester plan, students must take at least 12 credits of Free Electives. In some cases this number needs to
be increased to meet the 124 credits required for graduation. Examples include:
 If a student takes a 3-credit Gen Ed Arts (GA) class (8 semester plan reflects a 4 credit GA), one credit would be added to the free
elective credit total
 A student fulfills the Global/World Society (GG) requirement by participating in an approved summer or semester study abroad
program. The student would be given a waiver for their GG requirement, but must still acquire 3 credits. Thus, the 3 credits shift
from the Gen Ed credit total to the Free Elective credit total
Students can use Free Elective Credits to take any courses at Temple, but are encouraged to consider these options:
 Take additional STHM major electives of interest. Students are required to take four major electives, but may choose to take
more to fulfill the free elective requirement and meet the 124 credits needed for graduation.
 Earn a Minor or Certificate. Temple University offers many Minors and Certificates. Choices that fit easily into the 8 semester
