Application procedure

The application consists of your name, major, date started at SXU and expected date of graduation. You must also include a one- to two-page response to the following question:

"David is interested in pursuing a Math or Computer Science degree from SXU. His family is supportive, but they don't understand why David needs to also take liberal arts courses (such as History, Religious Studies, or Fine Arts) in order to meet his graduation requirements. How can David convince his family of the importance of a broad general education background in Math and Computer Science fields?"
