The Program of Study is the basic structure for all undergraduate degrees, as described in ACAF 2.00. It is made up of four main components, with only two of those (Carolina Core and Major Requirements) being required to create a degree. All degree requirements should adhere to the components and sub-components of the Program of Study.
