The college I'm going to as of next Fall, has a curriculum for my major, semester by semester. The liberal arts courses are all subjective but the major related courses are all picked out even though there are many others to choose from.
I already have most of my schedule planned out and it's pretty similar to the curriculum for the first semester, but it definitely won't follow it in the years to come. The curriculum has classes (not core classes), that I feel like I could supplement for other classes (that are still major related classes) that I'd rather take and would still fulfill my major requirements on time.
Do I have to completely follow the curriculum or is it more of a suggested guide? Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, I just really need some insight.
