NOTE: SF 320, SF 330, SF 341, SF 345 and SF 462 can be used for either the Aviation Safety Minor or the Occupational Safety Minor, but NOT both.

NOTE: Students in the Aeronautical Science degree program pursuing the Aviation Safety minor who complete SF 210/SF 320 and one other upper-level SF course will not be required to take AS 408. Students taking AS 408 will not be required to take SF 210. Students selecting this option must still meet the minimum number of hours required for degree completion in their declared area of concentration.
