You should attempt to take OL 107, OL 205, OL 206 as early as possible (within the first 2 semesters), as they are prerequisites for a number of courses in the major and minors.

Your capstone project (OL 499) will be developed in consultation with a faculty advisor, and will typically be performed in the last semester (or two) of your program.
