Liberal Arts / Bachelor of Arts
Total Credit Hours:
Major Credit Hours:
The Liberal Arts major provides the student with a broad foundation in the arts and/or sciences. For example, the student can study two very different minors, such as Art and Chemistry, or two minors closely aligned but not overlapping, such as Literature and History. The Liberal Arts major is fulfilled by completing the credit hours necessary for two minors; thus, total credit hours will vary.
This is a stand-alone major. Courses in the two minors may not be duplicates. Courses used to fulfill the Liberal Arts major may not be used to apply to other minors (except in the case of general education courses, which may be shared with a third minor or a certificate program). A student may, if his or her schedule permits, earn a third minor taking other courses. Any two minors in the College of Arts and Sciences may be chosen. Ideally, the combination of the two minors gives the student the opportunity to focus on knowledge pertinent to the student's career or personal enrichment.
I. A Liberal Arts major selects any two minors from those offered in the College of Arts and Sciences. The consent of each department chairperson is required.
