Undergraduate Policies

Major Field Requirements

Candidates for the Bachelor of Arts degree may not be required to take more than 45 credits in their major fields. Candidates for the Bachelor of Science degree may not be required to take more than 60 credits in their major fields. However, candidates for either degree may elect to take additional courses in the major beyond the specified maximum providing that such additional courses are not presented for the minimum degree requirement of 120 credits.

Credits for each course may be counted only once in a student’s program of studies. A course which is specified as a requirement for both a student’s major and minor will satisfy both requirements, as stated, but course credits may not be counted more than once and may be applied to one category of a student’s program of studies only.  Individual departments may have a more restrictive policy.
