Credits Needed for Graduation by Major

catalog archive

The total number of course units needed for graduation varies between 32 and 36 depending on the number of course units required in the major. Each major specifies a certain number of course units that must be completed, but never less than 12. In addition to the major, students must normally complete 20 c.u. outside the major in order to satisfy the College General Education and Free Elective Requirements No more than 36 c.u. will be required for graduation.

Those whose majors require more than 16 c.u. may take correspondingly fewer than 20 outside the major. At least 16 of the 20 c.u. outside the major must be Arts and Sciences courses. See Policies Governing Non-College Courses. See Policies Governing Non-College Courses.

Students who are completing more than one major must use their largest major to calculate the number of course units required for graduation. For example, a student majoring in English (12 c.u.) and Fine Arts (16 c.u.) needs no more than 36 c.u. to graduate.

The number of course units required for the major and outside the major can be found by following the links below to listings in the University Catalog.
