Credits Needed for Graduation by Major
Total Arts & Sciences C.U.
Because the Bachelor of Arts degree is fundamentally an Arts and Sciences curriculum, students are required to complete a minimum number of c.u. in the Arts & Sciences across the entire degree.
The total number of Arts & Sciences c.u. required across all the requirements for the B.A. degree is determined by the 16 Arts & Sciences c.u. outside the primary major and by the number of Arts & Sciences c.u. required in the major or major concentration.
In some cases, students may need additional c.u. beyond the major and Arts and Sciences in order to complete the total number of c.u. needed for the degree. In those cases, students can chooses courses from across the University. See Policies Governing Arts & Sciences Courses.
Students who are completing more than one major must use their largest major to calculate the number of course units and Arts and Sciences c.u. required for graduation. The largest major will be designated as primary by the College Office when the second major is declared.
