Major and Minor Requirements

A major is an area of study in which the student specializes by taking 30 or more semester hours. Majors are of two kinds: those based in an academic department, such as English or Psychology, and those organized on an interdepartmental basis, such as Communication.

Candidates for degrees must complete the requirements for a major as established by the academic division in which the major is offered. No major will consist of fewer than 30 semester hours. Students wishing to graduate with a minor must complete at least 18 semester hours in a selected discipline. Specific minor requirements are listed within the divisional sections of this catalog.

A candidate for a degree must, no later than the beginning of the junior year, file an application for a major with the Division Chair and the Registrar. For admission requirements to specific programs, refer to the major.
