Major Field Requirement
All candidates for a baccalaureate degree must select a major field of study and complete all requirements for that major.
Each department, departmental section, or interdisciplinary program at the College is responsible for determining the content and requirements of the majors it offers. The requirements for each major are listed under the alphabetical listings of departments in this Bulletin. Students must select a major by the time they have earned 60 college credits and must record their choices in the Office of the Registrar (Shuster Hall, Room 106). Students are advised to consult with prospective departments about a major as soon as possible.
Restrictions for the B.A. degree: No more than 42 credits may be required within one department. No more than 64 credits may be required as a major.
Restrictions for the B.S. and B.F.A. degrees: No more than 64 credits may be required within one department. No more than 85 credits may be required as a major.
Note: Students may take no more than 60 credits in any one department.
