Course Catalog 2012-13
Students seeking a B.A. degree will complete approximately one-third of their work in each of three areas:
- Freshman Studies and General Education
- A major
- Elective study
The Freshman Studies and General Education requirements are designed to promote the breadth of study central to a liberal arts education, perspective on issues critical to a diverse America and an interconnected world and the development of skills essential for success in any discipline or profession.
The completion of a major provides focused, in-depth work in a single discipline.
Elective study affords students opportunities to develop secondary interests, work in areas complementary to their primary discipline or explore new fields of study.
